Songwriters take inspiration from all walks of life to compose great music that connects with people. Think of your favorite song. Is it about love and romance? Nature and adventure? Dreams and ambitions? All music has an emotional element that can set the tone for an experience or give meaning to our lives.
Music is a must for me every day, be it for background noise, to arouse motivation or to create the backdrop for special occasions and excursions. I’m a big fan of curating playlists and will sometimes fit a theme, like songs about boats and water, or a particular mood like happy dance music.
I happen to have a playlist of songs about boats and water, an essential soundtrack for your next boating day. If fishing songs are your thing, you can enjoy this playlist too or check out this ultimate summer fishing and boating playlist.
