    That`s a good tune....but myself I prefer The Ramones version of it.

    IMHO, the Ramones version is a reverential and worthy remake, but lacks the anarchic energy of the original "Surfin' Bird." But, truth be told, my preferences lie with the ultimate originals that inspired the Trashmen -- "The Bird is the Word" and "Papa-Oom-Mow-Mow" by the Rivingtons -- but that takes us outside of the subgenre of surf music. :) "Papa-Oom-Mow-Mow," in particular, is 2:25 of pure and unintended genius.

    "Pipeline" is of course a classic. I like "Sleep Walk" too. I'm too young to remember it from when it was a hit. (It's rare that I say "I'm too young" on this board. :) ) But I've got it on a '50s compilation. It was actually by Santo and Johnny.

    For some reason, surf music doesn't appeal to me at all. Which is odd since I'm from Hawaii and spent a lot of time at the beach surfing and all. LOL When I think surfing music I think Hawaiian music I guess.

    "Although your world wonders me
    with your majestic superior cackling hen.
    Your people I do not understand.
    So to you I wish to put an end.
    And you'll never hear surf music again."
    :)

    For you Music Wench "Don Ho".

    For the others how about "It's a beautiful Day". I think they were very late 60's. For anyone who has not heard them, give them a listen. White Bird is their most popular song.

    "White Bird" is a song that's been on my mind lately. I haven't heard it in many years, and I'd love to hear it again.

    It's been on my mind alot latelly also. I will have to find it and give it another listen. I hope it's not one of those songs that the memory is better than the song.

    Don Ho is lounge music. I'm talking Makaha Sons of Niihau, The Brothers Cazimero and a whole bunch you have probably never heard of. ;)

    I'll take Don Ho over the Beach Boys any day,though.....
