Re: The Beatles and the Beach Boys
For the purposes of The Daily Beatle, my long-running Beach Boys kick will conclude with this post. Below is a rundown of basically every entry on the site that mentions the group once dubbed "America's Band." - "There's a Place" vs. "In My Room"; - The BB's cover of "With a Little Help from My Friends"; - Another cover: "I Should Have Known Better"; - News about the original Smile being released; - Today in music history: Pet Sounds; - Yet another cover: "Tell Me Why"; - Marking Dennis Wilson's birthday; - In praise of Pet Sounds; - Brian Wilson, Rubber Soul and the '60s; - Paul on Pet Sounds; - Lastly, The Beatles and the Beach Boys.
