What are your top 5 Jimmy Buffett songs?

Post by jonesbeach10 »

Taking an idea from sp's thread, what are your favorite Jimmy Buffett songs? For this, no covers. They must have been written by JB himself.

Me:
5. Boat Drinks (forgot about this one
4. Changes in Latitude Changes in Attitude
3. Last Mango in Paris
2. School Boy Heart
1. Weather is Here, Wish You Were Beautiful

Sometimes more than others,
we see who and what and where we are,
I'm just a one man band,
With my feet in the sand,
Tonight I just need my guitar

-Wino and I Know
-Last Mango in Paris
-Love and Luck
-Son of a Son of a Sailor
-Beach House on the Moon
