’Til I Die  performed by The Beach Boys  1971
Recommended by Genza [profile]

What a song. No time for breathing - because we're straight into three phases of soaring harmonies and choppy Wurlitzer piano chords. As your spine tingles get prepared for the cyclical refrain that brings the song to its climax. We're talking beauty defined.

from Surf's Up (Brother Records / Capitol Records 7243 5 25692 2 9)

  22 Jun 05 ·sok186: After being pushed and pushed to make more music for the Beach Boys, Brian contributes his last major composition. It's always seemed to be his way of saying,"This is why I can't keep making music, and I need to go away for a while, because this is what I feel." Easily essential listening.
Ain't There Something Money Can't Buy  performed by Young-Holt Unlimited  1968
Recommended by tinks [profile]

This is one of my favorite songs of all time. Very cool soul-jazz, with vicious, biting lyrics. "Money can buy you silk and sable/false religion/fame and fable". Young and Holt even manage to get a dig in at their former boss Ramsey Lewis by mockingly quoting from his big hit "Wade in the Water".

from Soulful Strut (Brunswick)
available on CD - Wack Wack (Kent)
