Board Pic has me thinkin'...

Thinkin' about how lucky Brian was to have a brother that could realize the 'guitar' parts of Brian's work, and give them the Chuck Berry treatment. You gotta be smart to get ideas from someone else's head out through them, through you, and on to tape.

Guitar.com: Why is that such a special song(Fun,Fun,Fun)?

Carl Wilson: Because it starts so simple with that three-chord verse, but when you get into the chorus, the harmonies really stretch. It goes E to A-Flat Minor to A, B, A, A, A-Flat Minor and then a B suspended over the A. It spreads the harmony because it doesn't do what you think it should do. It resolves but it doesn't. The song is in E, but the instrumental break is in B and then it flip-flops to end the song. My dad said, "That tag sounds too funny; that high part sounds too weird. That part might make the song only go to number 13."
