Course OverviewHad the British Invasion been delayed, American pop music might have followed a completely different trajectory in the 1960s. Evolving from musical trends of the late 50s, surf music ruled the American coastal air waves from 1961-64. As the music morphed from classic instrumentals tracks (think “Pipeline” and “Wipe Out”) to the multi-layered harmony of vocal groups, there was no bigger band to emerge from the era than The Beach Boys. After a brief history of surf music before the arrival of Brian Wilson and friends, we’ll examine the history of one of the greatest (and most complicated) feel-good groups of all time. Naturally, you’re free to singalong!
