Do you remember singing along to The Beach Boys' first #1 hit song?

The Californian quintet from the 60s are among the most unmistakable and enduring of the rock and roll era, and this song is no exception.

Written by Brian Wilson and Mike Love for The Beach Boys, it was released as a single through their record label, Capitol Records in 1964. It went on to become the first US number one charting song for the band and is included as the opening track on the studio album All Summer Long.

It was the first Beach Boys song to break the top 10 charts in England and a performance on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1964 made it a live performance favourite.

I get around
Get around round round I get around
From town to town
Get around round round I get around

Get around round round I get around
I’m makin’ real good bread
Get around round round I get around
I get around
Round
Get around round round oooo
Wah wa ooo
Wah wa ooo
Wah wa ooo
