Lay for the Day22nd
1966: The Beach Boys single Good Vibrations, released
on 10th October, makes its first appearance on the US charts, at No. 61
in the Cash Box Top 100.
You let the music in you grow,
From you to me you let it go.
You feel it flow from me to you
That something real is coming through,
That something real is coming true
Like you hoped to see it do,
Like an old song growing new.
A rubber ball taught you
A rising tide taught you to rise.
Green birch boughs taught you to bow
And blades of grass taught you to stand.
From mighty oaks come small acorns
And roses from a bush of thorns.
You heard how sweetness came from strength
And life one day will conquer death.
and music by The Children,
from In Memory of Grace
