Songs About Dolphins to Soothe and Inspire You

Updated on June 8, 2014

There's a Dolphin Song For Everyone!

My list of songs about dolphins was a fun one to put together. But it was a lesson in awareness too! Little did I know that 20,000 of these awesome creatures are slaughtered each year off the coast of Japan. That's a pity because dolphins symbolize freedom, harmony, amity and grace.

On this page, you'll find a range of music to listen to. The soothing instrumentals are my favorites because they play to the magical aura of dolphins. Songs like "Safe" and "Will You Be There?", on the other hand, remind us of the importance of protecting these animals from total annihilation. For those who are romantics, there's one for you too!

I'd like to welcome you with a beautiful dreamy tune entitled "The Dream of the Dolphin" by Enigma. It's a fascinating instrumental that never fails to mesmerise me. Dolphins are magical creatures and their adorable playful nature makes me want to swim with them forever. This is one of those tunes that you can't stop listening to. I often find myself humming it when I'm sitting around doing nothing. Ever wondered about what dolphins dream of?

"The Dream of the Dolphin" - Enigma

This beautiful track is at the top of my list of music to meditate to. It gives me goosebumps! If you've been looking for a way to ease the tension and regain focus, play this loud. You'll be a 'sea of calm' in no time. I almost always listen to this before I sleep and the best part is, I never toss and turn. Relaxation music doesn't get any better than this and it's only one of many tracks available out there. Music and spirituality often go hand in hand.

When the going gets tough, I relax by listening to the sounds of nature. I've tried wolves, birds, rain and crickets but none are as effective as the sounds from the deep. The CD runs for an hour and is available as Mp3 too. It's healing music and I'm sure you'll love it. There's a spiritual undercurrent in this that I sometimes miss on the other forms of relaxation music. Share it friends too, the world can be a very difficult place.


A list of songs about dolphins would be incomplete without romance. Listen to this beautiful song from the 1957 movie, 'Boy on a Dolphin'. It's as fresh as the sweet-smelling sea breeze in Greece.

David Bowie

While "Heroes" is not a song about dolphins, they are mentioned in the lyrics. This is a version by the Wallflowers. The original version was recorded by David Bowie in 1977.

Dolphin Songs That Help Spread Awareness

I'm glad I found this song on YouTube. The name of the track is "The promise (the dolphin song)" by Olivia Newton John. It is taken from the 1981 album Physical. Listen to the lyrics; it captures the nature of dolphins beautifully. The recording isn't the best but that's okay, I'm glad I came across it. If you have songs about dolphins to recommend, please don't hesitate to leave me a comment. The idea is to list as many tracks as possible because there is something about songs about dolphins that lifts the soul and spirit. If you have a song to recommend or suggest, feel free to leave me a comment in the 'guestbook' below and I'll be happy to pick it up from there.

"The Promise (The Dolphin Song)" - A Beautiful Track by the One and Only Olivia Newton John

Listen to the lyrics and you'll know why these creatures are so special.

The BBC Used it For a Campaign

The ending song from Dolphin Tale was the perfect close to a movie that touched my heart. These magical creatures need us NOW, more than ever before. Winter may have found a friend in the 11-year old boy who rescued her, but many like her, succumb to persecution. Can we commit to keeping them 'safe'? Listen to this song and decide.

Did You Know?

Orcas Are Dolphins!

If you're an MJ fan, you've probably heard this; if you haven't, I'm sure you'll love it. The song was written for a movie named "Free Willy" - a heart-warming story about a boy and the friendship he shared with a captive orca. Passionate, emotive and the stuff of legend, this is one of those songs that I can listen to over and over again.

Here's a Song From "Free Willy" - "Will You Be There" is a Favorite Michael Jackson Classic

I don't know what the lyrics to their songs mean, but they're the singing legends of the sea! Here's a band that knows how to make a splash.

Dolphins Singing!

Songs About Everything

This page was part of a bigger quest that I have begun to undertake. Eventually, I'd like to have a whole collection of songs about everything, from rainbows to thunder, birds to tigers and on and on. I've already got a few of them started and would gladly welcome you there. Music will al;ways be a part of me and I'm thrilled that I get to share it with the world. I have a special fondness for soundtracks too and have quite a few pages featuring them.

      Of course you know that I would have to visit here. I love everything to do with the water (except being on top of it lol). I admire and adore dolphins. They are magnificent.
