Blast from the past! Got the first six, but the other three are so well hidden in the song, I never even knew they were there.

Because I couldn't understand "that Montserrat mystique," for years I sang it as "that moldy rotten stink."

I always heard 'Montserrati steak.' Figured it was some Caribbean dish that if I was rich/cultured I'd know about.

Actually, I thought they were singing "Montserrat, Mustique" (another Caribbean island) and I couldn't figure out why the quiz was accepting Montserrat but not Mustique.

The moldy rotten stink is Port-au-Prince. Kokomo, Indiana is far more a tropical paradise than that hell hole.

Hmm I had some of the sounds sort of in my head, for instance I was sure havana was in there ( cause remember humming hahama or something) but it was bahamas. Very weird that aruba is relatively low ! It is what it starts with. it was the only one i got together with jamaica. but I was extremely young when I heard it, and havent heard it in like 25 years atleast

Florida ( "Off the Florida keys" ) should be counted as a place I believe. Great quiz!

In uni, our script writing professor played this song on repeat for an entire hour long class for April Fools. It is now etched into my brain permanently.
