Favorite Songs About the Sea

I got a text message yesterday from my friend Joe Aiello of Aiello's Restaurant.

He said he was on a whale watching boat going out to sea in San Diego, and he was looking for me in my boat.   I sadly had to tell him, my new boat is still in transit and has not arrived yet.

I wished he and Myra and family well in their maritime adventure.  

But I got to thinking, isn't it just fascinating how we love the sea.  


“We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea - whether it is to sail or to watch it - we are going back from whence we came."
John F. Kennedy


When it's time to renew - we (Arizonans) head west to San Diego.  So here I am landlocked, a landlubber, yearning to be out on the ocean.  And my thought led to my favorite song about the sea.  The first one that jumped into my mind was "Beyond The Sea" by Bobby Darin.  And can't forget the Beach Boys!  What's your favorite?

I found this really cool web-site that lists "The 10 Best Songs About the Sea." 


Have fun!
