Just some trivial information. Hopefully entertaining.
The legendary unreleased, unfinished The Beach Boys LP 'Smile' (1967) was
meant to refer to American culture. In the song 'Barnyard', a voice can be
heard imitating Donald Duck.
The Beach Boys - Barnyard - SMiLE by PC
fanmix of backing track and demo. "Donald" can be heard at 0:52.
Brian Wilson - Barnyard - 2004
Finished, re-recorded version. No Donald. Or maybe very dimly at 0:26.
The Beach Boys song 'Fall Breaks and Back to Winter' (also from 1967) is
subtitled 'Woody Woodpecker Symphony'. Woody Woodpecker is another American
"You swindler! You cheat! ROB your poor old uncle, will you?"
(which Barks story?)
