Continuing with the TWC Twelve Days of Christmas Tuneography and there is not a whole lot left to be said about this tune. The quintessential So Cal mid-century experience (omigod, does that term just want to make you puke?) was the Beach Boys. Prolly should have said mid-sixties? Or early sixties?
TWC quite fully bought into that myth. There was a girl with a tan of golden brown waiting on the beach for me. But we kept missing each other because every time I went to the beach she'd gone home for lunch. And I went to the beach a lot. [shrugs]
Show of hands. Guys. Who remembers the first time you hugged a skimpily attired girl on the beach? Knocked yer socks off. Eh?
Can't see the video? Tough. Just kidding, it's here.
And a particularly nice cover.....
Okay, if you can't see that neither, look right here.
