THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
74-The Beach Boys-Do It Again.
1968-Number 1 single.
Best Bit-At 1.24.The song is about fondly remembering the past in detail and correctly reminiscing,which is ironic really because Brian Wilson thinks the song was written at Mike Love’s house and Love thinks it was written at Wilson’s house.
The Beach Boys were formed in Hawthorne,California in 1961 by the brothers Brian,Dennis and Carl Wilson(1946-1998,) their cousin Mike Love and their friend Al Jardine. Brian Wilson is often referred to as a genius because of his innovative and unorthodox approach to the development of studio recording techniques(see also best songs 930-811 and 180.)
By 1968 The Beach Boys had moved away from their earlier ‘Surf Music’ based material and their record sales were in decline.’Do It Again’s’ lyrics were written by Mike Love who was inspired after having spent a day at the beach with an old friend.Love showed the lyrics to Brian Wilson who proceeded to write the music.Wilson has stated that he believes the song was the best one he and Love ever worked on.
‘Do It Again’ took The Beach Boys back to the top of the UK chart giving them their second and final Number 1 single.
‘Well I’ve been thinking ’bout all the places we’ve surfed and danced and all the faces we’ve missed.’
