Like a sound you hear
That lingers in your ear
You can’t forget
From sunrise to sunset

It’s all in the air
You hear it everywhere
No matter what you do
It’s gonna get a hold on you

California soul
California soul
They say the sun
Comes up every morning

And if you listen carefully
The winds that ride
On the high tide
Whistle a melody

So the people started to sing
And that’s how the
Surf gave birth untold to
California soul

California soul
When you hear the beat
You wanna pat your feet
And you’ve gotta move cause

It’s really such a groove
Puts a brand new kind of
Thinking in your mind
And you can’t go wrong

‘Cause you’re happy all day long
California soul
California soul
They had the melody and the beat

But it still didn’t seem complete
Until they saw two lovers kissing
They knew just what was missing
So happy they were

Rocking and reeling
Because they added
That loving feeling
To California soul

California soul
California soul
Now if they move you
Will it move you

It can groove, you, baby
California soul
California soul, yeah
California soul

Satisfaction, darling

I love music. It’s what gets me going in the morning, motivates me throughout the day, and supports me during emotional times. This song is one of those songs that hits my sweet spot. You know, that spot that just gets you grooving and cheesing so hard you can’t sit still? There’s not necessarily a reason for it, but whatever it is, California Soul just hits that good nerve and makes me happy. 

This soulful groove is also the inspiration for my latest style post. I love the combination of flares and vintage velvet. Even though this was shot in Boston, I truly felt like I was California dreaming the entire time. Want to recreate this look for yourself? Shop the links below:
