Worse Things Happen At Sea

Inspired by Frank Turner's blistering break-up song, 'Worse Things Happen At Sea' is a collection of songs about that harsh mistress that covers 2/3 of the Earth's surface: Billy Ocean. Oops, I meant The Ocean. But there are no shanties about friendly, rummed-up pirates; this playlist focuses on dark songs and dark seas.

Featuring The Pogues, Arcade Fire, Phillip Glass, Smashing Pumpkins, Explosions in the Sky, and more.
