    I have always loved this melody. In fact I used to hum it to my two youngest daughters when they were two, as a lullaby.

    Children's music! The album combines children singing mostly on key with recorded animal sounds and is entirely about the oceans and sea life. I grew up listening to this album on cassette and I adored it. I'm so happy that it is still around and easily available. I might even buy it on itunes.

    I don't have a mermaid playlist, but I'm looking for good songs to sing while mermaiding, like when taking a break but still tailed. I definitely like the idea of using sea songs/shanties heavily but I'm sad to admit I don't know many. So far all I've got are "Spanish Ladies," "What Do You Do With A Drunken Sailor" and "The Captain's Mate" (thank you Ren Faire and elementary school choir.) I'd like to avoid super depressing stuff like ships sinking and everyone drowning. Do not talk to me about "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitgerald," please, it seriously gives me the creeps.

    I suppose this could count as well, sort of. "The Last Saskatchewan Pirate" by the Arrogant Worms. It is fun and easy to sing, more for an adult audience simply because most of the subject matter will be lost on kids. I should know, I first heard it as a kid and all I got out of it was yay pirates!

    I usually sing "Johnny was a Shoemaker." Its nautical, its from a female point of view, and its clean!

    Either that or I sing in Gaelic.

    I sometimes hum the Beer Song underwater... Does that count?

    And I make up dirty sea shanties. Oh and, "She sailed away on sunny summer's day on the back of a crocodile..." I don't know the title but I hum that too!

    Found this artist a few months ago. They are from Sweden and I found this music to be absolutely gorgeous. I love the melodies and the vocals are very beautiful and a bit difficult to understand. It's easy for me to imagine it as some sort of mermaid language

    Below are a few of my favorites but they have several other albums, the videos below are from the most recent album entitled Blue

    An older song, it's from 2004. I hear mer in this. Watching Over You by Seabound

    From the ice, the blinding white
    A schooner's gliding through the night
    Angry sea, we sail alone
    At last I'm going home

    I'm going home

    Phantoms lured me off my course
    Tried to kill the man I was
    You sent a guiding light
    Lead me to my lavish bride

    To the crag that braves the tide
    To the beacon in the night
    I trust in you (and)
    I'm watching over you
    To the souls that crouch in fear
    To the ghosts that disappear
    I trust in you (and)
    I'm watching over you

    To the crag that braves the tide
    To the beacon in the night
    I trust in you (and)
    I'm watching over you
    To the souls that crouch in fear
    Your ghosts will disappear
    I trust in you (and)
    I'm watching over you

    Seasons change, this time for good
    Be this message understood
    You're the house I occupy
    You're the only reason why

    I'm still alive

    Yes!! I too, love Jonna Lee, and have been listening to her music for the past two years or so.
    The Blue album has sort of become the soundtrack of my personal mermaid journey, and daily daydreaming (for lack of a better description).
    "Fountain" is my theme song.

    I listen to "I love you" - said the whale.
    the band is actually called "said the whale"

    now ow whenever I hear the song I imagine a whale singing "you're kinda sad but I love you"

    So glad I found this thread! Hope it's okay if I post... it is a sticky, afterall. :3

    My contribution:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bN9geG7drp4

    The Deep by Data Romance

    To me the song sounds very dark and reminds me of the ocean at night, or being (you guessed it) in very deep water. There are very few lyrics which I think suits creatures who spend most of their time under the waves and probably wouldn't speak much. Also, the lyric "This would be a pure disaster, life spent on the surface for you. I need the waves, the deep escape..." definitely speaks to my mersona, whose loyalty is to the sea alone and would break hearts at the drop of a shell when she hears the waves calling.

    Hope you guys like it!

    There is a beautiful cd called Journey To Atlantis from Kevin Kendle and Llewellyn, it is sort of new age music but so mysterious, magical and simply wonderfull.
    I found the album on youtube just now so i can share it with you.
    The album starts at 1 hour (there is a reiki cd prior) and if you scroll to 1 hour and 34 minutes and wait about 30 seconds, then my favourite song of the cd starts.
    I used that music for my 1 and only mermaid gig i did years ago

    I love this enough that I logged in to say so (I rarely look at forums anymore, and I don't bother logging in, usually, if I do). It's a beautiful song, and I hadn't heard it until now.

    Also, anyone can post in this thread!

    I know a metal song may seem a bit strange for a merman but it seems to fit for me.

    I finally got around to listening to some of this music on this thread. I LOVE it! I then remembered a song that I first heard on a Kingdom of Hearts commercial a few years ago. Here it is
    Passion (Single Version) by Utada Hikaru.

    Not at all. Every mer is their own mer, and there is no one way to be, or one music to listen to. This thread is proof of that.

    The woman who is known as the lead singer for darkwave band Faith and the Muse has the most lovely solo projects out... this one is called Naiades. I'm in love with the whole thing, but here is one of the most beautiful songs.



    Lyrics below. (Incidentally, they remind me of the mermaids I write.)

    I was sinking.
    Long have I dwelt o'er the
    Realm of the Drowning Man
    Still I was empty...
    Long have they been dashed against my shores
    Still I was waiting...
    And to my wat'ry depths they sadly sank
    And I was sinking.
    I put them all to sleep
    One touch of my voice
    Then dead at my feet
    It was nothing...
    In the early hours
    A grey dawn misty morn
    The turning tide
    Surveyed with flooding eyes
    The sky breaking through
    The morning silent
    And yet I hear the sound
    The faintest beat
    Of heart that sank itself
    Beneath my waves
    There was something...
    I realize I'm nothing like my kind
    Your heart is still beating
    Keep your heart alive I'm almost there
    Keep your heart alive and I'll bring you home
    You better sing out strong
    You've got a voice that melts the glaciers down.
    Keep your heart alive I'm almost there
    Keep yourself alive and I'll bring you home

    These songs make me think about mermaids I guess (especially the clams casino one)
