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.
You got it. Great choice!
This is a fun and peppy song. I always did like it a lot. 🙂
🙂 🙂 You’re welcome
This week’s prompt, next week’s prompt, almost the same difference. Thanks for joining in Di.
You can’t beat the beach boys 😂😂😂
Not the Beach Boys Willow………. First Class, though I don’t know if they recorded this too. It’s very much their ‘sound’.
Oops that will teach me won’t it 💜💜💜
No problems my friend.
I remember this one. A classic one hit wonder.
It always got my feet tapping.
