First there's the original California Girls by The Beach Boys
And who could forget the classic California Dreaming by The Mamas & The Papas
Getting a little more modern with California Love by 2Pac
And a little bit closer to my actual home, I love L.A. by Randy Newman
Not only can I find songs about California in general, and even Los Angeles, there's a few songs that remind me of my home town of Long Beach specifically.
We have Snoop Dogg's Gin & Juice, which starts with that classic line "With so much drama in the L.B.C." Yes, that's me, lots of drama!
And who could forget Sublime. I thought about going with Doin' Time, since I'm clearly "well-qualified to represent the L.B.C." But I went with April 1992, since one the addresses listed in the police background tape is only a few blocks from the house I grew up in.
