The music kicks off with a live version of “California Girls”, by The Beach Boys. I love most of their music but it is exponentially better when you are sitting on the beach with a cool breeze coming off the deep blue sea. This one could have easily been in my top 100 songs.
One night at a little dive bar where I used to live there was a guy playing cover songs with a banjo. He had a Springsteenish vibe to his voice and could really play the banjo. He played “California Girls” and it was simply magical with the pluck of a string replacing the organ.
The West coast has the sunshine
And the girls all get so tanned
I dig a french bikini on Hawaii island
Dolls by a palm tree in the sand
