Song Lyric Sunday 12th February

Jim Adams is our host and this week’s theme is Sunshine Pop as suggested by John Holton of The Sound of One Hand Typing.
Jim tells us:
The term Sunshine Pop did not exist during the 60s, so it is difficult to pin-point an exact beginning of this music. This genre was created in Southern California, but it is not just contained to the sun-kissed California region. It drew from the warm and whimsical sides of psychedelic pop mixed with the catchiness of commercial jingles and this bright wonderful music can be highly addictive. The feel-good music was aimed at young-adult couples who weren’t connecting with the British invasion, acid rock, folk-rock, or Motown, but favored a gentler, more seductive vocal sound and a sighing, have-a-nice-day theme.

This one according to WIKI comes under the genre of Bubblegum Pop (next week’s prompt….. oops).
I always liked it because it has a feel good factor for me of 10.

“Beach Baby” is a song by the British band the First Class. Written by John Carter and his wife, Gillian Shakespeare, the song became the band’s only substantial hit. The subject of the lyrics is not holiday love, but a broken love relationship between two high school students in Los Angeles in the 1950s.

Lyrics are in the clip.



About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
