“Margaritaville” is now in the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry!

I’ve been saying it for decades and finally Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden agrees with me. On Wednesday, she included Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville as one of 25 recordings to be listed as “audio treasures worthy of preservation for all time based on their cultural, historical or aesthetic importance in the nation’s recorded sound heritage.”

As you might have guessed, the band I play with — The Tropical Sons — play Margaritaville, and we’ll definitely be including it in tomorrow’s sets in Downtown Clearwater.
