"Some Beach" is a song written by Rory Lee Feek and Paul Overstreet, and recorded by American country music singer Blake Shelton. It was released in July 2004 as the second single from Shelton's album Blake Shelton's Barn & Grill, and became his third number one hit. The song reached the top of the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for four weeks.
The narrator deals with frustrations, such as being cut off in traffic and having to wait at the dentist's office, by wishing that he were on "some beach, somewhere." The song's title is a double entendre, playing on a Southeastern U.S. dialectal form of the epithet "son of a bitch" ("som' bitch").
The music video was directed by Peter Zavadil and features Shelton driving a pickup truck down a freeway, trying to park the truck, and going to the dentist.
"Some Beach" debuted at number 51 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs for the chart week of August 7, 2004.
