One Kind Of Love

Album: No Pier Pressure (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • For Brian Wilson, music is an escape from the auditory hallucinations that have plagued him for much of his life. He told Billboard magazine: "We escape from what makes us feel bad by creating sounds that soothe our souls and make us feel good."

    "In one of my new songs," he added, "'One Kind of Love,' I wrote, 'Driftwood floating on the sea. Searching for the me, and all that I have known to be ... thank God you noticed me and brought back harmony to this lonely song.' The 'you' isn't any one person. It's my fans. My harmonies - all my diverse voices - are my way of including their voices. It's a mystical connection between me and my fans."
