I thought I was the only one working on a playlist!!! Uhm... I'm kind of weird but my two I added last night was Sea of Love by Cat Power and... Rehab by Amy Winehouse. I am being very serious, no disrespect to the artist... I will be amused listening to his on my iPod with a DOD in hand...

 

Nice list!!!

 

Others on my list include:

 

Dream On by Aerosmith

Sail by Awolnation

Skinny Love by Birdy

No Rain by Blind Melon

Linger by The Cranberries

Seven Nation Army by Jamar Rodgers (Dude from The Voice)

Freak on a Leash by Korn

Hips Don't Lie by Shakira

Breath Me by Sia

Bullet with Butterfly Wings by Smashing Pumpkins

 

and...

 

Literally EVERY song ever recorded by Nirvana

 

They aren't all appropriately themed, but they are all my jams! Glad to know I'm not the only one that puts some work into their tunes... ;)

A big thank you to everyone who posted!!!

 

I have helped support Apple and iTunes over the years, and I don't have a lot of these songs...but am going to buy them!! Increasing iTunes purchases cuts into my cruise budget, though (not really)

 

I then make my own playlists to listen to while I walk on the treadmill.

 

If anyone wants to contribute a small - or large - treadmill song list, I am all ears :)

Maybe I missed it, maybe I am too old, but the best one has been left off...

 

Love, exciting and new, come aboard we're expecting you...

 

The original love boat song. I always sing that to myself when embarking.

 

Google it. They even have the tune. :)

What? No Gordon Lightfoot's seminal The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald?

 

re: Gordon Lightfoot...I can recommend 'Biscuit City':

 

Oh the water is of emerald

And the beach is white as snow

And everyone's got money

And no place to go

In a land of milk and honey

It can really make you smile

And if I had a ticket

I would stay in Biscuit City for a while

 

other recommendations:

 

On An Island - David Gilmour

One Big Holiday - My Morning Jacket

Surfer Joe and Moe the Sleaze - Neil Young

Rock Me on the Water - Jackson Browne

Haitian Divorce - Steely Dan

Kahuna Sunset - Buffalo Springfield

Black Diamond Bay -Dylan

When The Ship Comes In - Dylan (prefer the Clancy Bros version)...

Of course, plus the traditional Lake Huron folk song "The Schooner Persia". There are some other really good shipwreck songs, but these two are in a class by themselves. In addition, I knew the Captain of the Fitzgerald.

Kinda late to the party here, but I read through and didn't see this one listed -- it's the reason I booked Holland America's 28-day Hawaii-Tahiti-Marquesas cruise in Mar-Apr 2019 (well, one of the reasons -- I've been interested in French Polynesia ever since I saw a production of South Pacific, and I've been a musician most of my life, so there's that, too ...)

 

Southern Cross -- Crosby Stills & Nash

 

Some of the lyrics:

Got out of town on a boat goin' to Southern Islands

Sailing a reach before a followin' sea

She was makin' for the trades on the outside

And the downhill run to Papeete

Off the wind on this heading lie the Marquesas

We got eighty feet of the waterline nicely making way

When you see the Southern Cross for the first time

You understand now why you came this way

'Cause the truth you might be runnin' from is so small

But it's as big as the promise, the promise of a comin' day

So I'm sailing for tomorrow my dreams are a-dyin'

And my love is an anchor tied to you (tied with a silver chain)

I have my ship and all her flags are a-flyin'

She is all that I have left and music is her name
