As made famous by gloomy pirate Jimmy Bummer. E minor with ukulele and guitar.

I think maybe margaritas are a metaphor for heroin.

Also, it turns out that Margaritaville in a minor key is actually just "The Way" by Fastball.

I HATED the original Margaritaville. This, I like.

You have too much time on your hands. And, at the risk of fellating, this is real good. Can you sing a live duet?

this reminds me of fado for some reason ... and it certainly sounds much more hungover than jimmy buffet ever did, which is only appropriate

Thanks for the idea. I performed it on ukulele at a local benefit this weekend, without attribution.
(What am I going to say- 'Here's a song by cortex.' ??)
Of course I did it in D minor, because it's 'the saddest of all keys.'
