I'm really enjoying listening to this music. You can babble about nostalgia or looking back on a time of greater innocence of you like, but when you get right down to it, Beach Boy music is Fun. I mean, really - bouncy music with tight harmonies, what's not to love? And I'm not buying the innocence bullshit, either. They may have been more subtle in what they were singing about, but I'm saying he wasn't wanting Rhonda to hold his hand in order to forget the girl that dumped him. Or not dating so he doesn't leave hist best girl home on a Saturday night while he goes out in his hotrod and picks up chicks. Because, you know, he's just going to drive them up and down the drag and then let them out of the car. Yeah.
I do have to wonder if at any point in their career, they ever decided that they were too old to sing "Be True to Your School".
I totally dig the car in the picture. Yes, I wanted Archie's jalopy, too.
I think I'll let it go with that. After all, this music isn't going to just listen to itself, you know.
