Can anyone confirm if Murry Wilson actually composed this gem?

"His lyrical ability has never been touched by anyone, except for Mike Love."

It only took like 12 years but yes, that song was written by Murry. The same band recorded his "I'll hide my tears" as well. Check out our fellow member Junkstar's site for more information:

But the Beach Boys connections don't end there. Bobby Day (of "Rockin' Robin" fame) was a member of the (Hollywood) Flames, which had it's biggest hit with "Buzz, buzz, buzz" (covered by the Beach Boys during their '84 July 4th concert. The same Bobby Day wrote and recorded the song "Over and over" which was recorded by Mike Love for his first solo album (and re-recorded a couple of years ago). I wonder if the guys were aware of all the Bobby day connections.

a diseased bunch of mo'fos if there ever was one… their beauty is so awesome that listening to them at their best is like being in some vast dream cathedral decorated with a thousand gleaming American pop culture icons.

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.
