J is for Jimmy Buffett

JI admit it, I’m a Parrothead. Have been for probably a good 20 years since my friends Sarah and Eric introduced me to this “way of life”.  But as time has gone on, I have become a bit of a Jimmy Buffett snob. I’m sorry to say that I don’t necessarily want to spend big bucks to go to a concert and hear any of the following songs:



  • Fins
  • Cheeseburger in Paradise
  • Margaritaville
  • Volcano
  • Come Monday
  • Pencil Thin Mustache
  • Fruitcakes
  • Son of a Son of a Sailor
  • A Pirate Looks at 40
  • Grapefruit Juicyfruit
  • Why Don’t We Get Drunk
  • Changes in Latitude, Changes in Attitude
  • Southern Cross (cover)

These songs are on the Parrothead master list, though, and I’m probably in the minority for never wanting to hear any of these songs again. But here I now share with you my ultimate Jimmy Buffett playlist. These are the songs I would pay lots of money to hear at a concert, in no particular order:

  • I Wave Bye Bye
  • Tin Cup Chalice (my favorite Jimmy Buffett song)
  • School Boy Heart
  • Beyond the End
  • Burn That Bridge
  • Survive
  • Steamer
  • Bama Breeze
  • Brahma Fear
  • Cairo (cover)
  • Elvis Presley Blues
  • False Echoes
  • Happily Ever After
  • In the Shelter
  • Jamiaca Mistaica
  • Lucky Stars
  • Nautical Wheelers
  • Only Time Will Tell
  • Overkill
  • Take Another Road
  • Tryin’ to Reason with Hurricane Season

Someone get Buffett to do a show with this set list and I can die a happy woman!
