Song covers Jimmy could do in place of Brown Eyed Girl

Post by ShaunPunter »

I suggest "Thunder Island" by Jay Ferguson. It has a Buffett regae beat to it, and it talks about making love on Thunder Island, in place of BEG "making love in the green grass". Jimmy would rather take the beach anytime. :pirate:

Some people never find it, some only pretend
But me, I just want to live happily ever after
Every now and then...

ANYTHING! I am so tired of this "concert staple."

The best thing about the Tiki Time Tour was that it was the 1st time in years hat it wasn't played at every show. I only heard it at 1 of the 2 shows I was at.

I'd prefer one of his OWN song.
But if it was a cover song, how about the Beach Boys.

I always thought that "come a little bit closer" was a close cousin to "Cuban crime of Passion" , a natural for JB to do.

How about "The Downeaster Alexa" by Billy Joel. The song has that fishing captain with the blues feel to it.
Sunset Beach is my Margaritaville. Where there is endless beach, no time, and sunshine that seems to last forever. I know that Someday I Will.....Someday.

Always a highlight when Mr. Myers plays this tune. I think I'd go nuts if I heard Buffett play it.

You should see our sick dance move to the horn solos.

i'd love to see him replace brown eyed girl with Lawyers, Guns & Money. He rocked it in Aspen
Some of it's magic, some of it's tragic, but I had a good life all the way

Jimmy has done it before, and does an awesome job covering the Stones
