California Girls [HD] - David Lee Roth

18933 ratings | 4359274 views
Groovy! "California Girls" is a song by American rock band The Beach Boys, featured on their ninth studio album Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!) (1965). Written by band-members Brian Wilson (who conceived the song during an LSD trip) and Mike Love, the song features contrasting verse-chorus form. Upon its release as a single, "California Girls" reached #3 on the Billboard Hot 100. It is one of The Beach Boys' most famous songs and has been included on countless greatest hits compilations. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame included the song in its list of the "500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll". In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine ranked it 71st on its list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. David Lee Roth covered the song on his 1985 EP Crazy from the Heat (with background vocals contributed by Beach Boy Carl Wilson along with Christopher Cross), and like the original it topped at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100, which was the same position that the Beach Boys original version reached twenty years prior to Roth's cover. Crazy from the Heat was released while Roth was still a member of Van Halen. All four songs on the EP are cover versions. David Lee Roth (born October 10, 1954) is an American rock vocalist, songwriter, actor, author, and former radio personality. Roth was ranked nineteenth by Hit Parader on their list of the 100 Greatest Heavy Metal Singers of All Time. Roth is best known as the original and current lead singer of the southern California-based hard rock outfit Van Halen. After departing Van Halen in 1985 Roth first enjoyed a successful career as a solo artist, which originated while still a member of that band and yielded several RIAA-certified Gold and Platinum records. After more than two decades apart, Roth rejoined Van Halen in 2007 for a North American tour that became the most successful in the band's history and one of the highest grossing of that year. Roth has remained the lead singer of Van Halen since his 2007 return and is currently rumored to be recording new material with the band for their first album since 1998. The iconic music video for the cover, directed by Pete Angelus and Roth, was released in February 1985. Roth stars as a tour guide, showing tourists the beach and swimsuit models. One of these tourists is played by Jane Leeves, who went on to play Frasier's Daphne Moon. The scenes follow the lyrics with bikini-clad women from all regions of the United States. An often imitated scene has Roth dancing down a sidewalk bordered by models frozen in mannequin poses. It was nominated for several 1985 MTV Video Music Awards. In an interview with Howard Stern, Roth explained that he edited the video while wearing thick skiing goggles which greatly impaired his vision. Each time the editor would increase the red saturation, Roth would tell him to turn it higher, until finally proclaiming; "Now THAT'S red!"

When i was a kid i lost 1.00 to my sister because I thought the lyrics were: "Please Stay off the Beach California Girls." The logic being that the singer (Wilson or Roth) was so into girls from California that he wanted them all to himself and if they went to the beach in their bikini everyone would see how hot they were and would pick em up. Keep in mind we were listening to this song on a crappy Sanyo TV and the sound wasn't superb.

what a complete tosser DLR is
I hate to sound like a "born in the wrong generation" hipster, but Baby Boomer women are so freaking gorgeous and awesome. These ladies must've been like 25 in this video so in their mid to late 50s now
Any other 90s kids miss when VH1 played this all the time? I didn't watch tv until 1991 but I remember VH1 playing it way more than MTV did

I remember waiting to watch this video when it was being shown on Solid Gold. The twelve year old in me did not pick up on the innuendo. At 1:58, DLR stands in front of a bikini clad woman, and is peeling the leaves from a corn cob. How naughty.

I can't even begin to explain how cool I thought Diamond Dave was! He encapsulated everything that was hot in the 80's. If you were building a fantasy band, this had to be the frontman. He said something one time that I will never forget when Van Halen's 1984 came out..."And I will say, this record comes with a warning, DO NOT PUT THIS RECORD ANYWHERE NEAR YOUR COLLECTION, BECAUSE IF YOU DO, IT IS SO HOT IT WILL MELT THEM!" Who else could say that shit?? I still love Dave and all he did for my time spent growing up in the 80's...Thanks man!!

I don’t know 🤷‍♀️ if this happened because David L R got kicked out of Van Halen, or the band ended, or even he decided to go solo, but this obviously 🙄 has to come second to The Beach 🏖 Boy’s original version.
