Haven't I Heard That Before #5: The Beach Boys & Okkervil River

This is the first Okkervil River song that I really fell in love with...probably for the reason that they burst into "Sloop John B" at the 3:00 minute mark...

I think we can all relate to "This is the worst trip I've ever been on"...for me it was my 2nd summer trip to Kansas in which we visited Oklahoma and the car's air conditioning broke. My family vacations on the whole were always fun but that was the worst single day of traveling ever.
