In the meantime, how about a little bike bell music? As I’ve said many times before, I’m a big Beach Boys fan, and Pet Sounds is one of my fave albums. However, it wasn’t until recently, when I was researching my book (see left margin) that I began reading up on the background of Pet Sounds. And I discovered that one of the sweetest songs from that album - “You Still Believe In Me” - gets part of its charm from the use of various bicycle bells, and a bike horn. Now, I’d heard those particular sounds many many times, but I never gave much thought to the notion that they might exactly be what they sounded like – bike accessories. Or that someone would actually consider using them as instruments. I guess that’s why Brian Wilson is the music genius and I’m not! So, here’s a link to this tender love song with its chingy bike bells and tootie bike horn. It'll put both a tear and a twinkle in your eye.
