Thread Name: Margaritaville, most lucrative song ever
Subject: RE: Margaritaville, most lucrative song ever
I was in a Catholic seminary in Milwaukee from 1962-70, so I missed a bit. I wouldn't say I was 'sheltered,' but I didn't get out of Milwaukee much and spent summers at a boys' camp. My brothers were growing up in Racine, Wisconsin - 25 miles south of Milwaukee. They tended to go to Chicago for music, and they had quite an experience. The middle brother was a booking agent, so he had contact with everybody in music in the midwest. My youngest brother had a lot of music in his life, too. Here's what he says about a Jimmy Buffett DVD he has: So, you, Brits, I wonder if you could spend a little time and effort to try to understand us Americans. Go to Spotify or YouTube or wherever, and listen to a little Jimmy Buffett, Steve Goodman, Jerry Jeff Walker, Jim Croce, Willie Nelson, and Waylon Jennings. I think you'll enjoy them.
