I wish they all could be California
I wish they all could be California
I wish they all could be California girls

California Girls (1965) – The Beach Boys

歌曲California Girls,由美國搖滾樂隊The Beach Boys 在1965年唱出。歌曲長達2分46秒,類型屬於Pop Rock 流行搖滾及Art Pop 藝術流行,填詞作曲由組合中Brian Wilson 及 Mike Love 負責,歌曲被收錄於專輯《Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!)》。歌詞的意思是相當簡單直接,主要是讚頌在美國不同州份的女生都有各自的品質。在歌曲中,不斷提及"I wish they all could be California girls",希望他們都可以在California加州。提起加州,為什麼會這麼強調呢?原來加州正正是The Beach Boys 的發跡地。

在當時美國Billboard流行歌曲排行榜,有三甲的地位。此外,在歐洲到全球的流行歌曲排行榜都榜上有名,成為了The Beach Boys 其中一首紅遍全球的歌曲。

歌曲創作者之一Brian Wilson透露,自己是服用了Psychedelic Drug 迷幻藥物,進入Acid Trip 迷幻經歷及在思考女性與西部電影的音樂。

California Girls是受到英國樂隊The Beatles惡作劇作品「Back in the U.S.S.R.」而受到啟發的。另一方面,歌曲亦都對流行文化有影響。有不少歌曲都向該作品致敬:Big Star 的 September Girls、The Magnetic Field 的California Girls及 Katy Perry的 California Gurls。

歌詞方面

填詞作曲由組合中Brian Wilson 及 Mike Love 負責

Well east coast girls are hip
I really dig those styles they wear
And the southern girls, with the way they talk
They knock me out when I’m down there

The mid-west farmer’s daughters
Really make you feel alright
And the northern girls with the way they kiss
They keep their boyfriends warm at night

I wish they all could be California
I wish they all could be California
I wish they all could be California girls

The west coast has the sunshine
And the girls all get so tanned
I dig a French bikini on Hawaiian island
Dolls by a palm tree in the sand

I been all around this great big world
And I’ve seen all kind of girls
Yeah, but I couldn’t wait to get back in the states
Back to the cutest girls in the world

I wish they all could be California
I wish they all could be California
I wish they all could be California girls

I wish they all could be California
(Girls, girls, girls yeah I dig the)
I wish they all could be California
(Girls, girls, girls yeah I dig the)
I wish they all could be California
(Girls, girls, girls yeah I dig the)
I wish they all could be California
(Girls, girls, girls yeah I dig the)

I wish they all could be California
(Girls, girls, girls yeah I dig the)
I wish they all could be California
(Girls, girls, girls yeah I dig the)
I wish they all could be California
(Girls, girls, girls yeah I dig the)
I wish they all could be California
(Girls, girls, girls yeah I dig the)

I wish they all could be California
(Girls, girls, girls yeah I dig the)
I wish they all could be California
(Girls, girls, girls yeah I dig the)
I wish they all could be California
(Girls, girls, girls yeah I dig the)
I wish they all could be
(Girls)
