    • Hey John, I’d like to add that as of today you’re the only reader to correctly answer the question!
      Well done!

  1. This is tough, since some folks, including The Ventures, do not consider Walk Don’t Run as instrumental surf music. Nevertheless, King of The Surf Guitar stands out as the only song with a vocal.
    1) “Apache” Jorgen Ingmann (far superior to The Shadows’ version)

    2) “Miserlou” Dick Dale

    3) “Mr. Moto” Belairs

    4) “Out of Limits The Marketts

    5) “Penetration The Pyramids (at the time the only surf band with an African-American in it)

    6) “Pipeline” The Chantays

    7) “Surfbeat” Dick Dale and his Deltones

    8) “The King Of The Surf Guitar” Dick Dale and his Deltones

    9) “Walk Don’t Run” The Ventures

    10) “Wipeout” The Surfaris

    • Hey John,
      As usual you are correct on all your comment! I get what your saying about “Walk Don’t Run, in fact I considered using “Don’t Run 64” but that messed with the status within the question…I also agree with your comment about “Apache”
      Thanx John!

  2. I’m guessing today…
    Wipeout has a drum solo.
    How about The Lonely Surfer?
    Apache- The Shadows
    Miserlou-Dick Dale
    Mr. Moto – The Bel Airs
    Out of Limits- The Ventures
    Penetration – The Pyramids
    Pipeline – The Chantays
    Surf Beat – Dick Dale
    King of the Surf Guitar- Dick Dale
    Walk Don’t Run – The Ventures

    • Hey J.C.
      Sooo, as per the question, which title doesn’t belong annd why ? and what song would you add ?
