"I Can Hear Music" as written by Jeff Barry, Ellie Greenwich and Philip Spector....
Ahhhhhh oooooo

This is the way
I always dreamed it would be
The way that it is, oh oh
When you are holding me
I never had a love of my own
Maybe that's why when we're all alone

I can hear music
I can hear music
The sound of the city baby seems to disappear
I can hear music
Sweet sweet music
Whenever you touch me baby
Whenever you're near

Lovin' you
It keeps me satisfied
And I can't explain, oh no
The way I'm feeling inside
You look at me we kiss and then
I close my eyes and here it comes again

I can hear music
I can hear music
The sound of the city baby seems to disappear
I can hear music
Sweet sweet music
Whenever you touch me baby
Whenever you're near

I hear the music all the time, yeah
I hear the music, hold me tight now baby
I hear the music all the time
I hear the music
I hear the music (baby)

Ahhhhh

I can hear music
I can hear music
The sound of the city baby seems to disappear
I can hear music
Sweet sweet music
Whenever you touch me baby

    General CommentThis was written by Jeff Barry, Ellie Greenwich and Phil Spector, and originally recorded by one of Spector's girl groups, The Ronettes. I prefer the Beach Boys' version.

    Pretty self-explanatory meaning: Ever fallen in love and every time she's around, the world just seems to sing? Yeah...

    General Commentagree with blue waves. Lyrically it's a pretty straight forward love song. Melodically, it's gorgeous, so props to Barry/Greenwich/Spector. I don't know how popular either version was back in the day, but it deserves more credit. I'd not heard it until I went on a Beach Boys binge this year. Vocally, Carl is at the top of his game here, just beautiful. I've heard that this is regarded as the point where Carl effectively assumed the position as musical leader within the band.

    General CommentA good song, representative of their Brother/Reprise years I believe.
