335 – The Rivieras – California Sun (1964)



Escrita por Henry Glover e Morris Levy , foi originalmente gravada por um artista de New Orleans chamado Joe Jones e lançada pela Roulette Records no inverno de 1961, chegando ao numero 89 nos charts pop americanos.   

Foi regravada por Annette Funicello em 1963. Porem a regravacao de mais sucesso foi a que escolhemos, com os Rivieras, de 1964, que chegou ao numero 5 dos charts pop americanos. Os Crickets tambem fizeram uma regravacao no mesmo ano. 

Os Ramones a gravaram em 1977. Bobby Fuller tambem a regravou, Tommy James and The Shodelss, Chris Isaak, Frank Avalon, Offspring, entre outros. 

A letra:

Well, I'm goin' out west where I belong
Where the days are short and the nights are long
Where they walk and I'll walk
They twist and I'll twist
They shimmy and I'll shimmy
They fly and I'll fly
Well they're out there a'havin' fun
In that warm California sun.

Well, I'm goin' out west out on the coast
Where the California girls are really the most
Where they walk and I'll walk
They twist and I'll twist
They shimmy and I'll shimmy
They fly and I'll fly
Well they're out there a'havin' fun
In that warm California sun.

Well the girls are frisky in old ‘Frisco
A pretty little chick wherever you go
A-a-and they'll walk and I'll walk
They'll twist and I'll twist
They'll shimmy and I'll shimmy
They'll fly and I'll fly
Well they're out there a'havin' fun
In that warm California sun

Yeah they're out there a'havin' fun
In that warm California sun
