The Beach Boys created many top hits, including, “Surfin’ USA” (which Wilson wrote lyrics for and was heavily influenced by Chuck Berry’s “Sweet Little Sixteen”). After some wrangling Berry received a co-writing credit), Other top tunes include “California Girls,” and “I Get Around.” Love has also written in a different medium, his memoir Good Vibrations: My Life as a Beach Boy was a New York Times Bestseller.
