001

Although I’ve been on Earth for several years, this is my first time visiting Florida, and so far I think it fails to live up to its hype. I have seen no alligators, no out of control students on spring break (or the required breaking of things), escaped exotic animals, giant mice, or the Man-Thing. Although there are plenty of flipflops, so at least I was not misled on that point.

Disappointment aside, in an effort to get into the Florida spirit I have uncovered several examples of what I believe to be native Florida and beach music. At least that’s the claim my research uncovered, in regards to Jimmy Buffett. I can sort of appreciate his aesthetic, I guess. He has a distinctive sound. Given that there is no tectonic activity anywhere along the Atlantic coast of Florida or in the Gulf, I am not sure where volcanoes came into anything, but I can see why if you lived on a tiny island you might take to drinking excessive amounts of margaritas, so I have decided to give it a pass for now.

However, it seems objectively obvious that the Beach Boys do it better. All the songs don't sound the same and feature something beyond what I assume is a midlife crisis based around drinking and wishing you could sit on a beach all day. Presume I am not wrong about what a mid-life crisis is. They actually celebrate a party beach spirit and attempt to actually vary tempo at times, which I did not realize would be so appreciated until I sat through someone's interpretation of Jimmy Buffet's Best Hits.

See attached short playlists for comparison.

While I finish going through their complete repertoire, I'm taking suggestions for new music. I've hit all the major artists in blues, country, current pop, rap, and R&B, and the beginnings and basics of classic rock, but primarily all produced by the United States and Britain. Suggestions for variety would be appreciated.

You made a Jimmy Buffet mixtape and yet you forgot "Changes in Latitudes." [ although, based on Connors's tone of voice, he's joking around. ]

The Beach Boys are from California, not Florida. California beaches and Florida beaches are different. Just because it's still a beach doesn't mean it's the same.

Jimmy Buffett is also not from Florida, though he moved there (here? Is he here?) later. You're closer to the mark with "native Florida" music than you are with the Beach Boys. He's called his music Drunken Caribbean Rock 'n Roll for as long as I've been listening to him, even before fans called themselves Parrot Heads.

[ Thundercracker has taken great care to listen to both playlists to properly come up with an opinion he feels is right. He actually thinks it might be better to listen to them while actually flying around both the Californian beaches and the Florida beaches, so he does exactly that.

And upon his return, he thinks very carefully about his response.

Very, very carefully.
