Oh, The Beach Boys, et tu? This year has already turned into an anxiety-fest, and the last 24 hours have been real not good. So when this song came up on my track list, I was looking forward to kicking back in Kokomo for a few minutes. I recorded the hell out of this one as a kid for a reason, The Beach Boys. Before I discovered alcohol and pharmaceuticals, this was how I self-medicated. With a little bit of Kokomo. But then right before that awesome saxophone solo, there’s some weird break in the song. I’m sure it was my fault, The Beach Boys, maybe I bumped the boombox or something, but come on, guys! If I can’t count on The Beach Boys, what kind of world are we living in?!!?!
