For many it's Jimmy Buffett - whose career started here on the island now synonymous with the song Margaritaville. Each year the Parrothead fan club holds its Meeting of the Minds in Key West.
For others, it's Bahamian music - reflecting on the island's Bahamian roots, and today still well represented by the Junkanoos.
Latin music is also a part of the island - with its historic ties to Cuba. And lets not forget the Village People's song Key West.
But how about a country song? Don't laugh.
During the upcoming Songwriters Festival, the Mayor of Key West, Morgan McPherson, is about to designate the country song "Key West Address" by James Slater (James who?) as the "official" song of Key West. (There is only one country radio station and one country bar in Key West)
Listen to the song below:
Sounds to me like a Jimmy Buffett knockoff. If you're going in that direction, then why not designate a Jimmy Buffett song?
What do you think? Should the Mayor decide for all of us the "official" song of Key West?
What tune would you vote for?
