Thursday 13 - A Tribute to Jimmy Buffett

Thirteen Things about Michael

Thirteen of my favorite songs by the greatest combined singer/songwriter/author/pilot/environmentalist/former drug-smuggler of all time.

Tampico Trauma

Death of an Unpopular Poet (based on Hemingway)

The Weather Is Here, Wish You Were Beautiful

He Went to Paris

Pascagula Run

Frenchman For the Night

Mexico (remake of the James Taylor hit)

In The City

Ballad of Skip Wiley (based on Carl Hiassen's Tourist Season)

Little Miss Magic

Love in the Library

If the Phone Doesn't Ring, it's Me

Trip Around the Sun (with Martina McBride)

A fitting tribute. I love Buffet!

Jeff said...

I understand the Buffet love, and don't even scoff at folks going to his concerts in shorts and t-shirts despite it being 35 degrees, but I can't say I care either way. Don't have anything of his on the iPod.

I love love love his version of Mexico; and Love in the Library reminds me of when I lived in Japan (the album had just come out then).

I must comment on this as out of 4 comments, 2 arent Buffet fans. I wasnt a fan until I met my Michael. He didnt include my favorite Margaritaville..

Im surprised there are more anti-Jimmy fans besides Uncle Dennis, who calls Jimmy a manatee turd eater..My uncle is a professional fisherman

He went to Paris always make me weep - as does Biloxi.

Recently I commented on the problems with getting a license plate connected with an historic event; there's always some PC person who wants to take you on!

I don't own a car now, but if I did, Virginia had a Parrothead plate! Now THAT would bring smiles!

BTW. The Speedwell set out with the Mayflower, but they both had to return when the Speedwell proved unseaworthy; the Mayflower sailed alone. The Godspeed accompanied the Discovery and the llarge Susan Constant to Jamestown. (It's Jamestown's 400 birthday this year!
