7 Things To Do While Listening To Pet Sounds By The Beach Boys

7 Things To Do While Listening To Pet Sounds By The Beach Boys

It is summer, after all.

If you're in the mood to be nostalgic, sing loudly, and get a tan, you need a soundtrack for that. Good thing it already exists and it's called Pet Sounds by The Beach Boys.

We all know and love The Beach Boys. They hold a special place in our hearts, I especially loved hearing them on the radio as a kid. They've put out numerous anthems for the summer whether you're "Surfin U.S.A" or singing "Wouldn't It Be Nice" with your new flame. There's no better time to blare this album than summer vacation so get out your speakers!

1. Making breakfast

Listening to this album at 9 in the morning surrounded by the smell of blueberry muffins. Just seems ideal. Get someone to help you out because you'll need a dance partner.

2. Driving

Or, if you are hopeless at driving like me you can sit back and listen in the passenger. "God Only Knows" sounds just as dreamy either way.

3. Have a pool party

That's what The Beach Boys were all about! So be extra corny and play a few tracks from Pet Sounds. "Wouldn't It Be Nice" will never cease being a banger.

4. Looking at old family photos

Raid the ones from your mom or your dad’s childhood or pictures from your grandparent’s prime, to match the 60’s- 70’s nostalgia. I think "I Guess I Just Wasn't Made For These Times" was made for this.

5. Going on a bike ride

Make sure there’s plenty of nature on your path. If not, this album will bring the peace and calm to you.

6. Climbing a tree

I’m pretty sure it’s a universal thing to instantly feel like a kid again when The Beach Boys come on. Sometimes you just gotta perch up in a tree and bask in the sun.

7. Going to the beach

A little far-fetched and I’m sure no one was expecting this one. The entirety of Pet Sounds fits the mood for the drive there, for bathing in the sun, and for the tired ride back.

Have a great start to your summer, everybody! Manifest that 60's energy!

14 Stages Of Buying Jonas Brothers Concert Tickets As A 20-Something In 2019

"Alexa, play "Burnin' Up" by the Jonas Brothers."


In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.
