When I was a very young boy my decade older sister would take me everywhere with her. In the 70’s nothing was cooler than on the weekends the local theater would show the new surf movies. My favorite was 5 Summer Stories, not just for the surfing but the soundtrack by the band Honk. I was so psyched from the movie I made her take me surfing the next day. Even though I was too little to carry my own 8ft board she would have a friend carry it down to the shore and send me on my way (seems a little unwise looking back!) while they would play volleyball all day. I would stay out most of the day catching waves, pretending to be Gerry Lopez and humming this song.
Fun Fact: Butch Van Artsdalen featured in this video was a lifeguard at Pipeline and always had a 12pack in the tower with him. Few people could swim out there sober & he saved people drunk off his ass.
Fun Fact 2: To this day my sister loves Honk & constantly listens to them.
Do you have a soundtrack or song stuck in your head when you do something?
