This was hard because so many of the songs are different. I picked Fins because of the memory of hearing it out live, and the way the "Jaws" theme starts, and 25,000 people get their hands up, and we start going to the left......and to the right.....left...right...left..right..left.right.leftrightleftrightleftright and he calls out what town he's in and the drums kick in and it's just*BOOM* :D :D
Take me for what I am, a star newly emerging.
I accept the new found man, and I set the twilight reeling.

Another toughie. I had to use a NINE-sided coin to determine what my second favorite is on this one, as it's ALSO a perfect album, but any sailor who actually LISTENS to the words of "Treat Her Like A Lady" cannot help but absoultely LOVE this gem of a song.
I did and I do.

That's actually a really good description :lol: :D :D :D


Oh and waitress, I need two more...

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

I picked Dreamsicle when I meant Survive, but I'll vote only once. Survive because when I am feeling down, I just repeat to myself, Survive (survive), stay alive. Yes I know it's about a woman, but I'm allowed to use the words out of context.

Boat Drinks.....because I live in a wintery place and I KNOW that cabin fever feeling only too well......and because this song captures the FUN of Buffett music so well!

Sending The Old Man Home always makes me think of MY DAD and the Old Officer's Club where I volunteer and some great parties we had there.

There's a lot of great songs on here but Treat Her Like A Lady, blows away every other song.

I remember the first time I heard it. It was off the box set, about the only CD's we had at the time, and it just grabbed me and made me even more of a fan of Buffett.

Dreamsicle. One of first Buffett concerts I ever went to he ended by coming out alone and singing this song and it was brilliant.

Ironically I find "Treat Her Like a Lady" far down the list, but thats why Jimmy Buffett appeals to so many!!!
