The Beach Boys - Love You
One of my favorite Beach Boys albums. The first few songs start out normal enough, but by the time they get to Johnny Carson things take a turn for the weird and only get more bizarre from there. This was going to be a solo album called Brian Wilson Loves You but the Beach Boys appropriated it. It seems like he may have collaborated with a 10 year old on the lyrics. The music is mostly simple and a bit cartoony. The songs where Brian Wilson sings lead sound like a cross between a homeless bum and the guy who gets way too drunk at the company Christmas party and takes over the karaoke machine. The usual Beach Boys harmonies are there on most of the songs.
