"Surf's Up Tonight" as written by Martin Rotsey, Robert Hirst, James Moginie, Peter Garrett and Wayne Stevens....
Wherever the wind blows
When it blows over the sea
The moon's sitting high
Waves will rise
Water shapes
Waves will take you, take you there
Surf's up tonight
Summers on hold
It will go running away
You've gotta move now
Get inside
Take that dive
Get inside today
Surf's up tonight
Now I was lonely
And you were too
I met you down at the waterline
Now there's something we can do
Now there's something left to do
Oh yeah
Surf's up tonight
Wherever you are
When you're coming over land
There's a place where you can throw it away
There's a place you can forget
You get wet, it's free
You get high, you're alive
Surf's up tonight
Come on up tonight
Surf's up tonight

    MemoryReminds me of a time when I was a grom walking home from a mates place. The moon was full and we could see the waves almost like it was early morning. We ran back home, grabbed our boards and got out there. Once we were out there we could barely see a thing. I took off on a wave and pulled in. The lights from the clubhouse lit the barrel up as I got pumped but it’s an experience I’ll never forget it. This song always reminds me of that night. Love the Ouls!

    General CommentAhh, this song is great - the descriptive language is sparse, but richly evocative. Makes me want to go to a surf beach and watch the moon rise.
