"Little Deuce Coupe" by The Beach Boys.

OK, back to the 60's: This '63 street drag racing tale was Brian Wilson's first collaboration with DJ and lyricist Roger Christian. An ode to a souped-up 1932 Ford Model B. Released as the flip-side to "Surfer Girl", it was The Beach Boys' first charting B-side at #15 and the title track of their 4th studio album. It remains Brian Wilson's favorite Beach Boys car song. This was Brian's first effort as a producer and David Marks' last recording as the group's rhythm guitarist. With Hal Blain on drums instead of Dennis, it also marks the group's first use of studio musicians.

Yesterday's answer: "Don't Get Around Much Anymore". The opening line "Missed the Saturday dance..." has often been misheard as "Mr. Saturday dance" and "Mr. Saturday night". Of course, who can forget " 'scuse me while I kiss this guy" and "the horse on 7th Avenue"?!​ch?v=8TmSEgDl-Cg​ch?v=_SZHMySBX_A
