This song may be best known (or notorious) as the disco megamix on LA Light Album, but in it’s better incarnation, it was one of the R&B flavored originals that made Wild Honey such a breath of fresh air. Wild Honey saw the resumption of the Brian Wilson and Mike Love songwriting partnership, and the combination of music and lyrics works well, driven by Brian’s soulful late 60s voice. The disco mix dredged out all the original soul of the track, but as in many cases, the original is the best.
