The Beach Boys are an American rock band formed in Hawthorne, California, in 1961, they’re known for their incredible barbershop style vocal stylings and jaunty music.
“Wouldn’t It Be Nice” is a song written by Brian Wilson, Tony Asher, and Mike Love. It was released as the opening track on their 1966 album Pet Sounds.
Like other tracks for Pet Sounds, Wilson constructed the song’s symphonic Wall of Sound arrangement using a variety of instruments not normally associated with the popular music of its time, including accordions and a detuned twelve-string guitar.
Brian Wilson had an impeccable ear for music and was incredibly specific with how he wanted the vocals to run on the track. After they recorded the instrumental track, the Beach Boys overdubbed their voices to match Wilson’s arrangement exactly.
