WIN a family four pack of tickets to “A Christmas Carol” at UTEP…
The 101 number one song of the day was the most expensive, elaborate single ever produced when it reached the top of the music world on December 10, 1966. And many have called it a masterpiece.
It was recorded in 17 sessions over a period of six months, at four different recording studios. It has lots of texture on it because so many overdubs were done. Its creators would double or triple or even quadruple the exact same part so it would sound like twenty voices. It was recorded at multiple studios because each had it own marked sound according to the driving force behind today’s 101 number one song of the day – that was Brian Wilson – It was the Beach Boys with Good Vibrations.
