A cover version of the Beach Boys classic written by Brian Wilson and Mike Love, "California Girls" is a track from the album, David Hasselhoff Sings America.
Hasselhoff has been singing and recording music since the 1980s, and the Knight Rider, Baywatch and America's Got Talent star is a beloved legend in Germany and across Europe.
The video of The Hoff singing "California Girls" (below) shows how much he enjoys performing and also how the singer symbolizes California to Europeans.
Sure, the song is a bit cliche' and the performance is cheesy but, hey, I like it --- and I'm not alone.
David Hasselhoff has far more fans around the world than most might ever imagine.
A good-looking California dude who can carry a tune is great, but Hasselhoff has his own star presence that makes his performance fun.
"California Girls" is, of course, one of the greatest songs about California in history and, with a smooth delivery by David Hasselhoff, the global image of the Golden State shines more brightly.
