  • Lyrics
  • We have Beach Boys guitarist Carl Wison and their manager at the time, Jack Rieley, to thank for this ethereal song packed with lyrics like "Encasing all embracing wreath of repose." While his brother Brian Wilson wrote most of The Beach Boys classics, Carl had a big part in the Surf's Up, doing a lot of production work on the album and also co-writing "Long Promised Road" with Rieley - Carl sang lead on both tracks as well. Explaining the spiritual nature of his songs, Carl said, "We believe in God as universal consciousness. God is love, God is you, God is me, God is everything here in this room."
  • The mellow vibe of this song lent itself to surf culture, which the album was clearly going for. The song was used in the 1972 surfing movie Five Summer Stories.
  • This was used over the closing credits of Cameron Crowe's movie Almost Famous. >>
