3AM Eternal: The Beach Boys “Girl Don’t Tell Me” (1965)


The other sad truth about summer romance is that they don’t last. Perhaps the best song to capture the harsh reality of this fact is Mr. Brian Wilson, and this classic Beach Boys track captures the emotional pull of the separation caused by the end of the season, and, in a rare moment of masculine strength, finds the protagonist strong, confident, and aware of what will happen next, and offers up a self-preserving move that was extremely rare for a Wilson song of that era. Other than that, it’s simply a lovely tune, and one of the finest in a catalog of hundreds of lovely songs.
