Not Kokomo but still sunshine and sand.

Growing up I used to borrow my Dad’s record of Homer & Jethro at the Country Club. This song was one that I always enjoyed.

Homer & Jethro were humorous and I am sure they were especially so in a live setting, and I love their version of 16 tons. You may want to investigate that on your own.

But I digress.  So many songs from this era ~ Beach Boys! Did they do any songs that weren’t fabulous?

This was the age of Walter Kronkite on the CBS news, and you have to wonder if this song was written and sung for all the girls who had boyfriends in Vietnam.

When you watch the video, you look at the clothes and the styles. It was a neat time, and life seemed simpler in those years, more free, more optimistic, and much cheaper gas prices!

The Monkees, the Beach Boys, the surfing songs, I was growing up and I remember those years with rose tinted glasses.
