Song of the Day - Day 798

Today's song is...

The Bloodboat

I am torn between laughing and crying when I listen to this song. The name "Bloodboat" and all the talk of cutlery make me giggle, but at the same time, the ship sinks. It's very sad. Hard to reconcile those things in my head. I usually don't care for songs with a plodding rhythm, just wanting them to hurry the heck up. But in this case the tempo suits the song. I can almost picture old sailors in a bar sitting around a fire with mugs of beer singing this ode to the lost ship. Almost.
