A Listmania! list by mijacogeo22 "mijacogeo22" (USA)
The list author says: "Like oldies? I do! Here are some suggestions if you'd like to check out the style known as Carolina (or East Coast) beach music.. not to be confused with West Coast surf music! See my other Listmanias for that, as well as other related genres from this same era."

The list author says:
  "Homegrown in South Carolina, the Swingin' Medallions had a hit in 1966 with the frat-friendly sound of "Double Shot (of My Baby's Love)," now a staple among beach classics with its famous organ hook."

2.  Music to Shag By by Various Artists
The list author says:
