Sailing to a Sea Song

Since this post is being written in Philadelphia today, it only seems appropriate that our Sea Song of the Week is related to the City of Brotherly Love.

We once mentioned that former-Dire Straits frontman Mark Knopfler had a song called Sailing To Philadelphia, so we dug it up for this week's Sea Song pick.

The original release of the song featured James Taylor on vocals with Knopfler, but this video was recorded more recently without Taylor. Yes, we're vaguely aware that the song really doesn't have anything to do with sailing other than the title, but it is a great song to sail to.

For more Mark Knopfler, visit his official website or read him up on the Wikipedia.



  1. What a very mellow tune. It reminds me of sailing on smooth water at sunset.

  2. I love it, his vocals are definitely smooth sailing ;)

  3. Nice voice! very relaxing and calming song. Definitely you can sail away by listening to this. :)
