The Beach Boys - Sail On, Sailor

This is not one for the Beach Boys haters out there, but it's my blog, and I like this tune a lot. From the "Holland" album, of course, written by Brian Wilson and Van Dyke Parks (one of my fave songwriting duos) along with a few collaborators. Lead vocals by Blondie Chaplin (now touring Europe with a lesser-known combo called The Rolling Stones) give it a different sound than the usual B.B. tune ... somewhat soulful. And it fits in with the whole navy theme of the last millionty-eleven posts, so, here it is. Click on the embedded video play button to play.
