That's not a Buffett song, it's by August Campbell and the Spur of the Moment Band

Barometer Soup
Banana Wind (I just love this song)
Tampico Trauma
Door Nr 3

They may change from day to day but even when Margaritaville comes on the radio it is always a treat to listen to.

My top songs are everything on Banana Wind right now.

I have been playing this CD constantly in my car for weeks now.

I like to make up hand motions and do them while driving to "I've got a School Boy Heart, Novelist Eye, Stout Sailor's Legs and a License to Fly."
Other drivers must think i've lost it, especially when it gets to the part about the tongue in the cheek of my Gulf Coastal Mouth. :P
J/K (Only my son thinks I've lost it.) :lol:

Anyone seen the band A1A and that gal who does hand motions to all of JB's songs? I want her job!!!

Here are my favorite sing-along-at-the-top-of-your-lungs songs from Banana Wind:
Only Time Will Tell
Jamaica Mistaka
School Boy Heart
Holiday
Bob Roberts Society Band
Overkill
Desdemonas Building A Rocket Ship
Mental Floss
Cultural Infidel
Happily Ever After
False Echoes
Treetop Flyer

Except for False Echoes, which made me cry, going yesterday to pick up my 89-year-old mom and bring her back home to me. Growing older is so sad! :cry:
Jimmy is so sensitive, so sweet, so smart & crazy and so much fun!!! Every song transports me. :D

yeah, i actually got to hang out with the a1a band after their first set at a minor league baseball game in rome, ga. jeff pike, the lead singer, asked me to mix him one of whatever i was drinking (which was spiced rum and coke with some lime in it) while he was onstage and then came to my tailgate area for another one after his set... he was impressed with my mixing abilities and asked what my secret was...all i could come up with was that i had mixed it with my finger due to my lost drink shaker ( it was my own damn fault), so in his set after the game he improvised my name into a few of the songs...quite a night.

i got so caught up in telling my a1a story that i forgot to post my top 5

1. Pirate looks at 40
2. God's own drunk
3. Woman going crazy on caroline street
4. Trying to reason with hurricane season
5. I have found me a home


those are my favorites right now, but they seem to change with the weather so for the sake of all those in florida, hopefully #4 will drop off the list soon

Worst song

By far the worst song ever: Mental Floss: However with all the songs JB has put out even a top ten list of bad songs is still pretty good!

Don't be. I actually LIKE that song. I seem to have a knack of going against the grain here. (UN-intentionally, of course, but remember who my second favorite baseball team is, and where my political affiliations lie).
