Included is just one of the many gems in the Beach Boys catalog. When will the general public wake up to the fundamental advances to popular music put forth by Brian Wilson? His work has already amassed notable repertoire over the decades by maestros such as Leonard Bernstein. Brian's more savvy, counter-culture influenced, mid 60s work such as Pet Sounds and the eluding SMiLE are already highly regarded as pieces of the 20th century western art music tradition.
Popular music forever will owe a currently unpaid return favor to Brian Wilson, for his groundbreaking modular production methods, musique concrete-esque compositions, and entrance of multiple new instruments into its corridor, including the electric theremin.
>Poetic, beautiful even in its obscurity, Surf’s Up is one aspect of new things happening in pop music today. As such, it is a symbol of the change many of these young musicians see in our future.
>Now what does all this mean? I think it’s all part of a historic revolution, one that has been going on for 50 years – only now these young people have gotten control of a mass medium, the phonograph record. And the music on the records, with its noise and its cool messages, may make us uneasy. But we must take it seriously, as both a symptom and a generator of this revolution. We must listen to it, and to its makers, this new breed of young people with long hair and fanciful clothing.
People underestimate just how much SMiLE, released for Chirstmas 1966 could have changed public perception of capabilities and limiations of the entire medium of popular music.
It was generating talk like no other. This was ready to get the Beach Boys immediately put to serious discussion in every music hall, observatory, you name it, from LA to London.
SMiLE even has evidence of contaiting musique conrete, it sends my penis into a raging fury ever time I hear the drill loops in "Workshop"
>Derek Taylor facilitated the Beatles with Smile acetates while they were in progress with their 1967 LP Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band, explaining: "They heard Smile in part—the first eight-track—up at Armen Steiner's studio at Yucca and Argyle. It was after Brian found out that they had been in the studio, we heard. We walked into the place and heard that the Beatles had been there.
sgt pepper is better in every way than smile
probably pissed off brian when he heard abbey road side 2
horns and bass plunking in the breaks of child is the father of the man, or the part of Look song for children which references the good vibrations backing vocals
>you will NEVER own an autographed Brian Wilson 1966 action figure
i combined them because carry that weight reprises your never give me your money and golden slumbers, cuz they're all sorta one thing, and i didnt include the end because thats its own song sort of
anyways, i think its a fair comparison because both are fairwells in a way and im just proving my point that the beatles did it better
Oh yeah this is fake
Now I remember
>expecting revolutionary, deeply emotional music
>get a lame-ass singing about munching on vegetables and staying in shape
this is some shit your uncle who wears his pants up to his nipples would listen to
