What's more, the man didn't speak a word of english: the text was written fonetically for him... But he was a great Belgian Folk-hero back in the sixties...

Not a shanty per se, but you can't beat "Hearts of Oak" for a rousing pre-battle sing-song or a wardroom dinner!

Good choices!
Rob, that too is one of my all-time favorites. That's a great cd too, with lots of other classics.

All are great. Had me stomping my feet but I have to say that Alex yours was awsome. I did Civ War reenacting years ago and we would sing that song after a few brews and have a great time doin it. Now I have to search for CD's.

Those are fun. My only exposure to shanties was listening to the guys who sang on schooner I sailed on one afternoon in Key West. I had left the barky before I remembered to buy his CD...:(

After checking out the videos on You Tube I got into my bagpipe music. When I listen to the pipes I can see why they marched in formation across No Mans Land in WWI to attack the Germans.

Just listened to the Drunken Sailor again. Reminds me of Golden Earing as they were great also.

Over the years I must have watched that movie more than five times. My favorite drinking song. Could listen to Mario Lanza all day.
