These are 3 more of the many favorite Jimmy Buffett songs of mine. I'm out of time to post any writing tonight.
Mañana is from the album Son of a Son of a Sailor. Many of the lyric lines are really dates, so the song is like an inside joke from mid-late 1970s America. A stand-out on that score is the bit about Steve Martin. Anyone know what "getting small" is?* Let's reggae, Reefers!! That'd be the Coral Reefer Band.
Speaking of the 70's, the somewhatt obscure movie FM (1978) was great for those into music and broadcasting. It had concert appearances from a number of great musicians of the era - one I remember the most was Linda Ronstadt with her version of the Rolling Stones' Tumbling Dice. Here's Jimmy Buffett in the movie doing Livingston Saturday Night, also from Son of a Son of a Sailor. He seems pretty wired here and nothing like laid back sailor of the islands. Different drugs? (Well, it was the '70's.)
Finally, from his prior and probably best album Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes, Jimmy Buffett sings In the Shelter. It's more mellow.
Peak Stupidity has got posts backed up like mad around here. We'll have more info from the China trip - not all is bright and shiny - a continuation of that fisking of the words of the idiotic Lenin (the Russian one), more on the problems, or lack thereof, of the "fertility crisis". and then back to the stupidity of the here and now in America. Thanks for reading, writing, and listening too! Happy Sunday, all.
