The music of the Beach Boys

If you're like me, you probably know the Beach Boys only from their song Kokomo. Since summertime has come I was looking for some new music to listen to and I got the collected hits of the Beach Boys called The Sound of Summer. And now I'm extremely glad I did because I discovered songs I really really like. Everybody should check out the the premonition of coming danger in the song Don''t Worry Baby, the nostalgic looking forward to adulthood in When I Grow Up (to be a man), and the declaration of needful love in God Only Knows.

God Only Knows is probably in the top five of my all-time favorites. Honestly, it's number one in my list now. Here's why:

I may not always love you
But long as there are stars above you
You never need to doubt it
Ill make you so sure about it

God only knows what Id be without you

If you should ever leave me
Though life would still go on believe me
The world could show nothing to me
So what good would living do me
