I get goosebumps listening to this song. I grew up in Southern California in the 60's -- Huntington, Newport, Balboa, Laguna, all of those. The beach was my second home. It was so much better and simpler back then -- much less crowded, filled with cute girls in 60's-style bikinis, and the pier was just a pier, not built up into a huge shopping center monstrosity like it is now.
Many beautiful summer days were spent watching the sun set over Huntington and Laguna. The warmth of the sun, the good company, the exciting sights of girls in bikinis (the subjects of many crushes, and some summer romance, back then!) If I could jump into a time machine and do it all over again, I would in a heartbeat.
When I listen to Your Summer Dream, it instantly transports me back there. Sometimes I can even smell the beach air again -- it's funny how certain songs can do that. It's just perfect. In my mind, the music of the 60's has yet to be equaled.

I'm new to this area (east coast) having come from San Diego, CA and this song makes me long to go back. I remember those days back in the 60's and 70's listening to his music. I tried so many times to immitate his vocal features but couldn't quite make it an exact match. I sang this tune with a girl friend back then and fell in love with her as we harmonized together. This tune makes me dream about those days A LOT!

this is a beautiful song made even better by brians flowing emotional and at times sad and angelic voice.the melody is easy on the ear.
Not overproduced and would sound equaly good without insrtruments.
It was a young Brian Wilson and you notice the musíc harmonies and arrangement all spot on.
In a way its a masterpiece juspt based on its simplicity.
This is a terrific song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/22/11
This is a VERY ROMANTIC SONG, that was done in june of 1963, Brian Wilson was great on this!This song does not get as much publicity or air play as it should have. I am just hoping and praying that MY SUMMER DREAM COMES TRUE LATER THIS SUMMER.IT WOULD MEAN AN AWFUL LOT TO ME !
