The Beach Boys – Barbara Ann

I think the past week’s music might be my favourite of 2012 so far. However, as I have mentioned before, like a magpie I am naturally drawn to that which is shiny and new. It was pointed out to me that despite my enthusiasm recent selections have been a little esoteric and that I shouldn’t neglect the classics. Well, it doesn’t get much more classic than The Beach Boys.

If you give me half a chance I will be sure to tell you that The Beach Boys are much more than sunny pop tunes like Surfing’ USA (Pet Sounds takes my breath away). However when it comes to sunny pop tunes I don’t know many better, and Barbra Ann is a perfect example.

Expect a few more old favourites over the coming days…
