The day started with “Surfer Girl” by The Beach Boys.

A late start to the music, but it opened with “Little Deuce Coupe”, by The Beach Boys.

Favorite Line:

When something comes up to me he don’t even try
Cause if I had a set of wings man I know she could fly

The music started with a fun, live version of “Barbara Ann” from The Beach Boys.  It starts out with the typical Bah Bah Bah, with someone blurting out “Black Sheep have you any wool”.

The first song from earlier this morning was “Do You Wanna Dance” by The Beach Boys.

Favorite Line:

Do you want to dance under the moonlight
Hold me baby all through the night

I’ve probably watched more documentaries in the past week or so than I have in say the previous 5 years. 

“Making Pet Sounds” by The Beach Boys was one of the first ones I watched. 

It was interesting to see the hands on creation of various songs. I’ve heard audio versions of various takes and hearing them comment, more of this, less of that, but to see and hear it made it a bit more interesting. 

A little bit ago, the music opened with a live version of The Beach Boys classic “Good Vibrations”. It was a fun version with Mike Love urging the crowd to sing along. First it was “just the ladies”, then it was “now the gentleman” and then finally a bit rabid “NOW EVERYBODY”. 

It would be fun to see them live and I wouldn’t pass up a legitimate chance but it wouldn’t be the same without the missing pieces that have left us.
