“Sloop John B.”

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.
