Boats: Open Ocean Sailing

Radar Bros.: Open Ocean Sailing


This comes from the Radar Bros.'s 1999 album The Singing Hatchet. It's a great album—if you like this song then you'll like everything else on it too—yet I've never heard anything they've done since...

This is a nice tune; moodwise it certainly sounds like the kind of song (and album) you'd want to listen to on a relaxing day of sailing. Though the lyrics don't seem to be about sailing at all. Rather, it seems to be about a janitor in a factory, or something. The closest they get to references to water is in the chorus: "fight the waves of a slow production day."
