Songs about Hondas

Always fun to find old newspaper clippings back that tell about songs in which Hondas occur.


This clipping is from a newspaper in The Netherlands, which tells about The Beach Boys and Big Youth and various other Dutch groups. But hey, what can text tell you what the song itself cant? So here they are, The Beach Boys with Little Honda and Big Youth with S90 Skank!

The Beach Boys - Little Honda

The Beach Boys made at the start of their career a large number of songs about motorized transport. For example, they sang about a suped up Chevrolet (Giddyup 409) and an entire record about racing in hotrods (Little Deuce Coupe). Little Honda (1964) was a song about a (and here is the writer mistaken. red.) moped with a four-stroke engine of the S90 type (We all know it's about a PC50, but fine xD. red.) or C50. Band leader Brian Wilson can't remember it clearly (Indeed. red.) and someone yells Go!, the bass guitar idles and we're on the road. (Perhaps the journalist was mixingthis article up with another? red.)

Big Youth - S90 Skank

Pure raggae music about the dangers of driving too fast on mopeds. Singer Big Youth, at the beginning of the 70's just as popular as Bob Marley, made in 1972 a song about the most favorite moped in Kingston, the Honda S90. Funny enough, he never wore a helmet...

The Hondells - Little Honda

Let's not forget about the Hondells, with the same song as The Beach Boys. I need to dig into that to see what's up.
