Explore Brian Wilson, The Beach Boys and more!

"She knew how to gather the forest when. God reached softly and moved her body. One golden locket quite young. And loving her mother and father." -Wonderful

On July 4, 1964, The Beach Boys started a two week run at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart with "I Get Around". This was the group's first #1. Brian Wilson and Mike Love wrote the song, which is noteworthy for its back-to-front structure—it starts with a chorus and has two short verses. The "B: side of the singles was another hot Beach Boys tune, "Don't Worry Baby." I got to see them several times in Birmingham, Alabama!!!
