Two weeks ago, I came up with a list of ten songs with "sail" in the title, and asked if anyone else had any, to leave me a comment and tell me what they are. I got seven songs from y’all, some of which didn’t have "sail" in the title but which had sailing as a theme. Being me, I decided to throw them all in and add a few of my own. Thanks to The Sicilian Storyteller, Paula, Bluebird of Bitterness, Willow, and Cathy, who suggested songs.
- Rod Stewart, “Sailing” [Willow, Cathy, Paula)
- Ella Fitzgerald, “A Ship Without A Sail” (Cathy, The Sicilian Storyteller)
- The Irish Rovers, “Drunken Sailor” (Bluebird)
- Mike Oldfield, “Blue Peter” (Willow)
- Nathan Evans, “Wellerman” (Willow)
- Dido, “White Flag” (Willow)
- The Beach Boys, “Sloop John B” (Willow)
- Bobby Darin, “Beyond The Sea” (John)
- Charles Trenet, “La Mer (Beyond The Sea)” (John)
- Sailor Moon theme (English) (John)
nd that’s Monday’s Music Moves Me for February 13, 2023.
Monday’s Music Moves Me is sponsored by Cathy, Alana, and Stacy, so be sure and visit them, where you can also find the Linky for the other participants.

I enjoyed so much of your set, especially the Irish/sea chanties. I never knew Beyond the Sea was a French song from 1946. I always learn something from your MMMM posts. Sail on! Alana ramblinwitham
Glad you enjoyed it!
Listening to Sailor Moon theme song reminded me of the days my daughters watch the animated TV series. What sweet memories! Excellent playlist. Thanks for joining the 4M party. Have a boogietastic week, my friend!
Thanks! Gladvit could bring back some memories….
A great collaboration and list, John

Thanks, John. I come from generations of water/boat people. I was having more struggles in circumstance (which though all upsetting can always be worse) and this helped to “ground” me? Nope. Helped to revive my buoyant spirit some. My daughter loves Gaelic Storm, so I liked a lot of the Celtic stuff here. Groups play a lot of that around the Great Lakes here in music establishments. That was fun, too.
It’s was fun to join in thank you John ☺️
This was a fun one because of the theme. I love the Irish Rovers. This song does not have sailing I the title but I love this song…The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. By The Sea is an oldie but I often think about it. There is also a funny song that Fred Astaire sings in the film, “Roberta” where sea is mentioned.
You can see that half the songs didn’t have “sail” in some form in the title. Now which song was it in “Roberta” that has a nautical theme?
Sorry, wrong movie…Follow the fleet…” We saw the sea” which says nothing bout Sail….lol
