Add some music to your day
I’m sure there are hundreds of blogs celebrating Brian Wilson’s 65th birthday today but I couldn’t let it pass without adding my contribution. The word genius is overused these days but in Brian Wilson’s case it is entirely justified. There have been several books written by people much more eloquent than me about it so I won’t even try to compete on that level. I’ll just let the music do the talking with four (almost) random selections.
mp3: Beach Boys - Kiss Me Baby stereo version of the classic Beach Boys Today track.
mp3: Beach Boys - Wonderful from the Smile sessions.
mp3: Beach Boys - Time To Get Alone Carl Wilson singing a Brian Wilson song - possibly the best combination in popular music.
mp3: Beach Boys - Til I Die
Buy Beach Boys and Brian Wilson here. Most of these albums are available for £5 if you shop around.
Be sure to check back on Friday when I will be celebrating the birthday of another musical hero.
