50 years ago today (14/22/66), The Beach Boys record Pet Sounds classic”Wouldn’t It Be Nice.” The opening track on the 1966 album Pet Sounds, it was composed, arranged, and produced byBrian Wilson with words largely by Tony Asher. After a 1990s court case, an additional credit was awarded to Mike Love for the song’s coda’s vocal arrangement and lyric. It was released as a single two months after the album’s release with “God Only Knows” as its B-side. In other countries, the sides were flipped, with “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” as the single’s B-side.
