about

"Disney Girls" is a cover song of the song recorded in "Surf's Up" (1971) by The Beach Boys.
Longing for Brian Wilson, and "God Only Knows" is still the best song for me, but I chose this song this time.
Beautiful lyrics and melodies written by Bruce Johnston that will heart ache, I always wanted to cover such a masterpiece.
This time, the 3/4 beat is not changed, added the bouncing rhythm, and the mellotron that is similar to the previous song. It has arranged to create a feeling that is a bit different from the slow original song.
Also, the chorus with many layers was in line with the original song. Through the work, I was once again impressed by The Beach Boys's chorus work.

『Disney Girls』はザ・ビーチ・ボーイズの『Surf's Up』(1971)に収録された曲のカヴァー曲。
ブライアン・ウィルソンに憧れ、『God Only Knows』こそ至高の一曲なのは変わらないものの、今回はこの曲を選択。
ブルース・ジョンストンの書いた心を締め付ける様な美しい歌詞とメロディー。そんな名曲をカヴァーする機会を伺い続けて今回に至っている。
3/4はそのままに弾ける様なリズムと前曲から踏襲したメロトロンで構築し、スローな原曲とは一味違う雰囲気に仕上げている。
また幾重にも重ねたコーラスは原曲に沿ったものの、作業を通じて本家のコーラスワークに改めて感嘆させられた。

lyrics

Clearing skies and drying eyes
Now I see your smile
Darkness goes and softness shows
A changing style
Just in time words that rhyme
Well bless your soul
Now I'll fill your hands
With kisses and a Tootsie Roll

Oh reality, it's not for me
And it makes me laugh
Oh, fantasy world and Disney girls
I'm coming back

Patti Page and summer days
On old Cape Cod
Happy times making wine
In my garage
Country shade and lemonade
Guess I'm slowing down
It's a turned back world
With a local girl
In a smaller town

Open cars and clearer stars
That's what I've lacked
But fantasy world and Disney girls
I'm coming back

Love...Hi Rick and Dave
Hi Pop...Well good morning mom
Love...get up guess what
I'm in love with a girl I found
She's really swell
Cause she likes
Church, bingo chances and old time dances

All my life I spent the night
With dreams of you
And the warmth I missed
And for the things I wished
They're all coming true
I've got my love to give
And a place to live
Guess I'm gonna stay
It'd be a peaceful life
With a forever wife
And a kid someday
It's earlier nights
And pillow fights
And your soft laugh
Fantasy world and Disney girls
I'm coming back
