  1. Sloop John B

    "Sloop John B" (originally published as "The John B. Sails") is a Bahamian folk song from Nassau. A transcription by Richard Le Gallienne was published in 1916, and a version was included in Carl Sandburg's The American Songbag in 1927. Since the early 1950s there have been many recordings of the song with variant titles including "I Want to Go Home" and "Wreck of the John B". The 1966 folk rock adaptation by the Beach Boys was produced and arranged by bandleader Brian Wilson, and served as the lead single of their 11th studio album Pet Sounds. The song peaked at number three in the US on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, number two in the UK, and number one in several other countries. It remains one of the group's best-remembered recordings of their mid 1960s period, containing an unusual and elaborate a cappella vocal section not found in other pop music of the era.In 2011, the Beach Boys' version of "Sloop John B" was ranked No. 276 on Rolling Stone's list of "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time".
