  1. I have a longtime Beach Boy fan – and I agree that “Love You” takes a little bit – more due to some of the album’s “simple” lyrics – but your article does a great job putting it into context….FYI, the last Beach Boys song (from “That’s Why God Made The Radio”) is the hauntingly beautiful “Summer’s Gone”…here’s a look at it – https://johnrieber.com/2014/10/10/god-only-knows-all-star-bbc-music-video-summers-gone-for-the-beach-boys-classic-surfs-up/

  2. I like those records where, as you say, the flaws somehow add to the charm.
    I’m intrigued!

  3. Great article. I saw Brian Wilson here in Australia last year on the Pet Sounds tour and he dusted off Honking Down The Highway, a song I never expected to hear live!
