Jimmy Buffett made an appearance on the “Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” and officially kicked off summer with his enduring classic “Margaritaville.”
Would it ever be summer for real without hearing that song at least once?
Buffett, 67, broke into music in the 1960s as a country artist.
But he soon adopted tropical and Caribbean rhythms and developed his own sound that has long been identified with lazy days at the beach.
“Margaritaville,” was first released in 1977 and appeared on his album Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes.
It’s become one of the most enduring songs of summer and is probably the most played beach song in the world. It’s also defined Buffett’s career.
It evokes images of warm sun, cool beaches and women who wear little or no clothing. What would summer be without it?
