"That's Why God Made The Radio" is an excellent new album from The Beach Boys. I love listening to the radio in the car. The title track reminds me of all the reasons why I love music. Listening to music is a celebration of life. Music creates memories of happy times that I will remember forever. Nothing beats listening to a great song on the radio with a girl or someone else. "Think About The Days" is ninety seconds of perfect harmonizing by Brian Wilson, Mike Love and the rest of the band. This track features goregous piano playing too. "Daybreak Over The Ocean" is a sweet love song. This song has a visual aspect with the ocean as a symbol of romance. "Beaches In Mind" is another fun song. The beach has always been a place to spend time with friends and relax. "From There And Back Again" and "Summer's Gone" have a soothing reflective tone. These two song make me think of all the good times I had with my high school buddies. These songs make me sad, but they are still beautiful songs with great lyrics. Isn't It Time is a song about trying to rekindle a relationship with a special woman. This song is a reminder that no relationship is ever dead. This song fills me with a sense of hope. "The Private Life Of Bill and Sue" is about the public's obsession with the lives of celebrities. The guitar playing and percussion instruments sound so good here. This new album is superb.
