The Beach Boys are undoubtedly one of my favorite bands. I love the surfer vibes and the light heartedness of their music. If I was ever forced to rank their songs I would definitely start with God Only Knows followed by Kokomo (a childhood favorite of mine – granted I had no idea about all the innuendos in there).

Third on my list would be California Girls – one of the main reasons is that my life has lined up to the point that I am the quintessential “Cali girl” they sing about. If only I lived in the mid-60s!

While enjoying their catchy tune you can read the breakdown on why I feel I am THE girl the Beach Boys were wishing for:

Well East coast girls are hip
I really dig those styles they wear
I lived in Massachusetts – granted I was too young to really develop an east coast fashion sense, but my personal style is very beachy – I think the boys would dig it.
And the Southern girls with the way they talk
They knock me out when I’m down there

I’ve lived in Alabama (6 months) and Tennessee (combined to nearly 9 years) so I think I can pull off a great southern accent.

The Mid-West farmer’s daughters really make you feel all right
My dad is part owner of a tree farm! So I AM a farmer’s daughter!
And the Northern girls with the way they kiss
They keep their boyfriends warm at night
I’m told I’m a good kisser, and having spent a good chunk of my life in Minnesota, I know the north!

I wish they all could be California
I wish they all could be California
I wish they all could be California girls
And I became one – for 6 years! I’d love to go back, too.

The West coast has the sunshine
And the girls all get so tanned

For a blond hair, blue eyed girl I tan quite nicely!
I dig a French bikini on Hawaii island
Dolls by a palm tree in the sand
I’ve worn bikinis (not French) in Hawaii & spent loads of times by palm trees in the sand.

I been all around this great big world
And I’ve seen all kinds of girls
I, too, have used my passport plenty of times and met many foreign girls, so I’m sure I’ve learned a few things from them.
Yeah, but I couldn’t wait to get back in the states
Back to the cutest girls in the world
But I always come back home to the US of A.

I wish they all could be California
I wish they all could be California
I wish they all could be California girls
