I'll kick it off with 409!

Ah, yes! Something for us old Chevy runners.
The good ol' days of driving crazy showing off that horsepower.
Makes me want to pull out the set of original ralley hubcaps I have and polish them up.
Thanks.

In those days, even though I was a teenager, my father would not let me listen to rock and roll. He was from the swing era and was also heavily into barbershop quartet singing. That was my key. I said "dad, listen to these guys, listen to the chords, listen to the harmony" and I got him to listen to Little Duece Coup. Well he did and because of the Beach Boys, he grudgingly told me I could begin listening to rock.
So I immediately went out and brought home "Pappa's Got a Brand New Bag". Oops!

Let's keep it rolling with California Girls!


The music for the song came from Brian Wilson's first '___' experience. In the Beautiful Dreamer documentary, Wilson said that shortly after taking '___', he ran up to a bedroom and hid under a pillow, shouting "I'm afraid of my mom, I'm afraid of my dad." Sometime later, he left the room and went to a piano. He started playing in the bass the B-F#-G# pattern over and over, and then added in the right hand after a few minutes a B chord, moving to an A chord. Within a half hour, he had come up with the "well east-coast girls are hip, I really dig the styles they wear" part of the song. The next day, he and Mike Love supposedly finished off the remainder of the song.

Good Vibrations

The recording and production style used on the "Good Vibrations" single established Wilson's new method of operation: the recording and re-recording of specific sections of music, followed by rough mixes of the sections edited together, further recording as required, and the construction of the final mix from the component elements.
