This opener for "Pet Sounds" sets the scene for the rest of the album with great vocals, great instrumentation, great production and lyrics that contrast hope and self-doubt. The change of pace and harmonies at the end is one of the sublime moments of Brian's music.
Recorded at Gold Star studios
Dennis sings background in a special way, cupping his hands
On soundtrack of "The Big Chill."
Rob Mc Cabe's favorite Beach Boys' song
0:26 Wood hitting against another piece of wood, not on Capitol CD
