      “Fun, Fun, Fun” is one of the best known of The Beach Boys’ 1960s hit songs, and it has kept what I think is a deserved popularity right up to the present day. It is a short song, at only two and a third minutes in length, and it has a pretty simple structure, but its fast pace and surf vibe means that it conjures up that era of American history very well indeed.

However, it became more popular in the UK after being included on the album Shut Down Volume 2. These days, it is one of the all time favourites from this band just about everywhere. Its success is absolutely deserved, as it is a song that really succeeds in bringing to the listener a little slice of sunny southern California.
