Brian Wilson's Route 66

Brian Wilson is 66 today.

Here's a link to the Coverville tribute to Pet Sounds.

Brian from a 1967 performance of a song from what would have been SMiLE:


A Neil Young song that namechecks the Beach Boys and a song from Pet Sounds. The studio version (which I can't find) is even more evocative.


A John Hiatt song which has what I think are lovely harmonies - inspired by the Beach Boys?
