#4M: Sounds like the Islands

It’s a new month, and we have a new musical conductor. Stacy from Stacy Uncorked gets to choose our themes this month. Today’s theme is Songs about Islands, or an Island Theme.

When I think of the islands, I think of reggae, perhaps a little calypso. I also think of Jimmy Buffett. A few funs songs that mention Islands in the title or lyrics.  As a result, this week’s list is going to be a bit of a crap shoot. To some it may not even make sense, and that’s okay, too.

Please enjoy this week’s playlist:

  1. Weezer - Island In The Sun
  2. Jimmy Buffett - Cheeseburger in Paradise
  3. Kenny Chesney - Guitars and Tiki Bars
  4. Harry Chapin - 30,000 pounds of Bananas
  5. Harry Belafonte - Banana Boat Song
  6. Beach Boys - Kokomo
  7. Little Anthony & The Imperials - Shimmy Shimmy Ko Ko Bop
  8. Bertie Higgins - Key Largo
  9. Bob Marley - Is This Love
  10. Harry Nilsson - Coconut


Today’s post is part of the Monday’s Music Moves Me blog hop, hosted by X-Mas Dolly, and co-hosted by Stacy Uncorked, Curious as a Cathy. , and Ramblin with AM. Be sure to stop by the hosts and visit the other participants.  If you have a MUSIC* post, feel free to join in the fun! *sorry non-music posts are not permitted in this blog hop.


  1. Mary,

    I can't believe you and I picked three of the same songs! lol Talk about great minds thinking alike. I knew I liked you for some reason. :) You put together a wonderful playlist for today's theme, my dear. Thanks for joining the party. Stay safe and take extra good care of yourself. Hugs & love to ya!

  2. And I can't believe that we both found and selected 30,000 pounds of bananas! I really like the Weezer song. As long time islands residents, I should be surprised at the unique titles of Jimmy Buffett & Kenny Chesney tunes. Well done. Have a blessed week.

  3. 30,000 pounds of bananas, great song. Jimmy Buffett is a must when we are doing Island songs, isn’t he? Love your playlist

  4. Such a great playlist. Enjoyed all of the songs. Very nice.

  5. So many of us picked "Kokomo" and "Day-O". I think you had the only "Cheeseburger in Paradise" if I'm not mistaken, which surprised me a bit. Overall, you presented a great playlist. Bob Marley and Jimmy Buffet scream "Islands".

  6. If your song choices were a crapshoot, I wanna play your version all the time! ;) Love all your song choices!
