Haven't heard it in years but recall really liking Jimmy Buffett's take of the Kinks' Sunny Afternoon -- good one for him to cover, kinda fits in with the Margaritaville vibe in a way

Forgot the biggest mystery to me - Buffett.


Quite simple. People like to drink and party too much. The man is a genius; parlayed one song into a billion dollar empire.



he has a few big well known tunes
cheeseburger in paradise
it's 5 o' clock somewhere
margaritaville
come monday (imo his best song)


Come Monday is a beautiful tune. But come on, we all you he made his fortune off of one song.










well he did have a cheeseburger in paradise chain too so that made him tons of money. I have been to a margaritaville and every 10 seconds they play "it's 5 o'clock somewhere' so I'd say it's integral to his big business. he has a clothing line too based off of that song. sandals, bathing suits, etc. imo the man has written some great tunes and to make that much money off of that few hits he is a genius or someone around him is

I challenge anyone to get this - Mick Jagger and David Bowie Dancin In the Street:

I rest my case:

I love the music of the Stones but find Mick personally disgusting. Always have. There is something about his persona that just grosses me out. I also can't stand his voice.
