New Featured Unknown/Underrated Song*: "In My Room" from the Beach Boys

The Beach Boys became known early in their career for good time music about surfing and hot rods.  The release of this introspective song from Brian Wilson revealed that his songwriting was becoming more complex and personal.  It probably stunned fans and radio stations, who only took it to #23 at the time.  Once the shock wore off, it has become one of the group's most-loved songs:

"In My Room"
Beach Boys
Written by Brian Wilson and Gary Usher
There's a world where I can go and tell my secrets to
In my room, in my room
In this world I lock out all my worries and my fears
In my room, in my room

Do my dreaming and my scheming
Lie awake and pray
Do my crying and my sighing
Laugh at yesterday

Now it's dark and I'm alone
But I won't be afraid
In my room, in my room
In my room, in my room
In my room, in my room
