Half of Jimmy Buffett's career has consisted of portraying himself as the quintessential one-hit wonder. Even the title of this greatest hits collection, SONG(S) YOU KNOW BY HEART, plays off this misperception with winking parentheses. In reality, by the time of this collection in 1985, Jimmy Buffett had recorded over 16 albums, was one of the most popular U.S. concert attractions, and had a legion of rabid fans known as Parrotheads. He had also had four Top 40 hits besides "Margaritaville," all of which, plus other fan favorites, are present here.
Buffett certainly knows how to craft an enjoyable pop song. The lyrics to "Volcano" are childish and nonsensical, and those of "Cheeseburger in Paradise" are certifiably cheeky, but both are eminently fun and hummable. "Pencil Thin Moustache," his ode to the earnestness of old black-and-white movies, is a forgotten treasure. When Buffett does get serious, he can write a flat-out beautiful song--"Come Monday," his first major hit, stands out as a highlight of the singer/songwriter era.
...remains the only Buffett album for outsiders, a collection of clever, hummable folk rock with just the right amounts of self-deprecation, boat-pier pensiveness, and singer-songwriter homilies... - Rating: B
