Great Big Sea/YMMV
- Covered Up: A few of their more popular songs are like this. Run Runaway was originally recorded by Slade, When I'm Up (I Can't Get Down) was originally by Oysterband, and Beat The Drum was originally a Runrig song (called Pride of the Summer).
- Nightmare Fuel: "Safe Upon the Shore". When wishing for your true love's return, the sea does not apparently consider 'alive' a necessary condition to be 'safe'.
- Misattributed Song: Lots of East Coast music is mistaken for being played by GBS.
- Tear Jerker: "Yankee Sailor," just "Yankee Sailor"
- Also "Recruiting Sargeant" and "Safe Upon the Shore".
