Recording Date July 12, - April 13, Tony Asher, for his part, denies ever penning words for the tune. Its legendary status is even more remarkable considering that it came together in less than an hour. According to a Guardian interview, Wilson claims that he and Tony Asher composed the song in just 45 minutes. And Brian spent a lot of time working on what ended up being the instrumental parts of that song. But the part that has lyrics really was one of those things that just kinda came out as a whole.
He wisely edited the part out soon after. For the fadeout, he had composed an elaborate second a cappella break. So he was smart enough to peel it all back. It was full of noise. You could hear him talking in the background. It was real sloppy.

He played the song to his father and onetime band manager , Murry Wilson, who advised his son to speed up the tape a full tone to give his voice a sweeter, more youthful quality. The effect made him sound like the lovesick teenager that, in many ways, he still was.

Session musicians used Coke cans, water bottles and orange juice jugs for percussion. The arrangements on Pet Sounds boast a dazzling array of percussion previously unseen in the rock-music arena. In order to create the music in his head, Wilson improvised a number of percussive instruments from whatever he had on hand.
Brian loved that kind of stuff. Brian began seriously working on his masterpiece on Tuesday, 18 January , at Western Recorders, and continued for 27 sessions spread over three months at four separate Los Angeles studios.
