Whether it’s stepping on the treadmill or re-finishing a wood table, the right kind of music gets me going.
Nickelback is good for those times. Adam Lambert, Finger Eleven, and Shinedown are fine choices also.
For writing, ES Posthumus or the soundtrack from Harry Potter.
But today I am talking retro, the music from my youth.
The soft sounds and interwoven melodies that Brian Wilson and Mike Love put together in this album remind me of why they owned the sixties.
Now, fifty years later, they rule the radio waves again. Or, in this case, my mp3.
Maybe you didn’t listen to Surfer Girl on the loudspeakers at the swimming pool. Or hear Good Vibrations for the first time on a transistor radio.
But if intricate melodies and smooth voices that flow like warm honey are what you love, check out the Beach Boys.
