Please Let Me Wonder

15 Feb, 1965

The Beach Boys release Please Let Me Wonder on the B-side of ‘Do You Wanna Dance?‘ It peaks at no. 52 on Billboard. Written by Brian Wilson and Mike Love. Brian Wilson states:

I wrote that at my apartment in West Hollywood. As soon as I finished I felt I had to record it so I called up my engineer, Chuck Britz, and woke him up. ‘Please Let Me Wonder’ was recorded at 3:30 in the morning. I drove to the studio in the middle of the night and recorded it. That song was done as tribute to Phil Spector’s music. It definitely a good straight ahead feel to it. I knew I loved that song from the moment it was finished and I’ve always loved it.
