Music Monday - "Break Away" by The Beach Boys (1969)

My Music Monday song is "Break Away" by the Beach Boys because this song has been stuck in my head the past couple of days.  I love the Beach Boys' music.  Their songs always remind me of summer.  "Break Away" was written by Brian Wilson and his father, Murry;   Brian said it was inspired by the Monkees.  It was recorded in 1969, so it is a later period Beach Boys song.  I remember this song from the Spirit of America record album (1975).  I played that album, and Endless Summer, over and over and over as a teen.

What Beach Boys songs are your favorites?  I would love to hear from you in the comments section, below.

I've always liked the Beach Boys too. I remember sitting by the pool at our local recreation center and hearing Beach Boy music blasting from the juke box. Those were the days! My all-time favorite Beach Boy song is 'Don't Cry Baby.'

Mary, that sounds like a great memory! "Don't Worry Baby" is a great song. I think my very favorite is "Good Vibrations" - but I love them all! - Trish
