1965: The Beach Boys released "California Girls"
No, that's not a typo, it's not supposed to say Katy Perry. The Beach Boy's version is pure and simple: tanned skin, sunshine, "dolls" by a palm tree in the sand. Nothing about Daisy Dukes and melting popsicles (???). I gotta say I identify with the Beach Boys version of California Girls more… Too bad they couldn't get Snoop Dogg on the track.
