Music Mondays: Kokomo

“I believe that music is God's voice.” – Brian Wilson 

One of my favorite songs to run to is Kokomo by The Beach Boys. The song has a nice easy, relaxing beat which makes it fun to run to.  The story behind this song is that the Beach Boys are Pam’s favorite group and Kokomo is her ring tone on my iPhone. For her birthday last year I took her to the Beach Boys 50th Anniversary Tour at the Chicago Theatre.

Here is the video from YouTube featuring along with the Beach Boys Tom Cruise and honorary Beach Boy John Stamos.
What are some of your favorite songs to run to?
