The Beach Boys – “Our Prayer” – (1969)

This a cappella tune was written by the Beach Boys – okay, so there is a piano or something in the background being struck, so it isn’t strictly a cappella. It’s a weird a cappella song though, because it has very few lyrics. Most of the song consists of The Boys humming or making sounds but not actually saying something. Then, for like a brief 20 second spell – they sing something and then it’s over. As weird as it sounds, it’s actually very mellow and quite good. Something different and light for the day after Christmas.
