Albert Hammond – It Never Rains in Southern California

I first heard this song at the end of the very last episode of Veronica Mars. She goes to vote in the elections, then walks out and its raining. I love that show, and they always choose good music (I seem to prefer TV shows when they choose music that is similar to my tastes. Strange.)
I love this video, its so very 70’s! I never realised how similar Albert Hammond and his son look (who’s song “Hard To Live In The City” has been posted about before on the blog)

Got on board a west bound 747,
Didn’t think before decidin’ what to do,
Oh that talk of opportunity, TV breaks and movies,
Rang true, sure rang true.

Seems it never rains in southern California,
Seems I’ve often heard that kind of talk before.
It never rains in California,
But girl don’t they warn ya,
It pours man it pours.

Out of work, I’m out of my head, out of self-respect, I’m out of bread.
I’m under-loved, I’m under-fed, I wanna go home.

It never rains in California,
But girl don’t they warn ya,
It pours man it pours.

Will you tell the folks back home I nearly made it.
Had offers but don’t know which one to take.
Please don’t tell them how you found me,
Don’t tell ’em how ya found me,
Gimme a break, Give me a break.

Seems it never rains in southern California,
Seems I’ve often heard that kind of talk before.
It never rains in California,
But girl don’t they warn ya,
It pours man it pours.

  1. Wow, I haven’t heard that one in years, cool song, thanks. For me it’s the early sixties that are gear. UK films from that period are amazing. Such an innocent time.

    A very young bad boy Oliver Reed. At 5:54 in the clip a band (the Marauders?) kicks into a killer song.

    A long forgotten band the Sorrows rocking in Germany.
