You know me with these “same name, different songs” battles. Here we have three different songs named “On The Beach.”
Title track from his 1974 album.
From their 1973 album Side 3.
Title track from his 1986 album. The song was released as a single twice: in 1986, when it reached #57 on the British singles chart, and in 1988, when it reached #12 in the UK and #9 on the Adult Contemporary chart in the US.
