I created a new version of my original song "Paradise Island" - an acoustic remix with a bass boost added to the guitar track to give it a more island feel, a la Jimmy Buffett, Jack Johnson, or Kenny Chesney. I'd like to get everybody's opinion - do you like this version better or my earlier one? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3HxWmT... . I also included nice photos from various beach vacation hot spots, including the Bahamas, Bermuda, Puerto Rico, St. Pete Beach in Florida, and Virginia Beach. Enjoy!

Lyrics:

First Verse:

It was a cold, cold winter but spring is finally here
The kids are still in school but spring break is drawing near
It's time to board a puddle jumper and hop across the sea
On the tarmac at Nassau town is where I want to be

Chorus:

Hop across the bay where the sharks and dolphins play
It's a place called Paradise Island and it's where I want to stay

Second Verse:

On the walkway we tread carefully as the sharks and rays swim by
Underneath the Predator Lagoon a big grouper says hi
On the pyramids of Atlantis the kids go up and play
While the parents lie out on the sandy beach and catch ourselves some rays

Chorus:

Hop across the bay where the sharks and dolphins play
It's a place called Paradise Island and it's where I want to stay

[Instrumental]

Third Verse:

At night we hit the tiki bars as the blazing sun goes down
Drinking frozen rum drinks will get rid of any frown
We watch the lights of Nassau town as we look across the bay
This is the best vacation that we had to this day

Chorus:

Hop across the bay where the sharks and dolphins play
It's a place called Paradise Island and it's where I want to stay
