If some people didn't tell you, you'd never know they'd been away on a vacation.
"It isn't what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about." Dale Carnegie
Kokomo by The Beach Boys
The name "Kokomo" in the song is imaginary, and does not refer to the city in Indiana. The name was later applied to resorts in Sandals Cay, Jamaica, and Grassy Key, Florida. This song was written by John Phillips, Scott McKenzie, Mike Love and Terry Melcher and recorded by The Beach Boys in 1988.
It was released as a single in 1988 at Ekektra Records and became a No. 1 Hit in the United States, Japan and Australia (where it topped for about two months). The single was released to coincide with the release of the Tom Cruise movie Cocktail, and its subsequent soundtrack.
