D'awww. The Beach Boys were my first favorite band as a child - played my mom's 'Endless Summer' vinyl to death at about five years old - and this is a favorite of mine too. Only song I can think of that's made me cry is Unchained Melody by the Righteous Brothers, which made me think of the pet that died while it was playing years ago.
@shiningsun2k oh bless you sweetie! I also love that song (Top Gun) I don't believe I had a song which made me cry as a result of a pet...
I was young when it happened and it ruined the song for me for years. I loved the song up until that point and it surprised me because I did not expect the death of a kitten we'd only had for a few weeks to have that kind of effect.
Simply.....one of the best songs ever made...Sublime.
i've heard it described as "the perfect pop song." can't disagree.
thanks for kind comment
Sublime perfection. 'Pet Sounds' remains an apogee of POP! genius.
What @Bukowski said! Wait, is that an admission that Brian Wilson is a genius?! :)
@jackietheripper No. 'Pet Sounds' is a stroke of genius, made by a truly great artist.
@jackietheripper I can actually feel myself backing into a corner here. (wink)
A song that would always be in my top ten.
@MadameZia Madame, a masterpiece of pop loveliness ;)
Classic tune Big like.
Fabulous album and yes brings a tear or two for me too! x x
