I was asked by the producers of Baywatch to write a song to replace the song “Good Vibrations” by The Beach Boys for this classic Baywatch montage as part of the monumental Baywatch HD Remastering effort. I was honored and a little terrified to replace such an epic song. Here’s what I came up with: “California Dream”
The original Baywatch series was shot on 35mm film, so the producers were able to go back and scan all of the original footage for all 9 seasons and digitize them in high definition. All 350 songs for the classic montages needed to be replaced. No easy task, but certainly a fun one! Many songwriters were involved and it took months to cross the finish line. I was fortunate enough to contribute 21 songs working out of my home studio. I had the pleasure of collaborating with Tariqh Akoni and Tony Sevener, from Summercamp on a few of those songs as well.
