Weekend Trivia -- Sunday
Good Morning Cottagers! A little greyer that I would like, this morning, and it looks like the rain we were supposed to have yesterday is due today. I hope not, as I have errands to run, laundry to go on the line and a birthday to attend!!
So, let's do some California Dreamin', shall we!! Today, we are going on a musical journey, one which I hope gets your toes tapping and an your inner idol singing happily away.
The album, Surfin' USA is notable for giving The Beach Boys their first widespread success with its title track, and for Brian Wilson's increasing prowess in songwriting, as well as vocal arrangement. The fuller-sounding vocals were achieved using double tracking, creating The Beach Boys' own unique sound. Another singer/song writer, however, thought Surfin' USA sounded pretty familiar. He sued, and received full credit for the song, plus all of the royalties. So, ladies and gentlemen, who was that songwriter, and what was his original song??
