Beach Boys - Surfin' Safari

I sure hope you like the Beach Boys. It ain't summer without them, and it's nothing but summer music of one sort or another through at least the end of this month, so you'll be seeing plenty of them.

If you like surf music you should check out Dick Dale and/or The Tornados. (I went through a big surf rock phase a few months back).

Hey, I didn;t know that you ever popped by! Thanks for commenting! I know of Dick Dale and the Tornados, but I don't know that I've heard any.

Silver Turtle said...

Yep - I actually have you on my RSS reader. :)

I think the Tornados have a track on the Pulp Fiction soundtrack. That's the first place I heard them. Kind of hard to find.

I know I got at least one Dick Dale CD from the Cbus library.

Dane said...

I'm flattered! Thank you.

I used to have that soundtrack, God knows what happened to it.Are there any songs you recommend?

Karswell said...

For really cool surf(esque) rock with a darker edge check out The Bomboras or The Ghastly Ones. Also recommended: Man Or Astro-Man, Los Straitjackets, and of course The Ventures, The Sufaris etc...

Dane said...

I have the Munsters theme as done by Los Straitjackets. :)


Music is posted for a short time, and while I use it in part to (hopefully, though not always) go along with the theme of the photo, I also post it in hopes someone will give it a try and fall in love with it as I have. Perhaps they will then seek out more by the artist and buy more cds. That's how it works with me, anyway. If you like it, pick it up at the store; support the artists you love.
