Re: Top Ten Overall Buffett Songs

A note on the above list I submitted: While I list O.P.H. as my second favorite and it definitely is because the lyrics mean so much to me, there are actually some songs below it on the list that I look forward to hearing even more than it at concerts- only because OPH is played at 80-90% of shows, ...

Re: Buffett Songs you just don't want to hear anymore....

COVID has changed my views on this stuff. Never wanted & needed a Buffett concert so badly! Totally agree. It really does give you a different perspective on things and makes you appreciate every single moment you are alive. A song like Lovely Cruise with the lyrics "these moments we're left with" ...

Re: Old Tour Merchandise

I'm usually only interested in purchasing merchandise for a concert I attended. Have to disagree here. As long as I really liked the setlist of that particular show/tour, the year was somehow significant to me and I also really like the t-shirt design and tour name that is on the shirt, I have no h...

Re: 2020 Baseball Thread

Baseball is finally back! Was nice to see the Red Sox put up 13 runs in their first game back behind closed doors, even if it was against Baltimore's pitching. Eovaldi was quoted as saying that the Sox could surprise this year despite losing Betts and others, and I agree. In a shortened season anyth...

Re: Jimmy is doing a "songs you don't know "home concert

Ironically within the last 2 weeks I just made a new JB "Playlist" on my I-pod which included cuts such as, Live versions of Death of an Unpopular Poet, Oysters & Pearls, In My Room and Dreamsicle. Plus studios of Lady I Can't Explain, Burn That Bridge, Presents to Send You, Don't Bug Me , Miss you...

Re: States Jimmy Hasn't Played

Bennington, VT 1977. Interesting. The book Jimmy Buffett and Philosophy (from the Pop Culture and Philosophy series- overall it isn't that great of a book but it does make some decent points and since it's the only book on the topic there is, I bought it and read it) claims that both Vermont the st...

Re: Caroline Jones

I'm not in the majority - I don't love her voice. :( When I watched the 2018 Fenway show on Marg TV that night, I was perfectly fine with her singing on Come Monday and Trip Around the Sun. There have been so many live renditions of Come Monday over the years that I thought adding a little differen...

Re: Sail On Charlie Daniels

Coincidentally, Buffett also released a new song with Devil in the title on his new album the same year that Charlie Daniels ended up passing away. I wonder if Daniels' classic was even somewhat a part of the inspiration for that title. Maybe if Buffett ends up playing that new song live during next...

Re: The Flip Side

That said, I agree on Cussin' Island. It's the Math Sux of this album. Musically it's better than Math Suks, but lyrically it's almost just as bad. In terms of the album overall, it's just about the best album we could ask for from him being this far into the future now. It isn't great compared to ...

Re: Buffett Songs you just don't want to hear anymore....

I thought I dodged a bullet at the Indy show when he didn't play BEG, but then he went and put it in the encore. That is at the top of my list that I wish he would drop. If you're attending a show in Indianapolis, expect to hear BEG. One of his most well known, and in my opinion best, live recordin...

Re: Buffett Songs you just don't want to hear anymore....

Margaritaville I can take it or leave it. With Mville, it is what it is. Not going to "fault" him for playing it at every show since for so many people it simply wouldn't be a show without it. Just like it wouldn't be a Neil Diamond concert for most people without Sweet Caroline (Neil of course can...

Re: How long have you been a Parrothead?

To me a Jimmy Buffett fan and parrothead are the same thing, especially when considering that "fan" is short for "fanatic" Agree. I consider anyone who is a diehard fan of his music to be a Parrothead, even if they do not actually engage in all the activities the "Parrothead lifestyle" supposedly e...

Re: What're Some Songs Jimmy Should Cover?

Sometimes a cover can be unique just based on the particular location he is playing. When he played in Bangor Maine back in 2016 for the first time ever, a cover of King of the Road by Roger Miller would have been fitting just as a one time thing since that song mentions Bangor in the lyrics and it'...

Re: “Rescheduled” Buffett

If there had been a Great Woods show this year, it would have been a good year to finally bring back Please Come To Boston since the Mville restaurant will be coming to Boston soon and this is the 20th anniversary of when he played that song at Mansfield in 2000 during the Tuesdays Thursdays and Sat...

Re: “Rescheduled” Buffett

There is 0% chance a concert venue like Great Woods in Mansfield, Ma will hold any concert this summer, which is a venue I’ve seen Buffett over 30 times (once during a Hurricane). The one "during a hurricane" was one of the 2008 Great Woods shows right? Always wondered since I have listened to/down...

Still hands down the best live version of BEG ever. Even though 20 more years have now slipped away since the '99 USWNT lifted the World Cup, it will always be a classic.
