    Ok, here's one song that the artist (Air) put in one of their influences (the Beach Boys) you can kind of here it, but if your not looking for electronica then I don't recommend it:

    Surfin' on a rocket- Air

    if you want to get into surf music that's really awesome, get some jack johnson.

    Brushfire Fairytales is my favorite of his cd's, although a new one comes out on march 1st.

    jack is a pro surfer, and he's a great musician. he went on tour with ben harper. and actually, ben harper plays slide guitar on jack's song "flake" (from Brushfire Fairytales)

    seriously, buy that record. you won't regret it.

    Stuff the Beach Boys, Dick Dale, and the Satanic Surfers.

    Jesus LOVES the original and the best surf band: The Surfaris. Bursting on the scene with the endorphin drenched "Wipeout", they have evolved into a family affair who have taken surf music to Calvary Church.

    I love to watch T/F dragsters and many times after a burnout the crackling sound of 8,000 hp slowly backing up brings that song to mind.
    I love Wipeout.......and CH3NO2.

    Not so sure they were the "original" surf band; but the best surf music was from the late 50s and thru the 60s. My favorite band was the Ventures. Their drummer "invented" the surf drum beat with alternating 1 and 2 snare hit.





    Of course other great bands were the Chantays, Jan and Dean (who actually collaborated with Beach Boys on one hit song) and the guitarists who started the sound were Dick Dale and Duane Eddy.

    And I believe the original lead guitarist from Iron Butterfly Danny Weis was a surfer guitarist prior to linking up with Doug Ingle.

    Didn't even know how to swim. In fact the ONLY one of the original Beach Boys (brothers Brian, Dennis and Carl Wilson and cousin Mike Love) to swim and surf was Carl. He drowned in 1998.

    Good surf songs.
    The best would be surfaris. 'Wipe out'

    A close second would be Beach Boys 'surfing USA'

    If youre female and have a surfer boyfriend your best song would be 'under the boardwalk' by Bette Midler.

    Not familiar with her version. Here is the original:


    In listening to this again, it really is not Surf music which is from the US west coast; but its east coast counterpart "Beach Music."

    Other well known Beach music tunes include "My Girl" by the Temptations, (I'm a) Girl Watcher by the O'Kaysions, and Margaritaville by Jimmy Buffett.

    ? My girl wasnt really a beach song. I dont recall any sea in it.

    What about Summer Holiday by Cliff Richard.

    yes, Bette Midler starred in the movie 'beaches' with Barbara Hershey.
    That was the theme song, along with 'wind beneath my wings'. And yes, the beach in the movie was on the eastern coast of USA.
