Rampage dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"Rampage" is an unusual song, significantly off the beaten path, infectious, danceable, and way fun. Calls of "let's move," "let's groove," and "rampage!" are shouted as appropriate. You can just picture the audience doing the surfers stomp at some teen dance in old LA. This track goes really well played loud with the top down (or windows open for the convertibly challenged) on surf route 101. It is one of those magical moments when just a few notes combined with a backtrack such that its very simplicity is its power. The song is written by Ray Manczarek. Magnificent.
