Story about this misheard lyric by: Wisnu Aji

I wondering that Dobie mistakenly refering the Californian rock band, The Beach Boys, in choruses. However, Dobie correctly wrote the song "Drift Away" about music rather than The Beach Boys as he sing: "Give me the beat boys and free my soul. I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away." About this song: Dobie version of "Drift Away" was not the original, the first version of "Drift Away" that written by Mentor Williams was recorded by John Henry Kurtz on his album, "Reunion", released in 1972. Later, in 1973, Dobie covered this song on his album also titled "Drift Away". Dobie version of "Drift Away" was faring better where it reaching #5 on Billboard's Pop Chart and #7 on Canada chart. Entering Dobie into one-hit wonder fame and later "Drift Away" was covered by many artists including Uncle Kracker. Uncle Kracker version was featuring Dobie himself and also entering Uncle Kracker into one-hit wonder fame where it reaching #9 on Billboard's Pop Chart and #25 on New Zealand chart.
