My vote is for Fruitcakes.
Boy thats a tough one my all time fav is his first hit Please come to Boston or something like that. Of course there is my favorite drinking song "Why don't we get drunk and screw" he has so many great songs It is hard to pick a favorite.
Of cours I also forgot "The Great Filling Station Holdup"
"I don't know the reason
I stay here all season
With nothing to show but this brand new tattoo.
It's a real beauty
A Mexican cutie--
How it got here I haven't a clue."
Actually, I'm fond of many of his songs. Volcano, Chages in Lattitudes, Changes in Attitudes, Great Heart, Prince of Tides...Well, I could name too many.
You're east of East St. Louis
And the wind is making speeches.
"Cheeseburger in Paradise" has been stuck in my head for at least a week.
I don't think it's possible to pick one as "the best" since they represent a body of work that are basically chapters in a book that is still being written.
Of all his songs, the only one I don't look forward to when it comes up in the rotation is "Math Sucks".
Changes in Latitudes is good..Having lived in Florida for 14 years, I liked Trying to0" Reason with Hurricane Season.". Can't find my Buffet albums.. Was it not just called "Hurricane."
Livingston Saturday Night....also like God's Own Drunk
It's no matter, no distance, it's the ride.....Stephen Stills...Throughfare Gap
So many choices, so little time.
I'd have to say A Pirate looks at 40 is my all time
favourite, but then there's Miss You So Badly great party song, great lyrics and imagery. Also like Remittance Man I also love his cover
of [u]She's Got You[/] off of Fruitcakes.
Are you sure I have to pick just one?
Son of a Son of a Sailor is one of my fav's.
Don't know the spelling, but Chauson por le petite enfant, is a great one as well!
I also like the one about his daughter, Delaney Talks to Statues or something to that effect.
My imagination goes wild of a thin very attractive brunette when I hear, Love in the Library.
"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, "WOW, What a Ride!" - unknown
"Your Bike Sucks" - Sky Yaeger
Cheeseburger in Paradise is my fave.
Any that he doesn't sing on.
Nothing personal... always thought Buffet was the musical equal to having my prostate examined by a physican.
You know, I am burnt out on Bubba this year. This is the first time in a long time that we didn't go to the concert.
Oh, my favorites are old school:
1. My head hurts, my feet stink, and I don't love Jesus
