Last week, with a Suez-choking €20 voucher redeemable at any Currys PC World store on offer, I asked you for your favourite song about ships or whose lyrics reference ships.
You answered in your dozens.
But there could be only one winner.
The Ship Song by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Capernosity & Function writes:
“No competition. This was the first dance at my wedding. I don’t normally go for ballads, but this was, and is, exceptional.”
Widow’s Walk by The Stars Of Heaven
Otis Blue writes:
‘Watching the Mail Boat and the harbour Madonna glow, I thought of the times I was glad to go…’
The Lonesome Boatman by Finbar Furey
“One of the most amazing, hauntingly beautiful songs ever. Hairs-on-your-neck time.”
Into The Mystic by Van Morrison
‘And when that foghorn blows
You know I will be coming home.’
“One of the greatest songs ever written.”
Nick says: Thanks all.
