Songfacts®: You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.
This song gained popularity through the TV appearances the Sunrays made on a teenage soap opera of the mid-'60s titled Never Too Young. The show starred Tony Dow, known for playing Wally Cleaver on Leave It To Beaver.
Murry Wilson, the sour-grapes father of Brian, Carl & Dennis, produced the Sunrays, trying to out-do his famous sons after being fired as Beach Boys manager. This song was produced by a vengeful Murry, hoping to make a bigger hit than Brian ever did. (thanks, john - lansing, MI, for above 2)
