I can think of just one 45 that's in the same league (if you don't just look at A sides but both sides): Strawberry Fields Forever/Penny Lane... What do you think?

Don't be cruel / Hound dog

Blue suede shoes / Honey don't

I get around / Don't worry baby

These are some that I would actually put into the same league. There are probably more, but I just can't remember them now...

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.

PRO SHOT BEACH BOYS CONCERTS - LIST


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.

Penny Lane/Strawberry Fields is its' equal IMO.

Eight Miles High/Why is a close contender.

"Penny Lane" and "Strawberry Fields Forever" were both released together as a double A sided single, there was no B side.
