Will Arnett Talks “Margaritaville”

March 11th, 2016


TV star Will Arnett has a new show on Netflix and in an interview with Entertainment Weekly he talks about getting Buffett’s permission to use “Margaritaville”:

Arnett talks about how Malkmus scored scenes of the leading man riding around Venice beach on his bike, writing an “unbeatable’ theme song, and also covering the Jimmy Buffett tropical hit “Margaritaville.”

“I got to ask Jimmy if [using his song] was cool, which of course he said yeah because he’s rad,” Arnett recounted. “And then I got to play it on my iPhone for Jimmy — Steve’s cover — and I was like stuck in this absurd reality.”

Luckily, getting in touch with Jimmy Buffett was actually very easy for Arnett, who admits to actually have been living in the legendary singer’s house at the time.
