Music today was The Beach Boys‘ Smiley Smile (1967), mainly because I was analysing Good Vibrations with sessioneer Rajan. You should also do that, listen to how it’s arranged, the parts, the singing, the ideas, you can see why McCartney was in awe of Brian Wilson.
This from Wikipedia: “Characterized by its complex soundscapes, episodic structure and subversions of pop music formula, it was the costliest single ever recorded. “Good Vibrations” later became widely acclaimed as one of the finest and most important works of the rock era”.
