Today's Tune: California Sun
With the temperature getting up to 27 today, it's time to dust off the all-time #1 summer tune. It was originally recorded in 1961 by Joe Jones but everyone remembers the 1964 cover version by The Rivieras. Like "California Dreamin'" the song didn't originate in California, it was all just wishful thinking. Joe Jones was from Louisiana, The Rivieras were from Indiana, The Dictators were from New York (except singer Handsome Dick Manitoba), and Los Straitjackets are from Tennessee. Only Dave Alvin is from California.
On the video, more California wannabees: The Ramones.
