Ship'scat Help: What's a good TEAM BUILDING song? (29) RE: Help: What's a good TEAM BUILDING song? 15 Oct 01

Team Building? The one and only purpose for ALL sea shantys - coordinating the efforts so management could hire smaller crews - and compete with steam on cost (but not reliability). It was sort of a John Henry thing for team sports like merchant sailing.

You might also look in to track lining hollers - same team aspect but without the competitive economics. Today tracks are aligned with computer-driven, laser-sighted, single-man gizmos.
