Please note that the videos embedded with the songs were posted by some great Parrotheads on YouTube and not my creation.
"FINS" (1979) was originally a rather innocuous song about a cute woman down in the islands who has guys (sharks) "schooling" around her. (Not a really bad problem if you ask me.) It is on the Volcano CD.
However, as you can see from the video (from a concert in Australia), "Fins" has become the quintessential concert song and Jimmy cannot do a concert without it. If you've been to a concert you know that there will be a time that you will put your hands together over your head and sway to the left and then to the right and that EVERYONE else there will be doing the exact same thing. It is is part of what makes Jimmy Buffett concerts some of the most popular in the world.
If you have done the concert correctly and arrived several hours beforehand for the the tailgating, you will have seen people with shark hats, cars with shark fins on them and cars that actually are dressed up in total as sharks. As a Patriot fan I hate to add this last bit, but in 2009 Jimmy wrote new lyrics for this song to be used by the Miami Dolphins when they get a touchdown, if that ever happens. So FINS UP!!!!!
