Hand Signed by: Dennis Wilson, Carl Wilson, Al Jardine, Mike Love & Bruce Johnston.
“California Girls” is a song written by Brian Wilson and Mike Love for the American rock band the Beach Boys, featured on their 1965 album Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!). Wilson conceived the song during his first acid trip, later arranging and producing the song’s recording, and incorporating an orchestral prelude plus contrasting verse-chorus form. Upon its release as a single, “California Girls” reached #3 on the Billboard Hot 100. It was backed with “Let Him Run Wild”, another track from Summer Days.
The song is considered emblematic of the 1960s California Sound. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame included it as one of “500 Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll”. In 2010, the Beach Boys’ recording was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. In 2011, Rolling Stone magazine ranked it #72 on its list of the “500 Greatest Songs of All Time”.
