What's your favourite 20 seconds of music?
Listening to The Beach Boys' California Girls made me realise how sublime the opening twenty seconds or so of the song are.
It's Brian at his mini-symphonic best, Strauss (the Richard one) meets Gershwin meets pop heaven. Then it's like, "who let the special kid loose on his, ahem, organ?". Normal service is resumed. The rest of the song is fine in a pre-Pet Sounds/Smile context, but nowhere near as transcendent as opening twenty seconds.
What are your favourite bits or sections of otherwise ordinary songs?
