SMiLE Track-By-Track IX: Child Is The Father Of The Man

This is a piece of music that can simply be described as beautiful. Child Is The Father Of The Man is the most classical-sounding piece on the album. Of course, it was known to many as the coda to Surf’s Up and some instrumental versions of the stand-alone song existed “unofficially”, but once again, it makes much more sense in the completed version. The brief lyrics have a postive message that fits in well with what ultimately meant to be an uplifting album.
