OK, more 80's: This '88 Phillips/McKenzie/Love/Melcher composition about a fictional place was originally titled "The Beer Song". The Beach Boys' last #1 hit. Part of Tom Cruise's "Cocktail" soundtrack. Only B.B. #1 hit not written or produced by Brian Wilson. Brian was not in the recording either. 1st B.B. #1 since "Good Vibrations" in '66, making it then the longest time span (22 yrs.) between #1's for any act.

Yesterday's answer: Dusty Springfield's "I Only Want To Be With You" The British Invasion at its best! Extra credit: Lucecita Benitez "Un Lugar Para Los Dos".
