In 1988, the Beach Boys recorded Kokomo for the soundtrack to the movie Cocktail starring Tom Cruise. The song became their first number one song on the Hot 100 charts since 1966’s Good Vibrations. Kokomo was also included on their 1989 album Still Cruisin’, which featured both recent and classic Beach Boys songs. The music video for Kokomo featured clips from the movie along with the band and frequent live guest John Stamos playing the steel drum.
