aaarrrggghhhhh! and avast ye, mates. this brew of manly sounds absolutely floats my boat.
it's raucous, it's rude, it's really cool.
smiley
very good music to sail this fine song upon. hearing the different sailer's voices is wonderful, and the chorus sounds like 500 unruly, drunken men - just perfect.
filled with humor and good cheer - i really enjoyed this, you lot.

Loving this. This is not only a great folk song, but it's a delightful, light-hearted song that really sums up what this website it like: fun and infinitely rewarding. Love the music, love the ambiance your fellow collaborators have created with the pirate lore and instruments chosen.

Seriously, this is amazing. I haven't heard anything like this on iComp yet, and I'm glad I found this gem!

Wonderful playing, everyone...your performances really capture the essence of the pirate song genre! Very humorous and a nice, tongue-in-cheek tribute to iComp.
