Default Songs Related to Water.

Probably too early for this since it's obviouslystill winter but I thought I'd still create a thread reguarding songs about the water, sailing and stuff like that.

Here's one by Rod Stewart from 1975.

Here is a fine "water" song, written by Tony Hatch, who wrote Downtown among others. At the time this was a hit, he was in the army, National Service, when his royalties started pouring in he was the highest paid man in the British Army. John I don't think that lovely young lady has a tooth missing she is a female Terry-Thomas.


I hope this comes up for our North American friends

Try this fine song,

For the last week or so I have been suffering from s virulent head cold and have therefore been frequemtly and forcibly reminded that sources of flowing water are not confined to springs,rivers, the sea and rain
I can thus justify including this song by a whimsiical South African born British songwtiter
who had a masterly grasp of the possibilities of "Franglais"
L'anglais avec son sang froid (the Englishman with his usual bloody cold).
