Auto Tune: “Long Promised Road” by The Beach Boys

August 19th, 2015 at 3:00pm

Driving, riding, roads and of course cars themselves have all been immortalized by writers, composers and musicians around the world. Auto Tune is our way to spotlight a unique transportation song to celebrate these “ridden” gems along with the artists or composers who crafted them. Some you may know, many we’re sure you don’t.

86cda-beachboys-surfThe late ‘60s wasn’t exactly a blast for the Beach Boys. Their biggest rival, The Beatles, had released undoubtedly their best work and surpassed the group in both sales and critical approval. And if that weren’t enough there was the whole brother Brian issue. You all know the story, Brian Wilson, the leader of the band and resident musical genius, dabbled with LSD which ended up with a very bad trip that began in 1967 and has lasted pretty much to this day.

With Brian lightly contributing to the post-SMILE output, the rest of the band had to step up if they were going to continue as The Beach Boys. And they did. Mike Love revisited familiar ground with the hit “Do It Again”; Dennis Wilson – the original Beach Boy – created the achingly-beautiful “Forever”; And new band member Bruce Johnston wrote the sweet paean to his Orange Country youth in “Disney Girls.” But the youngest Wilson brother Carl also wrote several songs over this period. Teamed with band manager Jack Rieley, their first effort is the week’s Auto Tune.

I’ve always considered “Long Promised Road” a catchy, very hopeful song. Some have even described it as life affirming thanks to, especially, its chorus. Please take a listen to Carl Wilson’s beautiful contribution to the underrated album “Surf’s Up.”
