EDITORS’ NOTES

Songs You Know By Heart not only captures Jimmy Buffett's heyday of hits up to 1985, but it's also the compilation where vestiges of Buffett's former country-toned aspirations can be heard. Not everything here sounds rooted in country, of course. "Cheeseburger In Paradise" and the cowbell heavy "Fins" stand their ground on their own playful sound, and "Why Don't We Get Drunk" is honky-tonk right down to the title.

This whole album is nothing but good songs. That is really all that you can say althought it could have a few others on it. Some of my personal favorites are coconut telegraph, the weather is here I wish you were beautiful, and five o clock somewhere if you are looking for some that should be on here.

This is a Parrothead favorite of mine! I love this album it has all of my favorite Jimmy Buffett songs on it. I'll leave it at "I like mine with lettuce and tomato, Heinz '57 and french fry potato, big kosher pickle and a cold draft beer, good God almighty which way do I steer?"

About Jimmy Buffett

Jimmy Buffett isn’t just a singer/songwriter—he’s a lifestyle. A Southern boy who started his career trying to break into Nashville, Buffett eventually made his way to Key West, Florida, where he became synonymous with the shoes-off, feet-up image of island life. His music—a blend of folk, country, and tropical sounds sometimes called “gulf and western”—has an escapist quality, but a useful, reassuring one too. It's rife with good party jokes and Zenlike wisdom: a philosophy his fans continue to live by. For a guy whose best-known song, “Margaritaville," captured the pleasures of not doing all that much, Buffett's also a tremendously hard worker, parlaying the world of his music into nightclubs and restaurants, clothing lines and video games, bestselling novels and Broadway musicals. He’s also had one of the industry's most consistently busy touring schedules—what the perennially understated Buffett once called “a great summer job.”
