 Sea Shanties!


Sailors used to sing ‘shanties’ when they had long repetitive tasks that required a sustained rhythm. The song was used when the crew needed to raise and lower heavy sails or the ship's anchors. They even sang them when they were scrubbing the deck, climbing the rigging or repairing various parts of the ship.
