It was written by Dennis, Jardine, and outside writer Bob Burchman. But if you'd seen the expressions and heard the mutterings of the others in the grou as they were ordered off-stage, it looked decidedly as though Bruce could find himself in the doghouse!
Wilson—Love song that was originally attempted during the sessions for Friends. I thought it should have been softer, with boxed guitars. Brian praised the song as "the most harmonically beautiful thing I've ever heard. It's a rock and roll prayer.
