I am a huge Beach Boys fan, and this being the first few days of summer, I am doing Issue. 27 as the Beach Boys ‘Surfin’ Safari’. It expresses so much of the sun-washed joy of life. The Beach Boys are sort of the Christmas songs of the summer. Enjoy! Surf’s Up!
And because one beautiful thing isn’t enough in a start of Summertime issue –
The following is the old Summertime, Summertime song, remarkable because one, it actually sounds like a Christmas song, two, I hear what sounds like a harpsichord in it, three, I made the comparison to Christmas music before I heard it! That’s a funny coincidence. That said, the rigid, formal style of this pop song is also a little funny too . . .
And check out this amazingly cool surf photo while you are at it. It is called Swell Time In Town and it is by the great Thomas Barbèy.
You can buy the songs here:

Let me know what you think of The Beach Boys song, and the rest of the beautiful things!
Can you think of a reason for not sharing this? Neither could I.
All my caring,
