50 years of teen bliss: Serenaded by the Beach Boys
A pre-teen me once learned how to slow dance to “Surfer Girl.”
Picture a middle school auditorium circa 1987. I was that retainer-wearing girl at the school dance, clumsily shuffling along to the Beach Boys classic with a nervous boy about a full arms-length away from me.
It was an awkward moment, yet my heart still flutters when I hear those harmonies.
So when I learned CNN’s Talk Asia had booked the Beach Boys for an interview in Hong Kong, I jumped at the chance to interview Al Jardine, Mike Love and Brian Wilson.
