People I Used to Like

Jimmy Buffett. That is, until he did a marketing deal to get the Miami Dolphins stadium naming rights. Sorta wipes out whatever meaning 99% of his song collection has, doesn't it? How do you sing Twelve Volt Man or A Pirate Looks at 40 when you have forgotten completely the life that led you to write those songs in the first place?

Now I now this Joe down in Mexico
He went there to work on his tan
For years he's been plugged into blenders and songs
They call him the Twelve Volt Man

He don't need no charge card
Just give him a Die Hard
And he'll makes sparks fly 'round your head

Oh just ask for some palm trees
Or tales from the South Seas
And I'll make sparks fly 'round your head
'Round your head
