Alright, I need your help.
I've been roped in to playing music on a charity cruise next week.
There may or may not be dancing, but most of it will be "incidental" music.
Well, why not a theme, heh?

Whatdya got?

Grouper - Heavy water / I'd rather be sleeping

This feeling doesnt go away
I feel it moving through me
I want a love I had inside
Want to feel it moving through me

In dreams I'm moving through heavy water the love is enormous its lifting me up
I'd rather be sleeping I'd rather fall in to tidal waves and go where the deepest currents go.

I opened a mirror up and saw a true love
I let it separate in two the water rising up over my head

In dreams I'm moving through heavy water the love is enormous its lifting me up
I'd rather be sleeping I'd rather fall in to tidal waves and go where the deepest currents go.

^Have this playing on a loop. It's all you need.

Also heartedly support the suggestion of Bobby Darrin's "Above the Sea". Perfect sea cruise music imho.

Groove Armada's "At the River" is still a good lazy jam despite its creators being huge cocks.

Surprised that (British) Sea Power never came up:

Fear of Drowning
Salty Water
Heavenly Waters

... and too many others to go on about, honestly. Their soundtrack for "From the Sea to the Land Beyond" is lovely.

all the love for British Sea Power (in combination with Disco Elysium OST (game).
it is really hard to get 'Whirling in Rags' out of my head.

meisenfek, Wednesday, 24 November 2021 05:15 (one week ago) link

...which is a good sign.
