Jan and Dean 's " Surf City " is the first song with a surf-related title to become a national number-one hit. In late , the Beach Boys had their first chart hit, " Surfin' ", which peaked at number 75 on the Billboard Hot ,  followed by " Surfin' U. The song hit number 14 and helped launch the surf rock craze into a national phenomenon. If a single happened to click, a group would be hastily assembled and sent out on tour. It was an odd blend of amateurism and professionalism.
Maybe you surf, maybe you don't. Everyone who's been to the beach in the last 50 years is influenced by surf culture. If you've ever listened to a Beach Boys record most of the guys in the group didn't surf or donned a pair of baggy shorts or looked wistfully out at the breakers and dreamed of an endless summer of waves and bonfires with the perfect surfer guy or girl on your arm, you can claim a connection to surf culture. That's why even if you're the type who sits on the beach with your toes planted firmly in the sand, the world's best surf spots still matter.
Well, it's yet to be determined if the win of the House will make Democrats more complacent, and less energized, to get out the vote for 2020. That's another real possibility. We won't know until the election happens. If the last 2 years have taught us anything, it's that the electorate is unpredictable. So, in that respect, I'm going to side with the likelihood of the historical precedence of incumbent presidents nearly always winning reelections, even after devastating midterm losses. En masse, people tend to shy away from volatility and change. Rather the evil you know than the one you don't.
