The North Carolina Coast Feature


Trip Tunes

Carolina Beach Music may have been born in Myrtle Beach, SC, far south of the Outer Banks, but the happy tunes are beloved all along the North Carolina shore and provide the perfect soundtrack for any beach drive. Blending smooth big-band swing with do-wop, boogie, rhythm and blues, and old-time rock and roll, songs often focus on summer love, whether it be for that someone special or just sticking your toes in the sand. Make your tour even more memorable by downloading these classics:

"I Love Beach Music" by the Embers

"Summertime's Calling Me" by the Catalinas

"Be Young, Be Foolish and Be Happy" by the Tams

"39-21-46" by the Showmen

"Ocean Boulevard" by the Band of Oz

"That's Summertime to Me" by Dale Van Horn
