Music Monday is upon us and Salt Life Sound brings you a little ditty about PainKillers, white sand beaches, Soggy Dollars and some guy named Ivan. I of course am talking about Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands. Looking for fantasy island? Jost just might be the closest thing.

Adam C. Dell, lead singer of Da Tree Men, wrote the music and lyrics of this song, “Jost Van Dyke.” It’s a great song that puts you in the mood for those lazy days swaying in the hammocks at the Soggy Dollar Bar sipping on famous PainKillers.  Da Tree Men are working on more great island songs and looking to put an album together soon.

If you’re looking for more great island music check out

Da Tree Men debuted the song at The Elm in Cane Garden Bay on Tortola July 4, 2010.
