  • Wow - you a brave man.

    When it comes to music, I'm as serious as a sucking chest wound, so that's like talking American politics.

    I hate Jimmy Buffett and all that "soft rock" crap like cancer.

    If you're not about being literal...

  • At least you've got good taste in boats.

    Are we morphing into music critics now? If so, here goes. I agree somewhat with the above quote. Sailing a small catamaran is a whole different vibe than cruising in a monohull. "Sparks" by the Who off the album "Tommy" captures the feeling pretty well. But if you want to dig deep, try "Cat's Squirrel" by Blodwyn Pig off the album, "All Said and Done". It starts slow, (Imagine raising the sails and getting out through the shore break.) and then as the boat starts to really go, it transitions into this really kick-ass rhythm that'll blow your mind.

    Damn straight.
  • jack108136Is Little Feat OK?


    Little Feat is fine. Even all these years after Lowell George assumed room temperature, the band still has his pedigree, and even a cranky old prog bastard like me gives respect for the time he spent with Zappa and playing for John Cale.
  • And I've straddled the fence on The Beach Boys: Sail On, Sailor is a terrific track, while Sloop John B. sucks sweaty goat...
  • I enjoy Jimmy's music! And Little Feat, Spearhead, Kenny Chesney's ripoffs of Buffett's music...
    When I'm blasting around Wisconsin lakes, looking forward to a cold beer when I dock, I feel almost like I'm in the island vibe Jimmy presents.
  • Love Buffett, Little Feat, CSNY...

    For the record, Sloop John B. - "the song stems from an old Bahamian folk song about the Sloop John B. In 1647, there was a colony in the Bahamas where a Welshman named John Bethel lived. He built a sloop, a 16 foot vessel that carries a crew of five."
    The Beach Boys vacationed in Bahama and decided to record the song.

  • Good story. Still doesn't make the song not suck.
