The Waterboys: Strange Boat

Updated: Apr 2, 2020

Strange Boat by The Waterboys (1988). Mike Scott and The Waterboys are one of my favorite UK folk rock groups. Fisherman's Blues is a great album. Scott's writing has a spiritual, often mystical quality. The music has a lyrical emotional aspect and combined with Scott's lyrics, I find this music energizing and thought provoking. I especially love "Strange Boat." It seems we as human beings often find ourselves in new situations and new phases of life that can feel very strange. So in strange times, we must carry strange cargo and climb strange ladders as we go about living. The song reminds me to carry on, even as we face strange seas we must sail.
