"Too dumb for New York City, too ugly for L.A."

« on: July 14, 2018, 02:33:56 PM »

Since I first saw that "Summer dreams" movie about the Beach Boys, I can't get that song out off my head that plays when "Dennis" pick up "Karen" in the bar. I even heard it once on radio years ago but they didn't say who sang it and what it's called. So maybe one of our members here can help.

Here are some of the lyrics that I can understand, and how they are heard in the scene (the song has already started before we can hear it in the movie) .


Probably part of the chorus:


Wasting my life and my time in (...)town and it brings me down
and I do anything just to bring one more smile to your face.



Part of a verse:

The prettiest girl that I ever did see
Makes me st(..) over there though/'cause I think that she's smiling at me.
(Fl...) make you mine but I don't think the words are right
I guess the tequila is talkin' tonight



This seem to be the first part of the chorus:


Having (spend ...) my life in tequila town
(...) got ever get out of this place
Wasting my life and my time in (...)town and it brings me down
and I do anything just to bring one more smile to your face



It sounds a little like Jimmy Buffet or the Bellamy Brothers. Mid-tempo and a I-II-V chord progression in the verses.

a diseased bunch of mo'fos if there ever was one… their beauty is so awesome that listening to them at their best is like being in some vast dream cathedral decorated with a thousand gleaming American pop culture icons.

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Maybe you or someone else can link a clip that includes it. I'd love to have a go at finding it.

Well, I found a site yesterday that streams the movie. But I don't know if it is against the board's rules to post the link here.

I was wondering--might it be by one of Foskett's bands? I believe he was responsible for the music...

Did Jeff start in 1970s? I doubt Jeff's song somehow played in the bar when Dennis met Karen, looks suspicious. Maybe Jeff added it into film soundtrack to advertise his band. If, indeed, JK's guess is correct.

I don't think it has anything to do with Jeff. It doesn't sound like him at all. I would guess it's more along "classic rock" lines, although it's got more of a country feel. I also heard it on radio once (a classic rock station).

Yep. I doubted too in the previous post.

I just recorded the sound bit from the movie. I guess that should be no problem for the board. You can download the short piece here:

Best guess from me

Wasting my life and my time in the (real)? town and it brings me down
and I'd do anything just to bring one more smile to your face.

The prettiest girl that I ever did see
Makes me stare over there cause I think that she's smiling at me.
Bright light, make her mine but I don't think the words are right
I guess the tequila is talkin' tonight

I've been spending my life in ? town
dont think I'll ever get out of this place
Wasting my life and my time in (...)town and it brings me down
and I 'd do anything just to bring one more smile to your face

Might be the name of a town? debrille town?

Thanks, Big Dinner. You're a hero. We'll get there in the end...

I think the town is "tequila town". It woud fit with the other mention of that drink. But I could be wrong. There are other songs called "Tequila town" but I didn't find this one.

I followed up that lead too. I also went to Rhymezone to check out words that sound similar to Peadar's "debrille town". I also checked through lists of US cities beginning with B, D and T--all to no avail.

Let's keep hoping.

Thanks, FHCS. Jimmy Buffet sings about Rio Town in "First Look" but that's the only relevant musical connection I could make...
