My daughter is auditioning. Wants to sing Love and Mercy. Does anyone have advice on where I can find the piano score for the song? Thank you very much

The usual places.  It's not a difficult song, but it's all in the performance and feeling of it!

Francis's Surfer Moon is usually a go-to for BW music:

Check out various arrangements also:



The girls REALLY get it right:

Rocks it version



Listen to Brian's piano on this:



We fans were given a goody bag of items that went to the various meet and greet and sound check fans with it - but finding it could be difficult for me now.

All best with the audition.

To Al Forsyth:  Thank you!  We are grateful for your advice. She plays cello and has made an arrangement for cello and voice -- which she is auditioning tonight!  Best wishes

Keep us posted and let us know how she does.  Love and Mercy would be PERFECT as a cello piece. Or is it voice and cello alone?  Either way.

Our thanks again Al... your assistance is much appreciated! We are huge Brian Wilson fans. She is going to play her cello and sing. (voice & cello).  She worked out the notation the last day or so.

To Al and all... our daughter was selected. She will perform - Solo Cello and Voice -- Love and Mercy.  Last night she said "Dad, please thank Al and the forum for their advice". Here, on her behalf, is my thank you.

Thomas,  [wave]

Yaaaaaaaaaaay!!!!! 

Love and Mercy is a simple song structurally BUT it's all about the interpretation and she had to have nailed it! I love cello.  I played (first chair double bass) in our college orchestra so couldn't help but to hear cellos all of the time [smile]  I think that it would be beautiful - cello and voice.  Keep us posted as to where to all goes.  Hoping to see or hear it somehow.  CHEERS. 

MORE to check out (but don't change the formula now):

I like the ritard at the end.  ^^^^
This is REALLY good:

With You Still Believe in Me ending  ^^^^
With a ritard and nice ending:


EVERYTHING and YOUR performance all a tribute to Brian!
Glad to be of some small assistance.

I would love to hear the cello and voice arrangement! It sounds like that would be amazing!
