History is not only made by the first appearance, but it is also in the final moment in which the observer knows in their heart they might never see such beauty, the monumental or the heart beat again. History is not a private club for the winning of a trophy, the essays of children getting too grips with world events, the worry of elections or the spin of the dice which dictates a person’s collision with the aftermath of the historic; sometimes it just boils down to the fact that a certain song, a writer’s love and passion will never be heard in the same way by a crowd in a city again.

It is arguably impossible to calculate all the love in the world, you would be better off just trying to attempt collecting sand from a far off beach and turning into Cornish tin; some things are just physically impractical to do and hopeless to challenge.

Legends never truly lose their shine in the world of art. The odd botched single along the way, the collaboration done for artistic vale but never truly welcomed by either fan or ready to poison the air cynic and perhaps the many brushes with the law with minor indiscretions that only fame can magnify to the point there every pore is seen and every mark suffering intense analysis, all add to the legendary status being saluted with ready open hand.

The world may have moved on, a different vibe purveys the charts and the streets of the American west coast and more importantly the music scene.  Somehow though, no matter what the decade, The Beach Boys make it possible to believe that summer is never that far away.
