Surfin’ Safari

19 Apr, 1962

The Beach Boys release Surfin’ Safari as their title track on their 1962 album Surfin’ Safari. The song is written by Brian Wilson and Mike Love. Wilson:

I always worked to try and write better songs because I wanted to impress the other Beach Boys. I’m embarrassed when people say I’m a “musical genius.” I’m not a musical genius. I just work really hard at what I do.
