Watching TikTok become obsessed with sea shanties is so weird. Like yea I’ve been listening to sea shanties for years… it’s not new. Welcome. Let me sit here and watch you take over and make sea shanties popular. And I selfishly don’t want them to? It’s like I’m huddled in the corner with my arms around my sea shanty playlist trying to keep these clock people from loving sea shanties more than I do. Like no, I been here for years back of. Don’t tell me how to shanty my sea. I’m the captain of this ship and you’re walking the plank. Bye.

Currently listening to that “sea shanties to fight God to” playlist that was going around a bit back, and it is a Whole Mood.

There are three categories of music

1)story telling

2) party music

3) gay yearning

And sea shanties connect them all

So, this random idea came to me, to make soaps, candles, and body butters based on sea shanties.

Possibly “sugar and tea and rum” playing on a loop in my head has done some kind of irreparable damage.

Anyway, here’s my first draft of thoughts. Some of these aren’t really as balanced as I’d like. And full disclosure, I’m no expert on mixing fragrances. I’ve also not actually smelled all of these oils, I just know they’re all available from a specific company on Amazon, so… easy to get hold of.

Asking the real questions:

The boyfriend and I are arguing over sea shanties. All he said was “I want to listen to sea shanties.” I put on a playlist I have of acapella Viking chants AND sea shanties. He then got exasperated because “Viking chants are not sea shanties. Pirates need to sing them. They’re from the Caribbean.”

We then spent time at a world map with me pointing out that there were and are pirates in all areas of the globe and that Vikings were literal pillagers and thus pirates from the north. Viking chants should count and be included! His rebuttal was that “Viking chants are dark and sad.” SO ARE SEA SHANTIES! They’re literally about dying at sea without women or love. But he adds “Yeah but it was warm, so they were happy about it.”

So… Viking chants? Should they be considered sea shanties?
