In classic Beach Boys style, the song focuses on three subjects: surfing, women, and cars. In Surfin' Safari, the former takes precedence. Though on the surface a simple verse-chorus form song about a surf adventure, the song also does an excellent job of exploring the broad momentum that surf culture was gaining in California in the 1960s. Surfin’ Safari" Track Info. Written By Mike Love & Brian Wilson.
Surf's Up is the 17th studio album by American rock band the Beach Boys, released in 1971. It was met with a warm critical reception and reached number 29 on the US record charts, becoming their highest-charting LP of new music in the US since 1967.

Almost all The Beach Boys' tunes had something to do with warm weather, sand, beach, waves, ocean, girls and parties. Dennis Wilson made sure the band kept aligned with the Californian surfing lifestyle. Dennis Wilson was born on the 4th December 1944, a few months before the end of World War II. He hardly knew how to play drums, but his brother Brian bought him a few lessons until he did okay. In 1968, Dennis met Charles Manson and immediately became fascinated by the strange character.
The Beach Boys album with no love songs" OK, Disney Girls - really nice nostalgic effort by Bruce Johnston about time when everything was better than now, Sinatra-styled evocative ballad with great vocal harmonies. Their vocal arrangements are not on par with their past glories, except 'Til I Die, Disney Girls and title track, long lost Smile song. The main mood of the album is seriousness, anxiety and concerning, miles away from careless nature of their Sixties' records. Maybe were The Beach Boys inspired by the last two Beatles' albums, Abbey Road and Let It Be.
Several other Beach Boys singles were much better liked by British fans than by their American counterparts. On 27 July 1968, the group entered the US chart at No. 88 with ‘Do It Again,’ a new single from the hit album they’d released earlier that year, 20/20. It made reasonable progress throughout August, but maybe it was the slightly more progressive, throbbing beat of the Brian Wilson-Mike Love composition that hampered its progress somewhat in America. Do It Again’ is on the Beach Boys’ 20/20 album, which can be bought here. Follow the official Beach Boys Best Of playlist.

The Beach Boys were and will always remain a singles band. I realize there will be many to disagree with me, but the statement is one of fact, derived from having been there then, listened, and of course have been talking with other listeners for near fifty years. Point of fact, the Beach Boys would not release a solid, all songs great album until 2012, with That’s Why God Made The Radio. As with those other Beach Boy albums, Surf’s Up falls into the same category, though what sets this album apart from the others, even the flowery sounding Pet Sounds, was the density of the production, which infused weaker material to sound greater. There are deep concerns for me with this record, and while within it there are some songs I truly love, there’s an equal amount of distrust and dissatisfaction as well.
20/20 is the 15th studio album by American rock band the Beach Boys, released on February 10, 1969. The LP was named for being their 20th overall album release. Much of it consists of outtakes from earlier albums. It reached number 3 on UK record charts and number 68 in the US. Brian Wilson was absent during most of the album's recording after admitting himself into a psychiatric hospital, requiring brothers Carl and Dennis to retrieve several outtakes he had recorded years earlier.
