One of the most beautiful songs ever written, in my opinion (and Paul McCartney’s), was being fine-tuned in the studio at around about this time back in 1966: the Beach Boys’ ‘God Only Knows’.
Have a listen to it.
Yes, you know what’s coming: Beach Boys songs for David to cover, please.
Why not this one?
I think ‘The Warmth of the Sun’ would be a good one. ‘Tears in the Morning’? ‘Don’t Worry, Baby’? There’s an excuse for David to give the saxophone a blast on ‘I Know There’s an Answer’ (or ‘Hang On to Your Ego’, if you prefer).
Thank you very much for the birthday messages left for David last week, by the way. If you’d like to submit a belated one, please leave it here.
There are lots of other blog birthdays this month, starting today with Christine and Wrightee – Happy Birthday to you both.
