I hope you'll check out my new video on YouTube for the classic tune 'The Little Girl I Once Knew'. It's a great record that doesn't get the attention it deserves.

It is agreat record, I agree. Should've been a bigger hit imo. But I wonder how they would have performed it on stage. It seems even harder than "Good Vibrations".

Wonderful video! I hope you won't run out of ideas  Wink

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.

I understand what you're saying in terms of the 1966 time frame, but clearly Brian and his band figured out how to do it quite successfully some years later. I think if Carl had put his mind to it (of which there is no evidence that such ever happened way back when) he probably could have figured it out. Though he'd have needed to schlep (or rent) an organ around in those pre-synth days.

Amazing, though, how a song that made it to #20 could just disappear from view. It was included on one of the Pickwick LPs in the early 70s, with the usual strange assortment of time periods and styles. That was where I first ran across it, recognizing after a few listens that it was not too many notches down from GV (which was also on that disk).

During the process of creating this video, I grew to fully appreciate the stunning production of this record in a way that I never had before. You get to listen to the song a LOT of times! The change in key on the third chorus was such a great move on Brian's part to take this record to it's peak. This record was never a favorite of mine. Thought it was kind of cringey: a guy going after a girl. But a viewer suggested that I do it, and I'm glad I did. Now I see the song differently and I'm proud of the video that I made for it and hope others think I did it justice.
