Happy birthday to Brian Wilson



Brian Wilson started The Beach Boys with his brothers, Carl and Dennis. They added Mike Love and Al Jardine. They were one of the most successful US pop groups of our generation.

Along with Lennon-McCartney and the Gibb brothers, Brian Wilson is one of my favorite pop music songwriters.

In fact:

"Wilson was the primary songwriter in the Beach Boys, also functioning as the band's main producer, composer, and arranger.

In 1988, Wilson and his bandmates were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which refers to Wilson on its website as "One of the few undisputed geniuses in popular music."

In 2008, Rolling Stone Magazine published a list of the "100 Greatest Singers of All Time, and Wilson was ranked at #52." (Wikipedia)

Brian's work includes "California Girls" and "God only knows".

My favorite one is still "Wouldn't it be nice":
