Default Best Songs for the Boat

I'm looking to add a Boat Mix to my iPOD and I was wondering what you guys thought were the best Boat Songs. I'm partial to Country, Classic Rock and Jimmy Buffet. Lets hear your favorites!

Jimmy Buffett is cofounder of the Save the Manatee Club and an enemy of boating in Florida.

You will never hear him anywhere I am!

Allman Bros and AC/DC. Always have to have Skynryd as well. For country, gotta go George Strait's original greatest hits and some Alan Jackson.

Hendrix while running is pretty tough to beat. Glen just made me go diggin for a little feat CD. I haven't listened to them in years. Always like Steelydan while fishing but all suggested so far are great. Allman Brothers are great too. I have found myself listening to some different suff the last few years that the music biz labels Alternative Country. Guys Like Ryan Adams, Son Volt, Tim Easton, Wilco, Etc. Ryan Adams is probably top of my personal list right now. Then I always go back to my roots and put some Bluegrass on.

Tight lines and great thread! Bob

On my last boat we had an "all reggae" rule. This summer on the new boat we listened mostly to Bing Crosby and some 80's mix CDs, with some reggae and Led Zeppelin thrown in.

I have become a big fan of Amazon MP3 downloads, which allow me to create my own boat-specific mix CD's (without fear of reprisal from the RIAA).

You also need a playlist for when you have some girls on the boat. lots of new fast beat stuff like Jennifer lopez and justin temberlake. You my laugh now but when that hot summer day comes when the wives or girlfriends are drinking and feel like dancing around in their bikinis you will thank me.

My current favorite boating song is "All Summer Long" by Kid Rock. The video is all about boating and partying on the water, my kind of partying.

I also like the song he sampled, Lynard Skynard "Sweet Home Alabama"

Agreed.....great tune and way to start the morning!

later in day when wind kicks up-->'Don't Rock The Boat' by Hues Corporation for a more laid back sound.
