Papa Oom Mow Mow - The Beach Boys

Legbamel Not-Pop

On this craptacular July day, I say, "Beep you!" to the weather and crank up the sunshine music. What better song for mentally flipping the bird to bad weather than The Beach Boys' version of Papa Oom Mow Mow, which makes up in enthusiasm what it lacks in polish. Truly, a more fun song I could not find for today. That may be because I quit looking as soon as I thought of this one, but that's not the point I'm trying to make.

Should you desire more versions of the song, try these Youtube videos, including a truly dreadful version from Gary Glitter. I've posted The Beach Boys because it's the one with which I grew up and they sound like they're having so much fun. Which one is your favorite?

    Erm you may not want to link to the convicted paedophile that is Gary Glitter.

    I do so only to point out the man's complete lack of musical sensibilities and how much of an ass he is. Never would I post anything complimentary about the man.
