Beach Boys – Surfin’ U.S.A. (1963)

Surfin' U.S.A. by the Beach Boys is a great summer hit and a Californian classic.Scenery: On my summer holiday I was standing on a beach with sand between my feet looking after my kinds not going to far out at sea (never got in the cold water myself). Standing there freezing and looking out on the blue ocean I find myself humming Surfin’ U.S.A. by the Beach Boys. Actually the music is Chuck Berrys Sweet Little Sixteen changed to a surfing extraordinaire hit by the Beach Boys. Strange but true. Why this song pops into my mind I do not know because no surfers were in sight. Maybe I was longing for a visit to the USA or my mind try to convince me to learn how to surf. I do not know but I like the song Surfin’ U.S.A, it is a great summer hit.

Highest chart position: US Billboard Hot 100 #3 and UK singles chart #34.

Another reminder from this summer holiday  is Mungo Jerrys In The Summertime.
