Artist: Widespread Panic
Album: Space Wrangler
Perfect for a warm, sunny day, this jam will have you day dreaming about the beach and the nostalgia of summer time. Over an upbeat shaker rhythm, acoustic guitar, and WSP’s signature style of electric guitar, the words to this song will have you smiling. Great for cruising with the windows down or cracking open a beer, the fun, catchy guitar riff and laid back rhythm go perfectly with the lyrics; ” I like coconuts, You can break them open They smell like ladies lying in the sun.” If I had my way, I’d play Coconuts for everyone!
Check out this video from Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado, one of the last times the song was played with Original guitarist Michael Houser before he passed away a few weeks later.
