And rightly so.
I love this song. I remember I was watching a Beach Boys documentary and I heard this great song that I didn't remember, it was just harmonizing and it sounded great. Initially I was determined to find what song this was, then I realized that I was listening to the isolated backing vocals for California Girls.
I think that the complexity of the music gets a little lost because of the silly lyrical content and the goofy David Lee Roth version, but this song is great and is very well put together. It was the major accomplishment just prior to Good Vibrations and the Brian Wilson implosion.
Plus, I married a California Girl, so it's extra special to me!
