Dear Song List:
Last week I had the pleasure of sharing three of the greatest sailing songs ever put to pen and sonic beauty. But somehow I forgot to include my favorite and what I consider the greatest sailing song ever. It’s by David Gray, one of the most phenomenal songwriters of the last 10+ tens. And like so many others by him, it is definitely phenomenal and about a lot of things and not just sailing. Deep and emotional things they are that you just have to listen to…now…now…now.
And, as a bonus, I’ve included an equally phenomenal live performance of the artist singing Sail Away for your viewing as well as listening pleasure!
