"Key Largo" is the title of a popular song recorded by Bertie Higgins in 1981. Released as a single late in the year, the song became Higgins' only Top 40 hit in the United States in early 1982, when it peaked at #8 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song spent 17 weeks in the Top 40. In addition, "Key Largo" topped the adult contemporary chart for two weeks. In England, the song peaked on the UK Singles Chart at #60.

The song was heavily inspired by the 1948 film "Key Largo", which starred Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, as is evident by the lyric: "We had it all / Just like Bogey and Bacall". The song "Key Largo" was included on Higgins' album, "Just Another Day in Paradise".
