No Pier Pressure Track-by-track IX: Tell Me Why

For this writer, this is one of the highlights of the album, featuring enough vocal interplay between Brian and Al that Mike Love may have been persuaded that he could have just missed a session for another Beach Boys album. Anyway it’s down as a Brian Wilson solo song, but Al’s still strong voice is an important part of it. The imagery of the lyrics and lovely harmonies certainly take this song to a special place.
