Happy Brithday - Pet Sounds!

On May 16, 1966: The Beach Boys released the album Pet Sounds in the US. The album is now regarded as the masterpiece of composer-producer Brian Wilson. Pet Sounds has been widely ranked as one of the most influential records ever released and has been ranked at No.1 in several music magazines lists of greatest albums of all time, including New Musical Express, The Times and Mojo Magazine. In 2003, it was ranked No.2 in Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list, (Sgt. Pepper's came first).

If you have Pet Sounds, today's a good day to dial it up it on your iPod (or whatever your listening method may be)...  If you don't have it, now would be a good time to get it!
