Music track recorded at Gold Star Studios
Brian on the 1990 CD release of "Pet Sounds". "It's about a guy who was crying out because he thought he was too advanced, and that he'd eventually have to leave people behind. All my friends thought I was crazy to do Pet Sounds"
This song is an eerie but brilliant summary of Brian's life.
First use of the Theremin on a rock record (probably)
0:05 Odd laughter sound
2:17 Someone says "Stop"? or something else with an "s" sound
Pet Sounds Live version
