Jimmy Buffett considers this song to be one of “The Big 8” that he always performs in concert. If you think real hard, I’m sure you can come up with the other seven… especially if you’re a parrothead.
This site is primarily focused on providing working musicians with backups they can use on sophisticated equipment – for free. However, I’ve had several requests from people who aren’t professional singers who’d like to get a copy without an instrument playing the lead. They want the backup tracks to a song to use for fun, as a kind of home karaoke without the words on a monitor. Apparently, they know the song so well they don’t need the lyrics or can look up the words somewhere else. Sounds like a good idea to me.
So, from now on, if you’d like a copy of any song WITHOUT a lead line, go to the lists at the right, find the song, and download the MP3 version. Stick it in your MP3 player and sing away.
This Buffett tune is a good place to start. I’ll be going back and updating prior songs but it might take awhile. Patience is a virtue, you know…
