All The Songs In ‘Love & Mercy’ Including The Beach Boys, Heart, Kenny G, And More

All The Songs In 'Love & Mercy' Including The Beach Boys, Heart, Kenny G, And More

This week, Brian Wilson‘s story will get told in "Love & Mercy," a biopic which details the brilliant rise, tragic fall, and redemptive return of The Beach Boys‘ songwriting genius. And as you might expect, the movie is filled wall-to-wall with Beach Boys tunes, along with a few others, and we’ve tracked ’em all down for you.

The film chronicles the transition period—and ensuing psychological breakdown—of The Beach Boys’ pop driven, breezy surfin’ songs era, to the bold experimentation of Pet Sounds and the aborted SMiLE. And the soundtrack draws heavily on all those songs, some of them sung by Paul Dano, while mixing in era specific tunes from the ’80s, where John Cusack takes over the leading role as the suffering and somewhat forgotten musician. Meanwhile, the score by Atticus Ross also incorporates fragments of many of these songs and more into his compositions, creating a strong sonic tapestry for the movie.
