Now back at my camper in the magical trailer park by the sea.. (one house up the street from me has a rebel flag nc combo if anyone wants to get political or something) Had a nice walk on the beach today.

Listening to some old japanase surf rock and Martin Denny while envisioning surf lines I will try tomorrow. Things like Martin Denny lounge music and old surf rock is what I associate with this area to get my vibe right.

When I walk out on the beach tomorrow I know there will be horrible music blasting from peoples devices under the pier, but this is usually paired with girls (19-40) in thongs. Zero complaints of this beach aside keep it even more clean garbage wise that it already is. Leave it like you saw it or better ffs.

Nah man there's Margaritaville and there's Cheeseburger in Paradise and then uh.. a song about gumbo and uh..

You really should. I have tried to finish that game 3 times and could not due to various reasons (besides the game being not easy) but if you liked county fairs and such as a kid and wondered what kind of dark stuff perhaps would go on as I did.. it is a wonderful setting for a text adventure.

When the camper is only used to power those strings of rainbow lights they only sell at camper stores and the stereo is blasting Jimmy Buffett that is absolutely surreal. Otherworldly. I can't name a single one of his songs, besides his most famous, but I can recognize his music from a mile away. That is what I imagine Heaven is like: drink in hand, shorts and crocs, walking towards the light with God blasting Jimmy Buffet.
See, this here is why I do not HATE Jimmy Buffett. There is something about going out to my trailer park at the coast, standing out on my porch in the evening, and hearing someone at least as drunk or more drunk than me blasting it that I am completely fine with. That's cool, man. Especially when it is followed up by House on Baker Street or some shit while you gaze out on the sunset over the saltwater. I just won't be the guy playing it from my camper; yet appreciative they are not blasting absolute garbage.

Also, I need a new string of lights for my shit!

He likes to... yeah, he likes to mix up the lyrics in the live versions. Get a little wacky with it.

Not a HUGE fan of the live versions.

I had a co-worker that used to play this version of margarittaville live with George Strait.

At one point it gets to the chorus and Buffett goes:

"and I know.. it's all GEORGE STRAIT'S fault!"

Wanted to shoot the boombox every time.

This song mentions Cincinnati and Nashville, the last two places I lived, and also has "fuck" in it. Five out of five:
I don't fuckin' believe it! He fuckin' took a goddam perfectly good fuckin' song and stuck a motherfuckin' "fuck" in it. An abso-fuckin'-lutely unnecessary and fuckin' useless "fuck" which is so fuckin' obvious they can't fuckin' play the fuckin' song on the fuckin' radio! What the fuck kind of bullshit is this? Don't you just fuckin hate it when fuckin' fucks fucking fuck up like this? Really, don't you fuckin agree, fuckin' people shouldn't fucking be fuckin' putttin' unnecessary fuck usage in things?

So let me know if I have this correct since I believe I just made a tiny breakthrough on my Jimmy Buffett understanding. The music presents itself somewhere between Caribbean-Bohemian and HillJack-Carefree which means it hits that commercial sweet spot for mass appeal but also means it doesn't get taken as seriously as it should considering how much wisdom and truth is underlying all of it?

Also, going off on a complete tangent, if you press the play button on all of the songs you posted here at once the sound it makes is absolutely terrifying. It must be what RR hears in his head all of the time?

It is! I made a pure CiP a couple weeks ago, muenster and all, and it was the best burger I'd had in ages. It was also the only actual food I'd eaten in months, but still.

I never thought that, I always knew he was saying muenster and thought it was just one of the wacky things he sang about...But now that I'm thinking about it now it doesn't sound wacky at all but pretty appetizing.

If I have one complaint about Jimmy, it is this:

Everyone thinks the lyrics to Cheeseburger go "medium rare with mustard'd be nice." But the line is "medium rare with muenster'd be nice." Now, you can go to one of the many "Margaritaville" restaurants scattered around the country, and under "Burgers", of course, the first item is "Cheeseburger in Paradise". With your choice of cheese.

Do you know which cheese is not available, though?

Mother fucking muenster. What the fuck, Jimbo?

In retrospect, The Weather is Here should probably have been Quietly Making Noise instead, due to the latter song's interesting musical nature, in which it quickly shifts styles right before the chorus. However, I just love it too much. "The beer is too cold, the daquiri's too fruitiful"? C'mon.

Thanks, Ben -- these are indeed some worthwhile songs, and I hadn't listened to most of them before. I think I was most surprised by the shout out to Ballyhoo in False Echoes. If both Roody Yogurt and Jimmy Buffett recommend it, I guess I really do have to play that freaking game.

I wouldn't say Jimmy's deep cuts are utterly far removed from his hits musically speaking...it's just that they have more intelligent lyrics and Jimmy lets himself experiment a bit more. It is testament to the perversity of my nature that I still prefer my favorite of his hits, Changes In Latitudes, Changes In Attitudes, to all of the thought-provoking, moving, and catchy tunes that Ben decided to share with us. I'm pretty sure I can't post videos here, but what the hell:

While we're talking Jimmy B, I would be curious to know if Paul prefers Fins or Cheeseburger in Paradise. Gang rape vs tasty food...that's got to be a tough choice for the Commander!

You know what? There is already too much strife in the world. So I'm just gonna leave that video there because it is funny and I am not going to take shots at Mr Buffet. He's a hardworking person that made a lot of music that made a lot of people happy, and then he has these DEEP CUTS. I like deep cuts. We did a deep cut thing with Crowded House a few months (?) ago and I believe your reply was, "I wouldn't immediately boil my radio if that came on." You didn't, like, post the video of Howard Stern making fun of the drummer in Crowded House when he killed himself, like Howard did.

This is a mellow thread now. This thread is now mellow.
