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!!!
