Drunken sailor all the way. Not just because of dishonored.

I would have loved to see some sort of dishonored easter egg in the game. Maybe a mission where you need to harpoon a whale and deliver whale oil to someone who looks strikingly like Piero.

Of course I just had to listen to that, lol.

I was subconsciously singing it while driving the other day. When I realized it, I just thought, "Man, I need to stop playing this game." :o

Sally Brown and Drunken Sailor are the two best shanties in my opinion.

Leave Her Johnny, Randy Dandy-O, Drunken Sailor, and another one I can't remember for some reason.

Shanties are definitely one of the best things about this game, but the guy who sings Randy Dando-O is especially good, and I love all of the songs where hes leading. That guy should've been a character in the game.

Randy Dandy, or Spanish ladies.

Spanish Ladies is good too, reminds me of Jaws :)


Seriously though, Runnin' Down to Cuba is my freaking jam. I love it so much, lol. Sometimes I skip through every single song til I find it :p

So far, Drunken Sailor. It says that I've collected Randy Dandy O but I haven't heard it yet.

Definitely Randy-Dandy-O. Hearing that shanty back months ago got me excited about shanties in the first place.

To all of the Drunken Sailor fans, I disagree. The lyrics and the shanty itself is awesome but the way the crew sing it is extremely out of tune and I subconsciously switch the shanty off. Shame though.

Haven't heard them all since I haven't played it yet, but I really really like Randy Dandy-O.

No competition.

I also love Fish in the Sea (aka: Fish of the Sea, Windy Weather). The chorus is very comradery-charged, and the harmony works well.

Fish in the Sea, definitely. Funny thing, my guys were singing it before I'd collected the actual paper for it. That happen to anyone else?

This one for me as well.

Funny thing is, I remember learning that song in an English class or something similar at school. o.O

Drunken Sailor is by far my favorite. I also enjoy Rio Grande as well.

Drunken Sailor, I've heard it a lot when I was younger, and then a bit more from the spoof of it in Dishonored.

The only one that affects me on an emotional and melodic level is Lowlands Away, especially sad to listen to in dull rainy weather, so that's my vote for the best.

The worst I'd say is Jonny Boker, boy am I sick of that repetitive ditty, and he sings it very tunelessly.

I can't vote for Drunken Sailor, heard it too many times as a kid, too much of a pirate cliché for me.

I've had Bully in the Alley in my head, ever since I visited the Cutty Sark the other day, and they had a group of guys singing shanties down in the hold...

Randy Dandy-O , Drunken Sailor , and Spanish Ladies!

I would seriously get upset if I would accidentally start a battle when these songs came on. haha. I just loved to sail and listen to them!

I wait until the songs are finished when I want to get in a fight, but I want being spotted by enemies and then the crew start whispering. :(

I love this sea shanty, Running Down To Cuba:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wsgsh0gv1OM
^^ This Sea Shanty makes me smile! - love this shanty the most!

I also like: Hi - Ho Come Roll Me Over, Drunken Sailor, Roll Boys Roll (Sally Brown), Leave Her Johnny, Paddy Doyle's Boots, Handy Me Boys & Good Morning Ladies All.

Billy Riley makes me laugh "Oh Billiy Riley..OH", love it! :)

Whiskey Johnny, also makes me laugh another one that I love.


---------------

Everyone says Randy Dandy-O that's not one I really liked, I skip that song if Edward's crew start singing.. it's my least favourite. IMO

That's what I would try to do ! Then I would run into the middle of a battle between the Spanish and English. Ha! or there would be a fort that I wasn't paying attention to that would start to attack! lol. (not all the time, but a few times this happened!)

D: Some people just want to watch the world burn! lol. Don't worry about it! if you didn't like it you didn't like it! Granted I don't feel the same but hey that's what an opinion is!

I love musicals and sea shanties remind me of musicals, like classic musicals maybe that's why I love them. :)
