I was in my car with my girlfriend and we were driving around... When all of a sudden this guy Wink Martindaleâ€"a disc jockeyâ€"he goes, "All right! Here we go with 'Be My Baby' by the Ronettes." It started playing … All of a sudden it got into this partâ€""be my, be my baby"â€"and I said "What isâ€"what?! Whoa whoa! " I pulled over to the side of the street of the curb and went, "...My God!...Wait a minute!...No way! " I was flipping out. I really did flip out. Balls-out totally freaked out when I heard. … In a way it wasn't like having your mind blown, it was like having your mind revamped. It's like, once you've heard that record, you're a fan forever.- brian wilson - RecklessGreed
