Do It Again

Master Number: #71536

Originally appeared on: 20/20

This song attempted to re-create the nostalgia of the Beach Boys' "fun in the sun" era. It was reasonably succesful in this, becoming the 17th and last top 20 hit of the 60's for the group. It was even more succesful in the UK, where it became the group's second (and last to date) number one.
The hammering section at the end comes from the unreleased "Smile" song "I'm In Great Shape (The Woodshop Song).
The song leads off "20/20", the last album of the group's Capitol period and their last of the 60's. It can be likened to the "White Album", both in terms of the variety of music and the Manson connection (see "Never Learn Not To Love"). Critical opinion of this album differs, but most agree that there are moments of genius on the album.
