Song Of The Day – 12/9/11







Song Of The Day – “Little Honda” by The Hondells

Yup! Gary Usher again…we’ll close out Gary Usher week with the classic Hondells hit “Little Honda.” The song was written by Brian Wilson and Mike Love and was on the Beach Boys’ “All Summer Long” album. As with other Usher recordings, this song features Wrecking Crew stalwarts Glen Campbell and Hal Blaine on the backing track. Once this track began its ascent to the number 9 position on the charts, the Beach Boys released their own version as a single. This clip was from “Shindig” in 1965.
