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

Continuing down the alphabet, I find Jimmy has very few "N" songs, but this one is a song I've always liked and actually remember singing to myself when stuck in McCarren Airport in Vegas overnight one night.  "No Plane on Sunday" (1986) is from the Floridays CD.

The story is very simple and we've all been there, although I know I didn't do it Jimmy style.  They're planning on flying out of the islands (since he says "we're on island time") and the flight has been cancelled because of "something with  the landing gear" which seems like a fine reason to me.  Well, most of us would sit around the airport like the disgruntled people in the video, but Jimmy envisions a different plan.

In his plan, you meet a handsome guy (or beautiful woman) and even though you both have someone back home you spend the night dining, walking on the beach and very  much together.  Then comes Monday and it's back to real life.  It sure beats playing the slots and sleeping on the floor at McCarren.  Jimmy always seems to have a better plan.


  1. Amazing that you are finding songs for each letter!


  2. Jimmy Buffet might not have had any songs that start with the letter "n" but didn't he get his start in Nashville? ;-) I love this Pirate!

  3. Again-- I find the song is familiar--but I don't know if I've actually heard it before. Awesomeness :) Jenn.

  4. He must be talkin'about San Juan, PR. When you come to visit me, avoid San Juan, PR. Everybody gets stuck and spends the night in San Juan. Course,if you're gonna do it Jimmy style, maybe you want to add San Juan to your itinerary.

  5. *Shudder* I've been there TOO many times! :)

  6. I'd rather be stuck in Vegas than in Minneapolis like I was once. But, a tropical island would be even better!!
