Brian’s Hidden Beauties CLI: I Do

Today is my wedding day. So this song is pretty appropriate for today’s hidden beauty!

 I Do is the final development of the melody that was used on the first Beach Boys album in the song Country Fair. The recycling of the tune was definitely for the better, with a powerful production and a perfect wedding lyric.  Although recorded by the Beach Boys, their version remained unreleased until the CD two-fer release of Surfer Girl/Shut Down 2, which was a pity given that it was far better than a lot of the filler on the latter album. The privilege of originally releasing the song was given to the Castells, but its the Beach Boys own version that is now the definitive version of what should be a wedding classic.
