A very belated thank you, you guys! These are great!

I haven't got any drawings...i'm not very artistically talented. However, I did create an "Armitage Shanks memorial playlist" a couple of weeks ago in itunes. Does that count for anything?

Awesome! I'd love to see the track listings. In my head, Grandaddy's "Hewlitt's daughter" has been the unofficial shanks theme song since the turn of the century...

What shall we do with the drunken sailor?
What shall we do with the drunken sailor?
What shall we do with the drunken sailor?
Early in the morning

Put him in the scuppers with a hosepipe on him
Put him in the scuppers with a hosepipe on him
Put him in the scuppers with a hosepipe on him
Early in the morning

What shall we do with the drunken sailor?
What shall we do with the drunken sailor?
What shall we do with the drunken sailor?
Early in the morning

Put him in a longboat 'till he's sober
Put him in a longboat 'till he's sober
Put him in a longboat 'till he's sober
Early in the morning.

Tracks!
1. Mariner's Revenge Song-The Decemberists
2. Shipwrecked- The Gothic Archies
3. The Story of Benjamin Darling, Part One- State Radio
4. Sax Rohmer #1-The Mountain Goats (technically I think any Mountain Goats song would have worked)
5. Scenic World-Beirut
6. Salty Dog-Flogging Molly
7. Shiver Me Timbers-Tom Waits
8. Let Me Tell You About My Boat (From "The Life Aquatic" soundtrack)-Mark Mothersbaugh
9. Beyond the Sea-Django Reinhardt
10. Sailor and Widow-Keren Ann

There you have it! As with all playlists, a work in progress, but I think it's pretty representative so far.

That's awesome, Abby! Now if we can just tack on MrMonkey23's song as #11 (with Steven Stwalley singing, of course) I think it'll go platinum...
