  • Ohh darlin'

    Ohhhh-hhh-hhh

    Don't know if words can say
    But darlin' i'll find a way
    To let you know what you meant to me
    Guess it was meant to be
    I hold you in my heart
    As life's most precious part

    Oh darlin'
    I dream about you often my pretty darlin'
    (darlin' you're so fine)
    I love the way you soften my life with your love
    Your precious love uh huh oh

    I was living like half a man
    Then i couldn't love but now i can
    You pick me up when i'm feeling sad

    Gonna love you every single night
    'Cause i think you're too outta sight

  • Randy from Houghton Lake, MiIn the sitcom The Big Bang Theory Season 9 Episode 10 this song was featured. Sheldon had an earworm and couldn't figure out the song until near the end of the episode. I was stumped until it was finally revealed that the song was Darlin'.
  • Jennifur Sun from RamonaWhat a beautiful voice Carl had. Sadly he was a smoker.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn December 17th 1967, "Darlin'" by the Beach Boys entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #82; and six weeks later on January 28th, 1968 it peaked at #19 {for 2 weeks} and spent 13 weeks on the Top 100...
    And the week after its second week at #19 it was at #33 and that was its ninth and last week on the chart...
    The song was track one of side two on the quintet's thirteenth studio album, 'Wild Honey', the album peaked at #24 on Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart and #7 on the United Kingdom's Albums chart...
    R.I.P. Dennis Wilson {1944-1983} and Carl Wilson {1946-1998}.
  • George from Belleville, NjThis song has a bright bounce sound,very upbeat with a strong melody.It has the kind of style the Beach Boys are known for.Every so often their brilliance shown through on classics such as this.
  • Ross from Brooklyn, NyCheck out that record's version of "Aren't You Glad?" as well!
  • Ross from Brooklyn, NyAs much as I love the "Wild Honey" LP, the definitive version of this song is on the "Live in London 1969" album with the horn section. Terrific Wilson/Love stuff in a superb arrangement. And, oh yeah, those vocals!
