(Cruising or sailing-related) Music Trivia!!

Recommended Posts

A bit harder one...

 

"Baby let's cruise
Away from here
Don't be confused
The way is clear

And if you want it, you got it forever
This is not a one night stand...
Baby, yeah
So, let the music take your mind
Just release and you will find

You're gonna fly away
Glad you're goin' my way
I love it when we're cruisin' together
Music is played for love
Cruisin' is made for love
I love it when we're cruisin' together"

Here's a natural to go with your breakfast Bloody Mary:

"Set a course for adventure

your mind on a new romance.

Love won't hurt anymore

it's an open smile on a friendly shore"..........🍹

wow....great thinking up that one!  While we're doing Jaws..  how about:

 

Show me the way to go home,  
I'm tired and I want to go to bed,  
Cos I had a little drink about an hour ago,  
And it's gone right to me head,  
No matter where I roam,  
On land or sea or foam,  
You will always hear me singing this song,  
Show me the way to go home. 

 

LOL..they really get into it.....OK now this movie is stuck in my head too!

OK...a bit more sedate...

An oldie...the 3 dead give-away (deleted) lyrics where the lines are....

 

___________________________
Somewhere waiting for me
My lover stands on golden sands
And watches the ships that go sailin'
 
_____________________________
She's there watching for me
If I could fly like birds on high
Then straight to her arms
I'd go sailing
It's far beyond the stars
It's near beyond the moon
I know beyond a doubt
My heart will lead me there soon
We'll meet beyond the shore
We'll kiss just as before
______________________________
And never again I'll go sailing

this isn’t just an oldie, it’s ancient. 

 

LOL..just for that, next time I might trot out "Mack the Knife"......Watch that "ancient" stuff anyway  - released in 1958 - I was around already 😏   Actually, I see there WAS an earlier version.

I've already gathered that much.... 😁

 

Anyway, let's move on and delve into a slightly different genre...

 

"Down here all the fish is happy
As off through the waves they roll
The fish on the land ain't happy
They sad 'cause they in their bowl
But fish in the bowl is lucky
They in for a worser fate
One day when the boss get hungry
Guess who's gon' be on the plate?"

“And if I

Dylan....of course. 
like a lot of us waiting for his ship to come in. 
 

This one gives me hope for the future ...........


And if I had a boat
I'd go out on the ocean
And if I had a pony
I'd ride him on my boat
And we could all together
Go out on the ocean
I said me upon my pony on my boat“

 

“Now if I were Roy Rogers
I'd sure enough be single
I couldn't bring myself to marrying old Dale
It'd just be me and Trigger
We'd go ridin' through them movies
And we'd buy a boat and on the sea we'd sail“
 
“And if I had a boat
I'd go out on the ocean
And if I had a pony
I'd ride him on my boat
And we could all together
Go out on the ocean
I said me upon my pony on my boat”
 
“And now the mystery masked man was smart
He got himself a Tonto
'Cause Tonto did the dirty work for free
But Tonto he was smarter
And one day said, "Kemo sabe
Kiss my a•• I bought a boat
I'm going out to sea”
 
“And if I had a boat
I'd go out on the ocean
And if I had a pony
I'd ride him on my boat
And we could all together
Go out on the ocean
Said me upon my pony on my boat”
 
“And if I were like lightning
I wouldn't need no sneakers
Well I'd come and go whenever I would please
And I'd scare 'em by the shade tree
And I'd scare 'em by the light pole
But I would not scare my pony 
On my boat out on the sea”
 
“And if I had a boat
I'd go out on the ocean
And if I had a pony
I'd ride him on my boat
And we could all together
Go out on the ocean
I said me upon my pony on my boat
I said me upon my pony on my boat“

I love this one, too...Lyle Lovett.

I have to think I heard that on an old Bob Dylan album...  Can't wait for Andy (Heidi13) to pop in with some obscure Scottish chantey that no one else has ever heard.  Fun thread On The Journey.

 

Enjoyed reading the thread, but not much help with contributions, as I can never remember the words to songs. If truth be known, I usually can't hear the words. 🙁 Too many hours on the Bridge with white noise.

YES!

 

In these times, This one may ring true to some;

 

“If there’s  one thing in my life that's missing
It's the time that I spend alone
Sailing on the cool and bright clear water“
 
“Lots of those friendly people
They're showing me ways to go
But I never want to lose their inspiration“
 
“Time for a cool change
I know that it's time for a cool change
Now that my life is so prearranged
I know that it's time for a cool change“
 
“Well, I was born in the sign of water
And it's there that I feel my best
The albatross and the whales
They are my brothers“
 
“It's kind of a special feeling
When you're out on the sea alone
Staring at the full moon like a lover”
 
“Time for a cool change
I know that it's time for a cool change
Now that my life is so prearranged
I know that it's time for a cool change”
