Songs You May Have Missed #79

The School: “Never Thought I’d See the Day” (2012)

Farfisa organ plus girl group giddiness plus sweet, breathless young love equals pop bliss! This song makes me think of Brian Wilson’s melancholy “Please Let Me Wonder”–but is anything but melancholy itself. How does a song capture so perfectly the spirit of the Beach Boys without sounding anything like the Beach Boys?

I’ve known this tune for less than ten minutes and I already know I’ll love it for the rest of my life.
