Song Lyric Sunday 4/16/17 Rain

https://helenespinosa.wordpress.com/2017/04/15/song-lyric-sunday-theme-for-41617/

Oh, I so wanted to find another song than the one I immediately thought of. I wanted a dark and meaningful Dylan song or maybe one about the Northwest. We do have that reputation up here for rain after all.

I even found what I thought might be a fun song that fit for today. It is Easter (whatever that means to you) so when I spotted the song Ocean Rain by Echo and the Bunnymen, I thought “How perfect!” But what a depressing song that turned out to be!

So I’m back at my original thought, the obvious one I was avoiding.

I grew up in San Diego and though the Beach Boys sang about us, they were not actually a part of us. Nope, instead, we had the one hit wonder, the Cascades. They lived and performed among us all over San Diego. (Were you there then, Mr. Fish???)

I remember this one dance I went to………..Well, anyway, here is their song.

Their history, if you are interested.

PS I actually did like this song but at the time, it just didn’t fit the deep and intellectual reputation I was trying to build for myself. Plus, I had already been on a blind date with the drummer of the Association!!! I was cool.

Thought a blog might help me develop better writing habits so I could finally finish my book, 16 years in the writing, but so far it's mostly photos and FUN!

    1. I have so many posts about San Diego…mostly beach life. Didn’t get out your way much until I was a young adult and worked at one of the early Drug Treatment places, more like a “recovery commune” really. It was on the border of Leon Grove and Spring Valley I think. And Thank YOU for the memories too!
