The only one I remember from the pool they played a lot, "The Locomotion" by Little Eva. It was probably 10 years old when I was hearing once or twice on each trip to the pool. Someone there like it.
The skating rink always played "Troglodite", the one with the Butt sisters in it.
A pool was for the children.
I surfed - I played music - I went to OCC, UCI and CS/Fullerton - I lived in Huntington Beach, CA during the greatest years ever in SoCal (1960-70)- and the whole US!
The Wedge in Newport Beach, CA (many surfers had their heads shoved between their shoulders - instant wheelchair!
The Trestles (notice the sand in the waves - from the bottom, 3 feet down!)
Seal Beach (we called this Tin Can Beach b/o the trash in the water and on the beach)
Killer Dana ([email protected]! I know every one of those streets - circa 1964 or so).
Another place I played -

The pirate outfit wasn't that bad really.
I remember this one girl in a white one piece suit to this day. I was about 15. God was I in love.
Yeah, all us land-locked folk could just go to the beach so easily. We chose to be "children" instead and just went to the pool, not like it was the only option open. Yeah. That's it.
This one is just because I feel like dancing like no one can see me.
