Jimmy Buffett, “Grapefruit Juicy Fruit”, 1973
The chorus is what really makes this song go, because it’s also a transtion to a loping steel guitar C&W groove that will instantly make you start to move around the room, or at least get your toes tapping.
There are two, at exactly 1:00 and 2:00 in.
One of my all time favorite Jimmy Buffett songs, and the album — the title a tribute to the Marty Robbins #1 Country hit from 1957 below — is top notch as well.
Marty Robbins, “A White Sport Coat and a Pink Carnation”
Robbins is a Country music legend who recorded 500 songs and 60 albums, and also drove NASCAR on the side (35 races, 6 top 10 finishes). He died in 1982 at just 57 after his third heart attack and quadruple bypass surgery.
