Brian Wilson used Non-Traditional Chord Structure… it’s super effective!
Van Dyke Parks used “Over And Over The Crows Cry Uncover The Cornfields” … critical hit!

Is it just me or does this piece by Marie Kazalia look very similar to the album art from The Beach Boys 2012 album, which came out just several months before Kazalia made this piece?
Happy Birthday Brian Wilson
Well, okay original member of the Beach Boys following me on something I didn’t even know I’m signed up for.
The Beach Boys - God Only Knows (1966)
Beautiful song from a beautiful album sung by a beautiful voice belonging to Carl Wilson. There’s this great video from (I think) the early eighties in which Brian actually sings his brother’s song, for perhaps the first time live, as Carl was on a solo tour. I’ll try to queue it up later.
Am I the only one who enjoys Dennis Wilson’s singing?
You are not alone.
Song of the Day: The Beach Boys - Don’t Worry Baby. This is Brian Wilson’s attempt to match his favorite Phil Spector song “Be My Baby”. From a more technical standpoint, his key changes are perfect. You know this because It’s really hard to pin down where they happen. His melody in the opening verse goes from on the beat to syncopated (on the “up” beat) and slows down doing it. And it’s just so damn pretty.
Not to mention one of the first times in pop music a hit song didn’t have all root notes in the bass.
The Apples in Stereo covering the Beach Boys’ “Heroes and Villains”
The Apples for obvious reasons have great appreciation for the Beach Boys. There’s this amazing, heartfelt, but incredibly awkward interview Robert Schneider once did with Brian Wilson. I’ll see if I can find it.
Oh my god the beach boys at the end of love actually
Love Actually is actually really good
