Non-Titanic Songs that Remind You of Titanic

Forgot about this one. The first verse of Men, by Loudon Wainwright:-

When a ship is sinking and they lower the lifeboats
And hand out the life jackets, the men keep on their coats
The women and the children are the ones who must go first
And the men who try to save their skins are cowards and are cursed

Every man's a captain, men know how to drown
Man the lifeboats if there's room, otherwise go down

I'm surprised I'm contributing to this thread, but Moonlight Sonata has always reminded me of the Titanic. Maybe it's the darkness of the music, or maybe the tragedy that one naturally feels when listening to it. Either way, Moonlight Sonata reminds me much of the mighty Titanic.

I listen to this
haunting tune, to...how do I describe it... imagine the site of the wreck today, and all the souls that vanished that night, as if they are still there somewhere, waiting to be spoken to.
It kind of sounds crazy, but this music means a lot to me. It represents the mystical, beautiful, heart-aching, sad, poignant of the Titanic mystery...

Hello Svetlana,

That's a very nice piece of music. Who is the artist?

"Sail away" by Enya
"P---ing the Night Away" by I forget Who? Corny I know but when ever I hear that song I just start thinking of Men and women lounging on deck drinking Champagne as the ship sinks
Any Gaelic or Celtic Music reminds me of Titanic. Maybe because she was built in Belfast.
Enya's "Sail away" also calls to mind the Lusitania and many another shipwreck.

I agree, George, Orinoco Flow (Sail Away) does have that effect.

That it does Jason. "Steady As She Goes" by The Raconteurs reminds me of the Titanic Officers even though it has nothing to do with ships. Well maybe it's the Title.

I haven't heard of that one, George. But it sounds good just by the title.

You might hear it on the radio some time or might of heard it and not recognized it. "Steady As She Goes" came out a full year ago and the song was pretty popular for a while.

I'd have to say "Eurydice" and "Entre Ciel et Mer" by Sleepthief, or any number of songs by Amethystium. "Into the Blue" by Thea Gilmore is another good one. The title track from "Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness" by the Smashing Pumpkins is another one that evokes a sort of sentimental view of the event, almost like the last shared moment between a couple as they're separated at the lifeboats or a survivor looking back years later. It also almost sounds like something the band might have played that night in a way.
