Music: “Surfer Girl” by The Beach Boys

Sept. 16, 1963 - On sale today is the newest long-playing record from The Beach Boys,“Surfer Girl.” The single from the album is the title song, with “Little Deuce Coupe” as the B-side. Perhaps the most impressive song on the album is the ballad “In My Room,” which features sophisticated production — strings, organ, and dense harmonies — and highly personal lyrics. “In My Room” was composed by Brian Wilson and Gary Usher. The massive success of the group’s album “Surfin’ U.S.A.,” released this March, granted Wilson the leverage to convince Capitol to allow him full control over the band's productions, an unprecedented move in the music industry. Wilson produced “Surfer Girl” at Western Studio in Hollywood from May 9 to July 16.
