Whether it’s the image of swimming against the current, sending out a line on a sunny afternoon, or frying up the latest catch, fish are chock full of musical inspiration. Musicians have been documenting the pleasures of fish and fish-related activities for a long time, and many of those songs ended up on this list of songs about fish. These fish songs are sure to hook you, line and sinker, but keep in mind that some of these songs only have the word fish in the title and are not actually about fish themselves.

“Too Many Fish in the Sea” was a hit Motown record by the Marvelettes. It was later covered by Phil Collins. “Saturday Night Fish Fry,” originally performed by Louis Jordan and the Tympany Five, is considered a proto-rock ‘n roll record, and was later cover by artists including B.B. King and Buddy Guy.

“Fish Taco” is an appropriate name for a surf guitar instrumental by Dick Dale. Dale’s hot riffs make it spicy! Which of these songs get your mouth watering? Vote for your favorites! If a song about fish you love isn’t on the list, please cast a line and add it.
