    When I lived on a sail boat we had weekly "field days" where we just cleaned the ship top to bottom. My watch was on the galley and we listen to Alice's Restaurant every week while cleaning

    also some great choices fluffer. i am (or was anyway) a big fan of the cult, you're spot on with the she sells sanctuary intro. i didn't think of it for my list (which i've been holding since shortly after i posted the thread).

    also love the TMC version of song to the siren (and the similar sounding i want to live)!


    and to everyone else, feel free to post in sections if you feel it's a struggle to come up with all of it at once, or if you just don't care about a section.
