Artist: The Beach Boys
Album: Pet Sounds
Song: “I Know There’s an Answer”
Today’s Song of the Day, comes from Pet Sounds, an album that obviously needs little introduction. If you haven’t listened to it, you know it’s one your probably should, and if you have listened to it, chances are you’re pretty fond of it.
While any track could potentially hold its own as a single, This writer has always been fond of “I Know There’s an Answer.” It seems like it speaks to more listeners than are likely to admit it, and if you don’t feel a bit of yourself in the type of person Brian Wilson sings about, well, we applaud you.
Check out the major influence these guys have had on modern music too — especially artists like Best Coast, Animal Collective (specifically Panda Bear) and even punk acts like Bomb the Music Industry. It reaches into more than you might expect.
