Songs of inadequate swimwear.

Seemed to be a recurring theme in the early 1960s. To celebrate the first day of summer, here are two great beach songs on a similar theme.

Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini (1960) by Brian Hyland. A #1 hit in the summer of ’60.

 

An even more extreme example by a wonderful but sadly underrated group that did many great humorous songs in the late ’50s and early ’60s.

The Girl Without a Top (1964) by The Four Preps.
