Thanks for checking out The Andy Derer Show!

Here’s your #TapeTuesday! The Beach Boys “Kokomo” (1988)

Here's your #TapeTuesday. The Beach Boys with their final #1 hit song "Kokomo." The song was used for the 1988 Tom Cruise-starring film Cocktails and the single release coincided with the movie's premier. The song was written by the long-tormented John Phillips, Scott McKenzie (of "San Fransico – Be Sure To Wear Flowers In Your Hair" fame) along with the Beach Boy Mike Love and California super-producer Terry Melcher. The mastermind of The Beach Boys, Brian Wilson, did not contribute to the writing or recording of the song. "Kokomo" references many exotic locales like "Aruba, Jamaica, Bermuda, Bahama, Key Largo, Montego Bay" etc, however "Kokomo" itself is a fictional place dreamt up by the frequent Caribbean party animal John Phillips. The song was an instant smash, and despite the Beach Boys ubiquity, it was actually their first #1 hit in America since 1966's game-changer "Good Vibrations." The song remains an irresistible, though slightly light-weight piece of Island pop. From my Dad's cassette collection. #BeachBoys #Kokomo #Cocktails #JohnPhillips #MikeLove #ScottMcKenzie #TerryMelcher

RIP Chicagoist!

Chicagoist

Sad to hear that Chicagoist will be closing for business. Had the pleasure of writing freelance music reviews for them for the past few years. I am disappointed to see that they have completely erased everyone’s hard work from the internet and hoping that this will be just a temporary scrub. However, I’d like to thank everyone there for including me and letting me expand my music knowledge with lots of concert tickets and downloads. Seems like another reason for me to bring back The Andy Derer Show.
