Birthday Shuffle a Deux #8

I am a California Girl.  I grew up in Southern California;  land of beaches, hot summer sun, and the Beach Boys.  While I like a number of their songs, "Warmth of the Sun" has to be one of my all time favorites.  Brian Wilson and Mike Love wrote the song as a tribute to John F. Kennedy on the night of his assassination.  Love was thinking about a woman who didn't reciprocate his feelings for her, and set it to the melancholy tune that Wilson had come up with.  I just like the melody and the harmonies that only the Beach Boys could create.  Ethereal.
