Subject

Surfin' Safari--the Beach Boys first release

Description

Their first hit released in 1962 was “Surfin’ Safari,” and it rose to number 14 on the charts. This is the typical Beach Boys sound. The tone of the song is light and upbeat. It is very simple and somewhat hedonistic. This song does not seem to reflect any deeper meaning or hidden message.
