Don't Worry Baby
“Worry is interest paid on trouble before it comes due.”
- William Ralph
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Worry - one of my better skills... quite possibly one of my best talents.....
BONUS - Don't Worry Baby - The Beach Boys
|"Don’t Worry Baby" is a song written by
Brian Wilson and
Roger Christian, produced by Wilson and first recorded by the
Beach Boys. The band's version, a tender ballad with falsetto lead
vocal by Brian, was first released on their 1964 album
Shut Down Volume 2. It was also released as the B-side of
The Beach Boys' first U.S. number-one hit single, "I
Get Around", managing to reach number 24 on the U.S. Hot 100 in its
own right. The single was released in the United States in May 1964
Capitol Records. It was released a month later, in June 1964, in the
Brian Wilson cited the song as his attempt to capture the essence of his all-time favourite record, "Be My Baby" by the Ronettes, who would later cover his song. At one time, Wilson listened to his 45 record of the song he "could never do" up to 100 times a day.
John Lennon's 1980 hit, "(Just Like) Starting Over", is considered by some to somewhat borrow from the chorus melody of "Don't Worry Baby", while Garbage's 1998 hit, "Push It", contains an interpolation of its chorus.
The song "Don't Worry Baby" is part of the The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll list., and ranked as the 176th greatest song of all time in Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
