"Key Largo" is a popular song recorded by Bertie Higgins in 1981. Released as a single in September of that year, it became, in early 1982, Higgins' only Top 40 hit in the United States; it peaked at #8 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The track spent 17 weeks in the Top 40 and was certified Gold by the RIAA. In addition, "Key Largo" topped the adult contemporary chart for two weeks. In the United Kingdom, it reached #60 on the UK Singles Chart.
A promotional music video was produced in 1982, filmed in and around Tarpon Springs, Florida. It begins with Bertie Higgins leaning against a pole, smoking a cigarette, reminiscing. Later, the singer is seen walking with a young woman, played by then-17-year-old Patty Wolfe. The scene then cuts to the pair riding in a motorboat around Anclote Key, off Tarpon Springs. The video also shows them in a car on Fred Howard Park. The final moments depict the two walking along a beach at sunset.
