    General CommentThis is my favorite post-1960's Beach Boys song and contains some truly great background "ooohh's" over the lead vocal, sung by Carl Wilson when released in 1978. Brian wrote this in the early 1970's as almost a re-write of "Surfer Girl", and indeed, it is in the same key (D) and on the fade-out, you can hear the first four wordless high-harmony notes of the intro to "Surfer Girl" coyingly being sung. The harmonies, although beautiful, are among the simplest of any Beach Boys recording and the lead vocal IS the shortest and easiest to sing of any song in the Beach Boys' entire repertoire.

    General CommentThis is probably one of the most under rated beach boy songs.

    General CommentThis song proves what makes the Beach Biys so good when they stick with the sound they were known for. It is such a simple, easy song, but is very good and memorable because they give it the treatment they gave their songs in their 'golden era'.
    It's actually a very hollow song content-wise - it just sounds good. It was enough to get it to chart at #40 in 1979, but not good enough to meet the high standards of my Beach Boys playlist.
