    05:49 - all the Buffett and Buffett-related songs are in our cruise video, with the exception of “Brown Eyed Girl” (since it really was more like Van Morrison’s arrangement) and “Come Monday” (since I was running out of videotape).  I managed to get audio of the final song, “Lovely Cruise”, on my cellphone, but it was so over-modulated I only used a snippet in the video.
