[email protected](Adrian Denning) There's a great part in the Beach Boys 'Endless Harmony' video where Terry Melcher, just realising he's called Phil Spector a crazy piece of shit RIGHT THERE ON VIDEO!
and just realising he's called Phil Spector ABSOLUTELY INFERIOR TO BRIAN WILSON!! Everyone should buy the 'Endless Harmony' video/dvd just for that moment, really they should. [email protected] the youngest of a music-loving family, I was surrounded by lots of good tunes while I was growing up.
Next time I got the chance, I went to the local music store and bought ALL the Beach Boys they had (Endless Summer, Pet Sounds, and some .99 tape I found in the discount rack).
You take a deep breath and you walk through the doors It's the morning of your very first day You say "Hi" to your friends you ain't seen in a while Try and stay out of everybody's way It's your freshman year and you're gonna be here For the next four years in this town Hoping one of those senior boys will wink at you and say, "You know I haven't seen you around before."'Cause when you're fifteen and somebody tells you they love you You're gonna believe them And when you're fifteen Feeling like there's nothing to figure out Well count to ten, take it in This is life before you know who you're gonna be Fifteen You sit in class next to a redhead named Abigail And soon enough you're best friends Laughing at the other girls who think they're so cool We'll be out of here as soon as we can And then you're on your very first date and he's got a car And you're feeling like flying And you're momma's waiting up and you think he's the one And you're dancing 'round your room when the night ends When the night ends'Cause when you're fifteen and somebody tells you they love you You're gonna believe them When you're fifteen and your first kiss Makes your head spin round but In your life you'll do things greater than dating the boy of the football team But I didn't know it at fifteen When all you wanted was to be wanted Wish you could go back and tell yourself what you know now Back then I swore I was gonna marry him someday But I realized some bigger dreams of mine And Abigail gave everything she had to a boy Who changed his mind and we both cried'Cause when you're fifteen and somebody tells you they love you You're gonna believe them And when you're fifteen, don't forget to look before you fall I've found that time can heal most anything And you just might find who you're supposed to be I didn't know who I was supposed to be at fifteen La la la la la la la La la la la la la la La la la la la la la Your very first day Take a deep breath, girl Take a deep breath as you walk through the doors.
he Beach Boys were one of America's finest goodtime harmony pop-surf-rock bands, climbing to the top of the early `60s charts on the strength of such hits as "Surfin USA," "Surfin Safari," "Surfin," "Surfer Girl," "Butthole Surfin," "Surf Punks," "Surfin the Web," "Surf Surf Surf," "Surfuckyousir" and "Surf Laundry Detergent." However, head songwriter Brian Wilson developed a mean case of paranoid schizophrenia right around the time he began trying to create more "serious" compositions, which is why people generally only talk about Pet Sounds these days.
Pet Sounds convinced me that Brian Wilson was a genius; the only problem with him was all those goofy surf songs he wrote.
I'm glad I eventually discovered that there was life for the Beach Boys AFTER Pet Sounds because I would have missed some good music and I would still think the Beach Boys are weaker than Coors Light.
