Default Island, Calypso, Music

We will be cruising in April. Was thinking a good Christmas gift to my husband would be to get a cd with some great cruising music such as Island, Calypso, Steele Drum, Reggae mixed with maybe a little Jimmy Buffet. This will prime us for our week in paradise and help to keep the winter blues from getting us down. Could anyone please suggest a great cd to me.

As a big parrothead myself I know that one of the greatest Jimmy Buffett songs that encapsles the feeling of a cruise or any vacation to the Caribbean is called "Holiday". Everytime I hear this song, it brightens up my day and all my stress just flies away. I can just close my eyes, and imagine myself in the caribbean anytime I want with this song. You can find it on a Jimmy Buffett cd called "Banana Wind". The entire cd is very very island influenced, as is most of Jimmy's music from the late 90's. When it comes to good calypso music, I couldn't really name a cd but if you go to a cd store most compillations of Calypso / Steel Drum music would probably be good.

Try Spyro Gyra, Morning Dance (album title). It's a little Jazzy, a little Steel Drums, a little tropical.

The new Taj Mahal might fit the mood too.

Get Buffetts live CD, "Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays". AWESOME CD and always reminds me of the warm carribean, even in the middle of winter

Try the Barefoot Man. He makes me think of the islands. He and Jimmy are the only ones we listen to when we go to the Abacos. Visit his webste at http://www.barefootman.com/

These are all great ideas--I will definitely be adding them to my Holiday list!
