Covid-19 lockdowns have brought all kinds of talent and creativity to light, but the crew of a Golden Ocean Group capesize bulker have to be up there.
Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement has released the highlights of its onboard karaoke contest, and there is something for everyone.
Whether you are a crooner to Diana Ross and Lionel Richie’s “Endless Love” — and enjoy singing along to both male and female parts. Who knew?
Or you like to get down on the dance floor in the galley with the ship’s master and show off your moves to that evergreen classic by the Village People, “YMCA”.
Health warning: while this version is performed wearing the customary uniforms, it also features a ladle and a rolling pin.
There is even a pro-quality version of “Warrior is a Child”, with Joel Polintang supplying the vocals and Stanley Ballespin on guitar showing just how good it can sound in the mess at Christmas. Kudos, guys.
But we are biased. Watch crew members of Golden Ocean’s 208,000-dwt Golden Champion (built 2019) shake their stuff on deck in full costume to Jennifer Lopez’s Latino rhythms in “Let’s Get Loud” — with a little help from a couple of copies of TradeWinds.
