C is for COCONUT TELEGRAPH

Please note that the videos embedded with the songs were posted by some great Parrotheads on YouTube and not my creation.


I chose "Coconut Telegraph"(1980)  from a large selection of "C" Buffett songs because it signifies what so much of Jimmy's repertoire is, JUST PLAIN FUN! It is from the CD of the same name, Coconut Telegraph.  

Here the story is about a bunch of party folk, who all live near each other on the same (knowing Jimmy) island in the Caribbean.  Every weekend there is a major party and from Sunday until possibly Wednesday there is much discussion among these friends about who did what crazy thing at that party on the "Coconut Telegraph".

When Friday rolls around again and everyone gets paid, they are ready to forget all that craziness and jump into it all again as so many of us did in our younger years, or may be even in these years.  Enjoy!!!

  6. Yes, I was looking for "Cheeseburger in Paradise" or "Changes in Attitudes." But this was a fun song. I'm glad I heard it.

  10. Now this is just plain fun. I meet the most amazing people during the A to Z Challenge. I'm a Jimmy Buffet fan too, but I've only been to the island in my dreams.
