James sings about Mexico, then says he's "Never really been" there. Actually, he refers to having been in Mexico for a concert, but coming down with traveler's diarrhea (Montezuma's revenge). He canceled the show, spending the whole time in his hotel room, which greatly disappointed him. (thanks, Joel - toms river, NJ)
David Crosby and Graham Nash sang the harmonies. Taylor was married to Carly Simon at the time, and she also sang on the album. (thanks, Christine - Chicago, IL)
Jimmy Buffett remade this song on his album Barometer Soup. Buffett pays tribute to Taylor several times in the song. (thanks, Jen - Boulder, CO)
