Originally posted by ana87:To everyone interested, this song was written by Ryan Tedder and Brent Kutzle, it was recorded in OneRepublic studio, it was meant to be on their album Oh My My, but eventually they didn't put it on the album. Since then their fans have been asking what happened to this song called ''West Coast'' & now we can only think that Ryan brought the demo to U2, then they re-wrote the song, called it ''Summer Of Love'' & left the chorus part from the West Coast. My opinion it's the best song on this album, but Ryan & Brent should be credited as songwriters too. Also you could see in the credits of the song names of 1R team like Tyler Spry, Nate Lotz, Noel Zancanella... It's because they were recording the West Coast for 1R & finished doing Summer of Love for U2.
