Image Of The Day-“Margaritaville”

August 17, 2010

I never understood the appeal of Jimmy Buffett. I went to a show fifteen years ago and came away with images of drunken slobs wallowing in their own vomit. His music is O.K. but nothing spectacular. It wasn’t until last week covering the show that I finally had an epiphany as to why this guy is so popular. Everybody was just having fun. He could have come out and played goth metal for two hours and the crowd would have still loved it. Setting aside the trials and tribulations of daily life for one night is evidently priceless. For those wanting to cut loose a little bit, he definitely offers the opportunity. Not a bad gig at all.
