LORELAI: Sing “Margaritaville”.


“Margaritaville”, a 1977 song by Jimmy Buffett from his album, Changes in Latitude, Changes in Attitude. The song is written about the margarita cocktail, which Buffett had just discovered, and the first huge surge of tourists which descended on Key West, Florida, around that time. With lyrics reflecting a laid-back tropical lifestyle, it has come to define Buffett’s music and career. The song went to #8 in the US, #1 on the Easy Listening charts, and #13 on the Country Music charts. It was most popular in Canada, going to #1. It remains his highest-charting single, and was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2016.

Jimmy Buffett owns the Margaritaville resort chain, named after the song.
