    The problem with many modern songs is that, while good, they are songs meant for a band to play, not for a single lone singer. That's why sea shantys work well.

    Have you considered Tibetan Throat Singing? Excellent for one lone singer.

    MEN

    It's great to be on a ship with men
    And sail across the sea-o
    We don't know where we'll land or when
    But it's great to be with men
    'Cause men can sweat and men can stink
    And no one seems to care-o
    We'll throw the dishes in the sink
    And clog the sink with hair-o

    Men, men, men, it's a ship filled with men
    So batten down the ladies room,
    There's no one here but men
    There's men above, there's men below
    There's men down in the galley
    there's Mitch and Dave and Jim and Bob
    And one guy we call Sally

    Men, men, men, it's ship all filled with men
    You'll never have to lift the seat
    There's no one here but men
    We're men and friends until the end
    And none of us are missus
    At night we'll sleep in separate beds
    And blow each other kisses

    Men, men, men, it's a ship all filled with men
    So throw your rubbers overboard
    There's no one here but men

    Oddly enough, I have tried it, and I'm hoping to get better.

    Well - hey ya can't forget this guy!

    I'm Popeye the Sailor Man,
    I'm Popeye the Sailor Man.
    I'm strong to the finich
    Cause I eats me spinach.
    I'm Popeye the Sailor Man.

    I'm one tough Gazookus
    Which hates all Palookas
    Wot ain't on the up and square.
    I biffs 'em and buffs 'em
    And always out roughs 'em
    But none of 'em gets nowhere.

    If anyone dares to risk my "Fisk",
    It's "Boff" an' it's "Wham" un'erstan'?
    So keep "Good Be-hav-or"
    That's your one life saver
    With Popeye the Sailor Man.

    I'm Popeye the Sailor Man,
    I'm Popeye the Sailor Man.
    I'm strong to the finich
    Cause I eats me spinach.
    I'm Popeye the Sailor Man.
