Hi, dear friends !

I have to admit I have been down to Spain for
a long time, but I wanted to do a little
surf tune nonetheless (as soon as I got home) !
I discovered that it is possible to surf in the
mediterranean though the really big waves are
on the west coast of Portugal in the Atlantic
(Nazaré)

THE SURFERS (Words and Music by Norman)

We took a plane to sunny Spain, to bath in the warmin´sun
we went along, my Darlin´and me, headin´for the fun
Down on the beach we spent our time, surfin´all day long
glidin´gracefully over the waves along

Can´t recall we´ve ever been much happier than when
ridin´all those giant waves, made us feel so great again

This is the only way for us, to feel alive and free
This is the place we always wanna be

Standin´on that board will make you feel the freeze
stiffnin´all your body as you´re bendin´down your knees

So, come with me let´s surf along, until the break of dawn
It feels so good, not to be alone

solo

We´re the surfers, riders of the clear blue ocean sea
always there, just as you can see
come with me
come with me

Another classic Dani tune.
The only nit I have is that the Dire guitar sitting on the right doesn't seem to work for the song except in the solo.
Loved you bvox.

On a scale of 1 to 10 this song is a hanging 10!

Excellent surf song

Typical excellent vocal, harmonies, and mix

Two thumbs up

Hi Dani,

Now summer is coming you can stay in Finland for a while, I suppose?
Didn't know you are such a great surfer! I thought you would lay on a sunbed on your porch or the beach, but you are a super active pensionado...

Very nice song and lovely rhythme. The song has the kind of mood I expected you to have overthere and not your surfing actions.
I have one little remark on the vocals; on my headphone they sounded a bit too close to the mike. I heard a bit of 'mud' if you know what I mean.
But as I said, you can hear it just a littlebit and no one else mentioned it, so...

Have a nice day,
Hans

Oh, I love this, Dani. Great vocal that works so well with the bg singers. What a fun song, and so well done with BiaB. Such a happy rhythm and changes. A wonderful invitation to enjoy the surf. A friend of mine from the mid 60s always reminds me, "Remember when we wrote like 5000 surfer songs?" To which my reply is, "Well, we wrote one surfer song 5000 times." We never wrote anything this good. Thanks, Dani. Feel the breeze, dude.

Dani, really like the melody and chord progression. That guitar sounds simple, yet adds so much to the sound. Good job, enjoyed it.
