Happy birthday to Brian Wilson, one of my very favorite songwriters!



Brian Wilson was the heart and soul of The Beach Boys.  Brian is also one of my favorite songwriters.

We wish Brian a very happy birthday!  He celebrates another one today!

He started the group, along with his brothers Carl & Dennis, Al Jardine and Mike Love.

Brian's songs are absolutely great.  His arrangements and harmonies are legendary.  

The Beach Boys recorded a long list of hits, from "Surfin" USA" to "California Girls" and "Good vibrations".

It's hard to pick a Beach Boys' classic.  However, "Wouldn't it be nice", from the very celebrated "Pet Sounds" album, still stands as my all time favorite:


"Wouldn't it be nice if we were older
Then we wouldn't have to wait so long
And wouldn't it be nice to live together
In the kind of world where we belong
You know its gonna make it that much better
When we can say goodnight and stay together
Wouldn't it be nice if we could wake up
In the morning when the day is new
And after having spent the day together
Hold each other close the whole night through
Happy times together we've been spending
I wish that every kiss was neverending
Wouldn't it be nice
Maybe if we think and wish and hope and pray it might come true
Baby then there wouldn't be a single thing we couldn't do
We could be married And then we'd be happy
Wouldn't it be nice
You know it seems the more we talk about it
It only makes it worse to live without it
But lets talk about it Wouldn't it be nice
Good night my baby
Sleep tight my baby"
