                                                      By the LifetimesMAG Scribbler... It was the best day of my life. It’s a cliché that I found myself using over and over on the day following my wedding.

It’s got a gentle rhythm and the most gorgeous harmonies and, heck, it’s arguably the best track on one of pop music’s finest albums. But when it was released on Pet Sounds 50 years ago this month, the Beach Boys’ God Only Knows became the greatest first dance song that can never be. Yes, it’s exactly five decades since that lovely horn, piano and bells intro was first heard, it’s sweet sound giving away to that killer - yes, that’s right, passion-killer - first line: “I may not always love you.” I may no...  (Read More)

At around the same time that we were approaching our son Charlie’s fifth birthday, we happened to spend an afternoon flicking through our hundreds of family photographs.
