We Got Some Surprising Picks from the Beach Boys on Sunday Jams

We say surprising picks from the Beach Boys for this reason. Everyone seems to think of the Beach Boys as this “Good Times” “Southern California Sweet Vibe” band. And yes, they are that. However, most people overlook the thing that makes them so much more. The melancholy and longing that has been a consistent theme in their songs.

Not to get too deep, but have you actually listened to the lyrics to the songs? Sure you have fun tunes like “Little Deuce Coupe” and those are wonderful. You also have absolute gems like “Do It Again” that sonically rock like nobody’s business, and are also heartbreaking in their sense of loss and trying to hold onto a beautiful moment that can never really be captured again.

Those are the songs we wanna bring to the forefront today. Great Beach Boys songs that might have been dismissed as ear candy that go so much deeper. We gotta give credit where it’s due. The Beach Boys are so much more than people give them credit for. So much more.

      Agreed. And I think everyone overlooks just how deep a lot of their songs are. Brian Wilson will be missed when he’s gone. Dude is brilliant.
