Steamboat music

Post by cyberbadger » Fri Oct 06, 2017 1:41 am

What is/would be on a music mix-tape for your Steamboat?

Examples:
A) Song about a steamship:
RMS Segwun
"The Segwun is Steaming Again"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NyJVytmu3mc


B) Song where the engine is one of the musicians
S/S Östersund
"Boiler Room Blues" AKA "1903 Steam Engine Blues - Resonator mandolin!!"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=21rJ30Y-sZg


C) A Song about Boats
Wind in the Willows: Messing Around in Boats
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2m_GaoSU85E


Two songs on my mixtape for Nyitra:
1) Sunburst Rag by James Scott
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-u3nja4OGE


2)The Legend Zelda: Wind Waker - Tetra's Pirate ship
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y60GrrS8AkA


Heard anything vaguely related to steam or boats that comes to mind, or something that you either listen to in or outside of your boat?

Caruso! But it must be on a ghramaphone ala "Fitz Caraldo"

Actually I find it strange when people play music on their steamboats... the music is the engine and associated machinery. Unless they're incoperating it like that one with the mandolin

They play this on board the SS Badger, about Ludington Carferries.

How could it we miss the theme song for those with paddle steamers???

Proud Mary, by Creedence Clearwater Revival, although made most famous by

Tina Turner
