Let me apologize first of all for all of those who live in parts of the world with a real winter. Being back in Los Angeles temperatures in the fifties with a bit of rain is what winter is. However, the idea of California has always been about sunny skies and beach weather in general.
Interesting enough the Mamas and Papas did not originally sing California Dreamin’, but did sing backup vocals for John and Michelle Phillips who had written the song.
I’ve been for a walk (I’ve been for a walk)
On a winter’s day (on a winter’s day)
I’d be safe and warm (I’d be safe and warm)
If I was in L.A. (if I was in L.A.)
