Buffett is a legend for his signature beach bum persona and laid-back sound with tropical-themed lyrics. The Broadway musical “Escape to Margaritaville” opened in 2018, in which Buffett is credited with the show’s music and lyrics. But long before that, the song “Margaritaville” launched a string of “Margaritaville”-themed restaurants, stores, and of course, frozen-margarita machines.

Even after five decades of music, Buffett is still going strong. Director Harmony Korine’s 2019 release “The Beach Bum” features a cameo of Buffett and also two songs on the soundtrack.
