Jan & dean - surf city / ride the wild surf


The genre reached national exposure when it was represented by vocal groups such as the Beach Boys and Jan and Dean . [13] Their "vocal surf" style drew more from African-American genres such as doo wop with its scat singing and tight harmonies. Dale is quoted on such groups: "They were surfing sounds [with] surfing lyrics. In other words, the music wasn't surfing music. The words made them surfing songs... That was the difference ... the real surfing music is instrumental." [14]

Born William Jan Berry in Los Angeles in 1941, Berry scored his first hit in 1958 with "Jennie Lee," released under the name Jan and Arnie. He and high school friend Dean Torrence began their string of hits in the early Sixties. Unlike the more popular band they influenced, the Beach Boys, Jan and Dean did not do much touring because Berry was busy studying to be a doctor. Those plans, as well as his group's, were derailed in 1966, when Berry's speeding Corvette crashed into a parked truck in Beverly Hills.
