I guess I am in the mood to blog about music today, hope you don’t mind.
The Beach Boys changed everything when they came out. They were a real voice to the youth of Southern California during 60’s. They sang about surfing, cars, romance and girls…….I guess things haven’t changed soo much. I love to listen to them when I feel down because they are an instant pick up! I have attached so great videos of a few of my favorite songs.
Here is some history of this prolific band:
The group was initially composed of brothers Brian, Dennis and Carl Wilson, their cousin Mike Love, and friend Al Jardine. Managed by the Wilsons’ father Murry, The Beach Boys signed to Capitol Records in 1962. The band’s early music gained popularity across the United States for its close vocal harmonies and lyrics. By the mid 1960s, leader Brian Wilson’s growing creative ambition and songwriting ability would dominate the group’s musical direction. The primarily Brian-composed Pet Sounds album and “Good Vibrations” single (both released in 1966) featured a complex, intricate and multi-layered sound that was a far cry from the simple surf rock of The Beach Boys’ early years.
