Default Songs about Florida? Florida music?

So we really are moving to Orlandoish area. We are from Texas and love Texas music, what are some good songs about Florida, or is there a Florida sound? I am investigating, but would love to hear some of y'alls favs. THANKS! I am getting in the mood, looking at books, reading history(which is VERY cool).

I think Jimmy Buffett has a great Florida beach sound. "Floridays" is the only one I know of that is specific but there might be others.

I can't think of any aside from all of that Jimmy Buffet crap. Tom Petty mentions US 441 in one of his songs, but that's it.

Wait, I spoke too soon.
Against Me! did "Sink, Florida, Sink" and Freddie Cannon did "Tallahassee Lassie."

Sorry. Aside from Jimmy Buffet, the only thing that comes to mind is Motley Crue mentions "The Dollhouse" in Ft. Lauderdale in their song "Girls, Girls, Girls".

You belong to the City - Miami Vice (Glenn Frey) - (okay, presumably about Miami)

Kokomo - Beach Boys (well it mentions Key Largo)

Swanne River (obviously not mainstream)
