    The Jimmy Buffett version of “Trip Around the Sun”. Followed by the version of Stephen Bruton, who co-wrote the song and who sang it best. Stephen quit riding around the sun a couple of years ago, and I miss his music dearly.


    followed by Bruton -- at least listen to his interview. He was a master songwriter.

      AB, riding around the sun is a keeper concept. Tomorrow morning I’m sitting with coffee and listening to the whole of this.

        Food: I wish you could have had the pleasure of hearing Stephen live. I once described him as the “cutest white man alive”. He fell off his white horse to me, but he was still cute and a great writer. Check out others on YouTube. My fave was always Top Hat; some of the lyrics were “I’ve got a big top hat with a crown of thorns, just like you-know-who” and of course the chorus “you can kiss my ass till my hat pops off; goodbye, I’m headed south”. Words to live by IMHO.
