    If you were to make an ultimate "dive mix" of songs that to you embody diving and the diving culture, what would be some of the artists, albums and specific songs you would add? The kind of stuff you and your buddy would play to pump yourselves up, or put yourself in the mood as you drive to your favorite dive site or to meet your charter for a sweet dive.

    Wow, that's a tough one!!!
    The only thing that comes to mind is "Hi, Calypso" by John Denver.
    But I guess there is the sound track from the James Bond movie "Thunderball".

    And also...

    Jethro Tull - Nothing is Easy

    "Nothing is easy, you'll find
    that the squeeze won't turn out so bad.
    Your fingers may freeze, worse things happen at sea,
    there's good times to be had."

    Dream Theater - Pull Me Under :D
    Dream Theater - Lines in the Sand
    Joe Jackson - Drowning :11:
    Van Halen - Light up the sky
    Rush - Jacob's Ladder ("...follow men's eyes as they look to the skies - the shifting shafts of shining weave the fabric of their dreams...." Kelp diving , baby!)
    Genesis - Mad Man Moon (chills...)

    Tons of instrumentals run through my head as I dive. I can't shake Gamma's Solar Heat or DT's Hell's Kitchen of late. There's lots of others.

    As you can tell, the generally acceptable water and boat music (Jack Johnson, Buffet, etc.) don't make the rotation. Just not my scene.

    Southern Cross - excellent boat music. THE best song they did at CES a couple of years ago. Unreal show. Stephen is a genius.

    I am haunted by music when I dive. Dive buddies are simply haunted by my incessent tapping and pounding on everything in sight...
