  1. Wendy

    "Wendy" is a song written by Brian Wilson and Mike Love for the American rock band The Beach Boys. It was released on their 1964 album All Summer Long. It was also featured on their EP, Four by The Beach Boys. "Wendy" peaked at No. 44 on the Billboard Hot 100, at No. 36 in Germany and at No. 5 in Switzerland in July 1967 when it was nominally the B-side of "Good Vibrations" -- as it was everywhere outside the US. In regional North American charts it made the top ten in Washington DC, Louisville, Vancouver, Minneapolis, Denver, and Tucson; top twenty in Toronto, San Francisco, San Diego, Miami, Columbus, and Cincinnati. The opening has an ominous feel to it and a cough is audible during the song's middle eight. The song was originally credited to just Wilson. Mike Love's name was added as a result of a lawsuit filed by him against Wilson in the 1990s. The song was also covered by influential American punk band The Descendents on their Enjoy! album and their live album Liveage!
