In 1963, Jan Berry and Brian Wilson (the Beach Boys) wrote a surf song. Brian Wilson had already written a draft of this song, and he also had written Surfin’ U.S.A.. Wilson played the last song to Jan, and he wanted to record the song, but Brian Wilson wanted to record it with the Beach Boys. He then gave the draft of Surf City to Jan Berry.
