Beat of the Day
be my baby
for the win...
Brian Wilson regularly cites this track and Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue as his favorite pieces of music. I guess that might seem incongruous at first, but then look at Brian Wilson's music and it all comes together.
No game tonight. Ah well. I've got a pitcher of homemade lemonade in the fridge. Mud Hens rained out yesterday so two 7 inning games @ 6:30, plans are to sit on the back porch sipping, listening and reading while the hounds enjoy the backyard.
 Makes a lot of sense. I know "Don't Worry Baby" was essentially Wilson's attempt at "Be My Baby." He came pretty close. "Be My Baby" has to be in the top five-to-ten tracks of the rock n' roll era, an almost perfectly realized song and recording.
 I'd say "Don't Worry Baby" is its equal - the musical setting isn't as lush as Spector's, but the emotion behind the vocals is even stronger than Ronnie's. "Don't Worry Baby" stands with The Miracles' "You Really Got A Hold On Me" and The Who's "Can't Explain" as absolutely perfect expressions of teenage romantic confusion.
