Jimmy Buffett - Rainy Day Women # 12 & 35
Today, December 25th, we remember the birthday of Jesus from Nazareth. Jesus would've been 2017 years old today if he hadn't been executed in 33.
Dylan mentioned Jesus in many of his songs and even dedicated a part of his career to him. On Sundays we often pay tribute to the Dylan-Jesus connection by selection a song of this particular period.
December 25th is also the birthday of Jimmy Buffett, who is best known for his music, which often portrays an "island escapism" lifestyle. Together with his Coral Reefer Band, Buffett has recorded hit songs including "Margaritaville" (ranked 234th on the Recording Industry Association of America's list of "Songs of the Century") and "Come Monday". He has a devoted base of fans known as "Parrotheads".
Although it's hard to find a household in the USA that doesn't have a Jimmy Buffett record on the shelf Jimmy is widely unknown outside the country.
Jimmy Buffett plays Rainy Day Women #12 and 35 Live at Nissan Pavilion, Bristow, VA on 8/30/08.
