Yesterday I went on a fantastic trip to the beach, I have the sun burn to prove it, so I felt like making a mix-tape in honor of that. I wanted to create a mix-tape not just about the beach, but one for California in general, as its summer time and the beach is definitely the thing to do right now in California. Here are a few great songs featuring California, many of which I listened to yesterday on the drive to the beach, please enjoy.

  1. California Soul – Marlena Shaw
  2. California Dreamer - Wolf Parade
  3. Dani California - Red Hot Chili Peppers
  4. California - Josh Ritter
  5. California Dreaming - The Mamas and the Papas


 I thought about including California by Phantom Planet, but since that song reminded me of my ex-girlfriend…I just didn’t want to :-).
