So, I'm not sure what really is going on but lately I've been noticing a lot of 'sea shanty' covers coming up on my news feed. Yep, 'sea shanty'. Sea shanty? Well, I looked it up and yes 'Sea Shanty' is a type of traditional folk song that was once sung as a work song to accompany labor on board large merchant sailing vessels way back in the day. Whatever that means. Okay, I get it, sea shanty is like a pirate song. Lately, I've been seeing a lot of 'sea shanty' stuff come up and I'm like what the heck is going on with sea shanty. I've been seeing them on Tik Tok and other viral stuff.

I guess the thing to do is take any song and cover it with a shanty chant. It's your favorite songs sung like a pirate. Or, like a pirate song style type. I mean everything has been coming up sea shanty and people are really getting into it and I'm like wow I don't know if I can do this. I mean, I'm all for great songs and great cover songs but I don't think I'm good with sea shanty songs. LOL This morning on Leo and Rebecca In The Morning we played the cover of 'Baby Got Back' and you guessed it, sea shanty style. It was interesting but not as good as the original. So, if your wondering what's up with all the sea shanty stuff that's coming up on your newsfeed, it's because it's the latest thing and, hopefully this latest thing will go away soon. It's just as annoying as 'Talk Like a Pirate Day' don't you agree ?
