That summer feeling

Catch a wave and you’re sittin’ on top of the world

The humidity is awful and the rain keeps falling, endlessly. Is this the summer we longed for during the hard months of winter?

Still, the very thought of Beach Boys brings back the good spirits in me. This one is an absolute favourite and a gem forever to be cherished – Catch A Wave from 1963, this time with some unlikely surfers onboard.The song, penned by Brian Wilson and Mike Love, was included in the boys album Surfer Girl but never released as a single – but still one of their most popular song.

Some interesting trivia: Jan and Dean recorded a cover of the song already in 1964. It was then reworked to a skateboard song and titled Sidewalk Surfin´ and made its way to the 25th spot of the Billboard Chart.

Much joy!
