"Girl Don't Tell Me" is a song written by Brian Wilson for the American rock band The Beach Boys. It was released on their 1965 album Summer Days (and Summer Nights!!). Featuring Carl Wilson on Lead. In December 1965, it was chosen to be the B-side to The Beach Boys' "Barbara Ann" single, which would chart at #2 in the U.S. and #3 in the UK.
"Girl Don't Tell Me" was structured very much like The Beatles' "Ticket to Ride", from the guitar breaks to the drum rolls. It is reported Brian Wilson wrote this song for The Beatles to record, though there's no evidence he ever actually submitted the song to them.
The song was recorded on April 30, 1965 at Western Studios. Chuck Britz was the engineer. It is one of the first songs to feature Carl Wilson as the lead vocalist (his first unshared lead was on "Pom Pom Play Girl"), and is one of the few Beach Boys songs from the era to feature no backing vocals. It is also the first recording session that Bruce Johnston participated in as a member of The Beach Boys. File Hashes
