Default Cruise music list -what's your favorite

I am preparing my Ipod for our upcoming cruise, making sure to set a cruise theme playlist.
Looking for cruise theme songs I may have overlooked. You know, the ones that shout vacation, clear blue water etc.
Obviously I like Jimmy Buffet songs! Can someone expland this list, and yes I will listen to other artists ;-)
Here is my starting list:
Volcano
Coconut telegraph
Sail away
Margaritaville
Kokomo
Under the Boardwalk
Trying to Reason With Hurricaine Season
Cheeseburger in Paradise
It's 5'O'clock Somewhere
One Particular Harbor (MY FAV)
Southern Cross
Fins
Tin Cup Chalice
Hot Hot Hot

I love Bob Marley. Anything of his that you add to your list will scream vaction. I am a big reggae fan, but Bob Marley is universal in my opinion.

Just about anything by the beach boys.
We always make a cruise C.D. to play as we
leave the house for the long drive to the port.

Not sure the exact name, but my very, very favorite song has "I'd rather be sailing"...when we hear it off a cruise ship I get teary eyed.

"The Tide is High" by Blondie
"Reggae Night" by Jimmy Cliff
"Red Red Wine" by UB40 (or any of their other songs)

And you can't go wrong with Bob Marley. I especially like "Stir It Up" and "One Love" (I think that's what it's called).

How about 'Calm Seas and Prosperous Voyage' by Beethoven and the Overture of 'The Flying Dutchman' by Wagner? They are on my iPod, together with a good selection of seafaring shanties. I'll not try to hook it up to the TV set but use my earphones instead, so I won't bother anybody. If you see an old fogey sitting on his balcony, plugged in, and directing an imaginary orchestra, that's probably me, having, er, a whale of a time.
Hey, whatever floats your boat.

The entire score of Cole Porter's "Anything Goes," which of course takes place aboard the SS American, crossing the Atlantic.

The British National Theatre's production of it two years ago was suberb (saw it before a cruise from Dover), and the cast album (available online) is definitive show music, magnficently performed, if you like Porter.
