* TheMerch: He has restaurants called "Margaritaville" and "Cheeseburger in Paradise" that are named after two of his greatest hits. The former has more restaurants than the later. Also, "Margaritaville" has frozen food, beer, furniture, clothing, and barware under the name. The song has been considered to be the most valuable song, making more money off of related products rather than sales of the track.

* SequelSong: [[WordOfGod According to Buffett himself]], Frankie and Lola Dupree -- the main characters in the song "Frankie and Lola" -- who are trying to rebuild their marriage by going "on a second honeymoon in Pensacola", are the same mutually cheating couple depicted in his earlier song, "Who's the Blonde Stranger." While he never wrote a third song revealing whether their attempt to fix their marriage worked, Buffett likes to say that he's "hopeful that love conquers all."

Think about the islands. Think about blue skies and sandy beaches. Think about escaping all the worries of your life and just relaxing under a big umbrella, holding a rum-based umbrella-garnished cocktail that's been served in a coconut shell. Now think about the music that's playing in the background. Chances are, you're thinking of JimmyBuffett and his music right now.
