Thread Name: Sea Chanteys All Over The News [TikTok]
Subject: RE: Sea Chanteys All Over The News
James Phillips: it sounds like you are conflating shanties/chanteys/chanties and sea-songs generally, which is common among the uninitiated. A shanty/etc. is specifically a work-song; there are many other songs associated with the sea, all of which, along with shanties, can be called sea-songs' - or whatever name you'd like to give them.
