My Dad used to play this to me all the time when I was younger, on a cassette tape he had I'll add lol, in one of his cars at the time. The rawness of it sounded brilliant on the tape!

However. let that not take away the genius the song in general, what a tune!  Cool

It struck me only yesterday that the deep minor chords in "WIBN" have roughly the same lie and feel as those in "Three Blind Mice"...

Easing myself back into everyday life, I gave this album a spin while organizing the dishwasher. A fascinating fact
about Surfer Girl is its lineup: the Boys (with both David and Alan), the Crew (including strings), Maureen and
(by implication only) The Honeys ("South Bay Surfer"). Brian's in control and it's a joyous time for the Boys:

It's Tony Asher's 79th birthday today. Many happy returns, sir, and thankyou thankyou thankyou!

This may be his finest hour (in more ways than one):

What a sultry summer song--and criminally underrated too:

Brilliant bass--that is unbelievable! But no, there's no double thread--the other one is after Pet Sounds and "Good Vibrations"...

It's back! I'd always assumed it had been taken down because a DVD was in the pipeline. Evidently not.

This is my absolute favourite BB documentary. Many thanks for linking it.

I believe it should be released on DVD, but sadly it never will. The BBC never mess around when doing a documentary and deliver every time. With that said I'm surprised it never did make it to disc.

It's also my favourite BB doc, too! Very Happy

I was delighted to see "WIBN" used in a newspaper crossword puzzle we do on weekdays. When all the clues are answered a topical word, name or expression appears in the middle of the puzzle. The exact clue was "___ It Be Nice" (Beach Boys).

What a fascinating read! Thanks to c-man for quoting Adam Marsland's astonishing analysis of "The Lord's Prayer".
