I was telling a friend this morning that I had put all of my Beach Boys music from cd's onto my iTunes library this weekend, and he said whenever he heard Beach Boys music it always made him envision a more innocent America. It also reminded him of a quote from the writer Henry Miller, "The American ideal is youth--handsome, empty, youth."
~~There's a world where I can go andtell my secrets to....in my room~~
He then went on to query, "Why is it that the hard core Beach Boy fans are always these geeky guys who love delicate harmonies that they insist on singing along to tunelessly...it's like they all want to be cool like Dennis Wilson, sing harmonies like Carl and write words like Brian, but nobody wants to be Mike Love or Al Jardine."
Yes, No, Yes, No, Yes
