Remittance Man.

ALL of his albums have LOTS of great songs (including and especially this one), and most of the songs I've chosen are ones I identify with.
So, for this album, although I like all the songs, Remittance Man is THE one I identify with.

Lage Nom Ai...wish he would bring this back as an opener.

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

this one was tough... Barometer is one of my favorite albums.....

1. Barefoot Children (I'm a weather geek and LOVE to stand outside in the rain)
2. Mexico (JT vs. JB.... there's two phenomenal artists)
3. Barometer Soup.... another song I would like to hear live

Yep

Right now this might be my favorite BUffett album. Barefoot Children is a total happy pill song.

OK, living in the Sierra's for most of my life, it only rains n the winter time, so Barefoot Children in the Sierra.... BIG NO NO :roll: :D Had to think of kids playing in the south during a summer rain. I'm a cultural infadel on this song :wink:

OK--Since there are no votes for "Blue Heaven Rendevous," I had to login and submit mine. I like the lazy, bluesy, sound.! As I said on another thread, if I ever could hear this song in concert, I would have achieved nirvana! I realize it probably will not happen, so I will have to settle for placing it on my own personal play list!
OK, that is my vote!

Jiimy Dreams. Barely over several other songs on here. Another great album. The only song I ever skip on this album is Skip Wiley. Blah! Love Barefoot also.
