All I Wanna Do

I'm smitten with this song, even though Mike Love, the evil Beach Boy, is all over it. Even still, I've been listening to it on repeat for the better part of an hour this evening. It sounds like Brian Wilson took the tapes from Pet Sounds and ran them through the washing machine 10 or 15 times, until all of the color had faded out. All of the standard Beach Boys ingredients are here--pledges of love, eternal devotion, ooohs, aaahhhs--so, lyrically, this isn't exactly a breakthrough. But production wise, yeah, it's positively eerie.
