Seasteading Theme Song?
May 8, 2009 at 1:12 pm #914
Found this, thought it was hilarious. Will probably sing this on the first seastead.
Warning… RAP Music is often filled with profanity… this one definitely is.
I’m on a Boat (featuring T-Pain) by “The Lonely Island” on their debut album “Incredibad”. Andy Samberg from SNL is the Lead Singer.
If this song doesn’t make you smile, you’re going to need to loosen up ALOT for seastead life.

about the profanity! Really nice boat, good looking mermaid…May 17, 2009 at 5:31 pm #6013
I was considering posting this song here as well. Good laugh.
Also I recently came across a song by The Faint called “The Geeks were RIght” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TF297rN_8OY
Trippy video, but fun song. Pay attention to the line: “Predator skill, chemical wars… plastic islands at sea”May 17, 2009 at 10:14 pm #6019
Yeah, Liz and I were looking at that a couple of weeks ago. We decided we needed to get them to do a seastead cover once we build the first oneMay 18, 2009 at 4:11 am #6022
Yes, its a digital short from Saturday Night Live a while back.May 21, 2009 at 11:33 am #6053
The themesong of firefly would work, with only very minor modifications.
‘Take my love, take my land, take me where i cannot stand. i dont care, im still free, you cant take the seas from me’
The entire show has a very seasteady-morale to it.May 21, 2009 at 1:36 pm #6055
Absolutely LOVE Firefly!! It’s a shame we didn’t get more than one season and one movie from that little nugget of gold.

Didnt know there was a movie. Thanks for making me aware!May 21, 2009 at 3:00 pm #6060
There is no fate but what we make for ourselves. Each to his fate.May 21, 2009 at 6:50 pm #6072

I would go for Imagine/John Lennon, the one and only.May 22, 2009 at 12:03 am #6082
You missed one, IMO, out of your very exhaustive selection. Not that this should be the ‘theme song,’ just a great example of what we’re trying to escape.
Gallows Pole — Led ZepplinMay 22, 2009 at 7:12 am #6086
How about Come Sail Away by Styx? Seems like a no-brainer to me.
Im sailing away, set an open course for the virgin sea
Ive got to be free, free to face the life thats ahead of me
On board, Im the captain, so climb aboard
Well search for tomorrow on every shore
And Ill try, oh lord, Ill try, to carry on.
From The Grand Illusion.May 24, 2009 at 1:21 pm #6116
Can’t believe no-one’s championed Jimmy Buffett! Pirate Looks at 40 works for me.
