Sloop John B, Kingston Trio
This song has a certain fascination for Caucasian folk and quasi-folk bands, for some reason.
Not just folk bands — the Beach Boys recorded a version, too.
“Sloop John B.” occupies roughly the same position in American music as “Whiskey in the Jar” does in Irish music. Don’t ask me why. I think they’re both silly, rather depressing songs.
