Ocean Park Angel
« on: May 25, 2014, 09:45:45 AM »
  Good Afternoon Friends-

 I heard this tune on You Tube and thought it sounded like a hit. My knowledge of latter day Jan & Dean recordings is rudimentary. Can anyone fill me in about the circumstances surrounding "Ocean Park Angel"? After hearing I had a flash of Jan & Dean plugging the record on early 80's SOLID GOLD. Too bad it didn't actually happen!

 Thx,
 Steve

OPA was a damn good song and was right for the late 70's early 80's .

  It sounds better than some of the stuff The Beach Boys were putting out in the 80's. Should have been a Top 40 hit. That's Jan singing, right? Very good vocal.

I wrote the lyrics down and posted them on the internet yesterday because I love this song sooo much! Posting the lyrics on one lyrics site spread the lyrics to every lyrics site out there now when I type it on google! Well maybe it will spread the joy of the song to others from doing that.  ::)


Everyday the sun comes, she goes to play.
 She rides a bike then to the beach where she lay.
 Watching surfers, waiting for waves.
 Hey hey hey

 She looks so good,
 She looks so fine.
 That little ocean park angel of mine.
 She looks so good,
 She’s so divine.
 That little ocean park angel of mine.

 It’s a kind of day, nothing can spoil,
 The smell of palm trees and coconut oil.
 Watching the surfers, waiting for waves.
 Hey hey hey

 She looks so good,
 She looks so fine.
 That little ocean park angel of mine.
 She looks so good,
 She’s so divine.
 That little ocean park angel of mine.

 She looks so good,
 She looks so fine.
 That little ocean park angel of mine.
 She looks so good,
 She’s so divine.
 That little ocean park angel of mine.

"Ocean Park Angel" was written by James Lott and Alan Miles . . . and Don Altfeld helped produce it.
