Here is the answer. The question was, “What’s your favorite beach music song?”
I can’t beat this, âOh-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh; Oh-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh My lady soul.
OK, the Temptations’ 1986 song is listed as a rhythm and blues single, but I doubt there is a beach music station that doesn’t play it regularly. Many beach bands probably have it in their repertoire as well.
Anyway, while sitting with a friend at Jersey Mike’s recently, the subject of the beach came up. I told him I had a special connection to Jersey Mike’s because I was born that same year AND at one time was living in New Jersey and enjoying some of the beaches thereâ¦ I might have. even being had one of those first Jersey Mike subs in Wildwood or Atlantic City or Cape May.
But the topic quickly turned to beach music – a genre I had never heard of until I moved to North Carolina 18 years ago. But now this is the one I really enjoyed – even though my feet haven’t caught up with the shagging bug yet.
This friend of mine, whom I’ll call Wally because I promised him I would, introduced Jim Quick & Coastline’s entire song list as his favorite beach music tunes.
He didn’t pick a single one, but narrowed it down to “Beep, beep” and “Turn me around.” “
I told him he actually picked a favorite beach music ARTIST, not a favorite song. All he did was give me an elongated raspberry, and the topic was closed.
So now I come to you with the same question: what is your favorite beach music song?

We know that astronomy, economics, and oceanography are enough to keep even an honorary student busy. Remember that the pursuit of knowledge is a NOBLE task and you will never be able to study enough.
