On this day, 20th June 1942, the genius that is Brian Wilson was born. Just two days after Sir Paul McCartney came into this world. A momumental, earth changing week for popular music. When I think of musical perfection I think of Brian Wilson, note perfect but so much more than that, those notes come from deep down in Brian’s soul.
Don’t Talk (Put Your Head on My Shoulder) from Pet Sounds was recorded by The Beach Boys in 1966. Some say it was Paul McCarntey’s favourite Beach Boys song. It still sounds as utterly beautiful as the first day we heard it, just magnificent and effortless.
Happy 80th Birthday Brian
