As we gear up for the Sun of a Beach Festival on the Bangor waterfront, we thought we’d take a look at the best Jimmy Buffett songs of all time.

The premier Buffett tribute band, Changes in Latitudes, will play all the favorites at the July 12 festival, which will also feature Zac Brown tribute band, ZBTB. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 on the day of the festival.

There are so many Buffett classics, from “Margaritaville” to “Come Monday,” that have to be on the list, but we want you to tell us if we missed any! Just leave your suggestions in the comments and we’ll add them to our list.

Meanwhile, we’ll see you at the festival! If you don’t have tickets you can buy them here.

Until then, enjoy the best of Buffett:

One Particular Harbour

 
 

Although "Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes" makes you long for the tropics, so does this 1983 tune written by Buffett and  Hawaiian-born Tahitian musician Bobby Holcomb. It's not part of the "Big 8" played at virtually all Buffett shows, but here's a great live performance.

Pencil Thin Mustache

 
 

Do you know who Andy Divine is? How about Boston Blackie? Check out this live recording from Fenway Park.

Come Monday

 
 

Did you know they still make Hush Puppies? Buffett immortalized the shoes in this 1974 classic about the lonliness of the road. It even spent some time on the country charts back in the day.

Fins

 
 

This is for all the land sharks! It's a fun song so check out this live performance from the Gulf Shores Benefit Concert.

Margaritaville

 
 

Jimmy Buffett's first big hit and one of his very best, no doubt!
