Song Spotlight: The Beach Boys, “Santa Ana Winds”

I WAS REMINDED OF THIS AMAZING BEACH BOYS SONG, upon hearing that, thanks to the Santa Ana Winds blowing through L.A., the temperature for the first game of the World Series tonight will be in the triple digits.

It’s easy to dismiss so much of the Beach Boys’ late 70’s output, but there are some gems, like this song. Forgive Mike Love’s lame spoken word intro and groove on the gentle acoustic guitar and those always-amazing harmonies. Listen to that chorus!! Good lord, Carl Wilson…what more can you say about the man with one of the most beautiful, angelic voices ever heard?
