The best of the Beach Boys

Few pop bands better embody the feeling of summer than the Beach Boys.

The all-American group brought the sunny sounds of California to the rest of the world with their vocal harmonies and early surf-inspired songs.

Combining elements from rock, jazz, pop and R&B, the innovative songwriting and production – spearheaded by member Brian Wilson – helped make them one of the most influential groups of the 60s and 70s.

Today we’re looking back through some of their best hits – are any of your favourites on our list?

Loved The Beach Boys! Unfortunately Surfing in Scotland isn't quite the same as in California!
