    Your favorite sea shanties?

    These were actually one of my favorite features in AC4. There's far too many options to make a proper poll, but which one(s) were the best in your opinion?

    I'm particularly fond of Runnin' Down to Cuba, Leave Her Johnny, Fish in the Sea, The Dead Horse, Lowlands Away, The Wild Goose, Drunken Sailor, and Whiskey Johnny.

    Loved the shanties! And I even found myself singing along to some as I went!
    I don't really have a favorite though, I pretty much like them all. There is however a shanty that I've started to dislike, simply because the crew would be singing that one EVERY SINGLE TIME I set sail for some reason. That would be Lowlands Away.

    Blasphemy! The vocals give me goosebumps. Do it Johnny Boker can drink damnation, hurts me damn listeners. As does Handy Me Boys.

    Yeah, Johnny Boker is one of the very few I don't like. Along with Paddy Doyle's Boots, but I think I just got sick of that one because it plays EVERY TIME you get in your harpooning boat
