Pop Perfection

Here are the Beach Boys performing "God Only Knows". Now, before you respond with "I hate those sell-outs, they play at baseball games & have John Stamos playing percussion", please listen to this song. It was originally released on "Pet Sounds", which to my ears (and many others) is a masterpiece. There's this guy named Paul McCartney (maybe you remember him from the Beatles), who says this particular tune is the best pop song ever written. I'm not going to second that, but I think this one is definitely in the top 20. Enjoy.

as a proud owner of a pet sounds cd, i've got this song in my top 5. carl was my favorite beach boy and it's a shame he's gone.

listen to this song and then to just about any dB's song and you'll see they agree.
