I was thinking that too, though I'm not sure I've ever heard it sung by a man. Maybe I was just visualizing sailors in ships.
Panzéra, Endréze, Bernac, Dens, Souzay, Van Dam. Yves Montand in a "weirdest ever" version. The song needs a solid grounding in the 2nd and 4th lines for the "slow surge" effect. Berganza and Von Stade among the mezzos.

edit (eejit?): + Leonard Warren, in Russia, 1958?!
