The [Ninja Turtles] henchmen Bebop and Rocksteady have hijacked the musical genres for us just like the Lone Ranger hijacked the William Tell Overture for our parents.

Piratical Theme Music for the Day

I couldn't stop myself, and then Pinko went overboard with this...

And now, since I've just finished my last mix I want to make a Pirate/Nautical CD. This CD would clearly be awesome.

Three songs I imagine to be on it:
The Decemberists - The Mariner's Revenge
British Sea Power - Fear of Drowning
Modest Mouse - Ocean Breathes Salty

OK, so the real challenge of this list is limiting it to *absolute maximum* three songs by The Decemberists. Still, maybe we can come up with something good.

Ooh, Seven Seas is a great one.

I hve a feeling I will end up spending way too much time on this and having a CD I find hilarious and everyone else finds perplexing.

Oh well, I'll try and get that Zepplin one and it's hard to say no to Sebadoh.

Dude ... how can you not include Captain Hampton and the Midget Pirates - the Aquabats

Also, if you really wanted to be pirate-y you could include a local Chicago band Deal's Gone Bad.

Stephen Malkmus - The Hook (talks of being kidnapped by Turkish Pirates... don't know the rest of the song, but that seems significant to me.)
