Mermusic

I love songs about mermaids! I mean obviously! But honestly there aren't too many just about mermaids, but there are some that mention mermaids at least.

Here's some of my favorites:

Regina Spektor - Mermaid (it's perfect! She even talks about how her feet bleed a la Hans Christian Anderson's Little Mermaid)

Joni Mitchell - Carey 

Sedna - Heather Dale

Donovan - Atlantis and Celia of the Seals (about a selkie?)

Shel Silverstein - Mermaid (more of a poem, but it's about the mermaid problem)

Sinead Lohan - I am no Mermaid

Clancy Brothers - The Mermaid

Tori Amos - Silent All These Years

The Lonely Island - I'm on a Boat (T-Pain apparently had relations with a mermaid)

Flight of the Conchords - Mermaid


Did you notice the Monty Python coconuts (horses)?


And of course there are songs from Disney's Little Mermaid movies and broadway show, and old folk songs/sea shanty's that I have no real way of obtaining.

Besides mermaid songs, I also enjoy other sea-themed songs.

Into The Ocean- Blue October
Somewhere Beyond the Sea - Bobby Darin
Undersea Community - The Avalanches
La Mer - Nine Inch Nails
Rock Lobster - The B52's
Sea of Love - The Platters
Octopus' Garden and Yellow Submarine - The Beatles
Ocean Size - Jane’s Addiction
The Beautiful Briny Sea - from Bedknobs and Broomsticks
Island in the Sun - Weezer
Double-O Seafoam - the Neptunas
City by the Sea - Terminal
Santa Monica - Everclear
Gay Fish - Trey Parker

There are of course way more sea themed/beachy songs than mermaid ones, but there you go.
