Sailing Music Playlist - Songs to play when sailing

If you're planning a charter, one thing you want to have are great tunes! Here is a playlist we compiled when chartering in the BVI years ago, and we've been adding to it since.  Yes, there are a lot of classic rock/old fart songs, but they all sound great on the water - nearly 8 hours worth! Please feel free to suggest others below and we'll add them!
