Surf's Up

We are having something of a mini heatwave in Scotland this week.
Just back from a couple of days in Portpatrick with sunburn as a souvenir.
In weather like this one's thoughts turn to the sounds of summer and in particular to the Beach Boys and their surfer songs.
Now I have never surfed in my life and given that I am old and decrepit I am highly unlikely to start now.
However it doesn't stop me appreciating a good surf song when I hear one and here are three from the masters of the genre.

The Beach Boys - Surfin' Safari

The Beach Boys - Surfin' USA

The Beach Boys - Surfer Girl


  1. Glorious weather these last few days in the West CC. No better music than The Beach boys to compliment it.

  2. I love the Beach Boys. The first two records I took possession of as a child was a Curtis Mayfield record and The Beach Boys in Concert. Still, the ones that are given nearly enough attention are Jan and Dean.

    Thanks for the songs and thanks for reminding me of those two.

    1. Curtis and the Beach Boys as your first two records is pretty impressive Erik.
      Mine were Part of the Union by the Strawbs and Tie a Yellow Ribbon by Tony Orlando and Dawn!
