The Turtles: Happy Together, Elenor
Quite a lot of Motorhead songs would transition.
East Bay Ray was pretty much a surf player anyway.
Sure, but, how many people in any given crowd know any Motorhead songs?
Outside of at a metal or punk show or something, I'm betting the average is in the single digits, and even then, they prob only know Ace of Spades.
So that is not really meeting the familiarity requirement (at all)
DKs even moreso
I like this idea a lot. And to me, it begins and ends with minor key folk songs. Russian (Miserlou anyone?), Hungarian, Jewish, slavic ****. Amazing for surf.
Yeah, and stuff like "Paint it Black".
ooo, there we go...
How come most of the great ideas in this thread are mine?
Oh well, good to brainstorm, and, one thing leads to another, in this sense
Check out the band sandworms. I saw them at a surf/rockabilly show in San Antonio 10 years ago. They were great. I’m not a huge surf rock guy, but I bought their album.
This one might be good but I'm not sure how well-known it is
Great song, for sure
Fur Elise (by that Beethoven dude)...Seville (you know, from Bugs Bunny Rabbit of Seville)...theme from Young Frankenstein. Maria from West Side Story...
Oh, and In The Hall Of The Mountain King.
Surfrajettes kill it. Girl surf band from, Canada. How do you like that?
Honky Tonk Beach Boys
Let's Go Trippin
Maybe this one. Maybe I'm trying to turn you into a 50s/60s band but I hear big drums and lots of reverb. Plenty of room for vocal harmonies too.
Maybe better than you think, given that the bass player is now local to us.
I love that song from my honkytonk band days
Not surf, just an easy song with a lot of drive.
Yah that one's a fave of mine for sure. But does anyone know it? "Green Onions" prob a better bet
If your going to do Rebel Yell you might as well throw White Wedding in there too. That one always reminds me of surf or spaghetti westerns when I hear it anyway.
