The origin of Messing About In Sailboats

  • The original quote is from Kenneth Grahame's Wind In the Willows: "There is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats."

The Bilge Pumps have an original song that might fit on the list. It's called Pirating the Seas and you can get it free on our welcome page. http://welcome.thebilgepumps.com
For those pirates looking up to and down to 40. :)

Boat Captains License

Great list! My fiancee is planning to surprise me by taking me out on his new boat one night (I ruined the surprise I know). I will have to compile a CD of some of these songs to take with us. It help-s that I already own a majority of the artists listed, so maybe I'll have to download the ones I don't know. Thanks again for this list.

I'm super late to the party, but these are on my sailing list -
* Heart "Mistral Wind"
* Broken Bells "Sailing To Nowhere"
* VAST "The Blue"
* Republic Tigers "Buildings and Mountains"

The last one to me, is about sailors who find more peace on the sea than they do amongst the 'landlubbers'. I live in New England and the melody alone conjures images of the tempestuous North Atlantic and the old sea dogs who love her.

The VAST song for some reason reminds me of "Edmund Fitzgerald". Similar melodies, perhaps?

Happy sailing :)
