That’s Why God Made The Radio Track-by-track VIII: Beaches In Mind

I was challenged in the comments section of this blog to be more forthright in my opinions, so here goes: I think this is the weakest track on the album. Which is not to say it is unlistenable, but simply undistinguished in the exalted company of much of the rest of the album.

Similarly to Spring Vacation and Isn’t It Time, the track tries to invoke the good times from the past, but doesn’t quite have the melodic quality of the previous two to make it truly memorable. However, the hook is still good enough to stick in the head, and it does provide a final, innocent trip to the beach before we start moving into the deeper territory of the last third of the album.

    Hard to believe this even made the cut.
