In 1966, the Beach Boys released their most famous album ever: Pet Sounds. On this album, the eight track was God Only Knows. The song was written by Brian Wilson and Tony Asher, and it made use of all sorts of instruments which were normally not used in a pop single. These instruments included violins, a French horn and cellos. In the US, this song was the B-side to Wouldn’t It Be Nice, in the rest of the world this was the A-side. In other words: this single had a double A-side. In the UK this became a number 2 hit, in the US it ended on number 39. Enjoy
