I was chuckling to myself because this is the dance I would do in the kitchen when I was cooking dinner with my daughters when they were teenagers. Yes, they laughed at me. If you watch the blond, she got moves I would have stolen, I'm sure. The only dance contest I ever won was doing this dance with, probably the only guy that would dare.
I did catch an episode of "The Talk" when Leah Remini was complaining about her mother doing this dance at an Ozzy Osbourne concert they had all recently attended. I say ....good for her!
I was looking for American Bandstand and did find The Beach Boys.
My babysitter watched American Bandstand in the 1950's when my mother was going to "Beauty School" and he (which was unusual I think) watched us 3 kids. Maybe that is where I became interested in music. I certainly became interested in the dances then.
The Beach Boys were huge in the mid 1960s. They sang of summer, surfing, hot cars, and girls.
I lived in the cold north and had dark hair. I wanted to live in California and have blond hair. I wanted to be a surfer girl. Didn't we all?
