about

Bloody Mistletoe (Wish it could be summer!) is the new single by The Beach Balls.

Both members of The Beach Balls have been writing and making music for decades. They've just never done it together, before now. Although some say that them not working together was a brilliant idea and the universe wishes things had stayed that way, they both thoroughly enjoyed the cooperation and are actually quite satisfied with the result.
Music lovers beware: they might even do it again.

Welcome to a world that sounds like Christmas, but where it's always sunny.

Merry summer, everybody!

lyrics

Can't stand the bloody mistletoe
I hate the funcking tree
And all of Santa's ho ho ho
Is wasted on me
I wish I could be lying
Under the scorching sun
And have some fun and have some laughs
On the beach with everyone

I wish it could be Summer everyday
With sunny days end endless nights
That never go away
With cocktails, beer and beach balls
Before a little swim
And never mind that Santa Claus
Cause there's no sign of him.

I'm sitting with the family
It's dark and cold outside
No reason to go out at all
It's day, but seems like night
I would feel so much happier.
If I could only say,
I know that it's not summer yet
But at least it's nearly may.

I wish it could be Summer everyday
With sunny days end endless nights
That never go away
With cocktails, beer and beach balls
Before a little swim
And never mind that Santa Claus
Cause there's no sign of him

I look at that pathetic Christmas tree
It seems OK, but deep inside,
It's dying just like me.
The presents of my granny and my aunt
Are nicely wrapped but I'm pretty sure
There is nothing that I want.

I wish it could be Summer everyday
With sunny days end endless nights
That never go away
With cocktails, beer and beach balls
Before a little swim
And never mind that Santa Claus
And never mind that Santa Claus
And never mind that Santa Claus
Cause there's no sign of him

I wish it could be summer everyday
I wish it could be summer everyday
I wish it could be summer
Everyday.

The Beach Balls are:
Kevin Beach: Lyrics, melody, mediocre but enthusiastic lead vocal and occasional musical ideas. Most "padapadap'.
Antonio 'Ton' Ball: Just about everything else, including: bass, arrangement, piano, midi , orchestra, programming, mixing, production and making guest musicians offers they couldn't refuse. Some 'padapadap'. All Christmas bells.

Guest musicians:
Willem 'Gave Gast' Modest: Exquisite jazzy piano (intro)
Songman: Superbly smooth angel choir backing vocals
Peter 'Lowtone' Brooks: Outstanding very sunny and Christmassy saxophone
Phil Martin: Incredibly swinging yet recommendably functional drums

Bloody Mistletoe by The Beach Balls was released on Pilota de Platja Records in November 2016.
