I Can Hear Music Lyrics

Vinyl Record Memories of this
Classic Beach Boys Cover Song.


Contemporary Christian singer, Kathy Troccoli, sings this classic song with The Beach Boys.

I can hear music is a cover of the classic Beach Boys song by Kathy Troccoli with added lyrics.

She's a very popular contemporary Christian singer.

I always enjoyed the Beach Boys version but Kathy just multiplied the WOW factor by a million. One of those really nice "feel good" love songs.

I Can Hear Music was originally released in 1966 by the Ronettes and was later covered by the Beach Boys in 1969.

It was released on their 1969 album 20/20 with Carl Wilson on lead vocals and was their first single released in stereo.

At the time Brian was losing more and more interest in producing for the Beach Boys so younger brother Carl stepped in as the role of producer and lead Beach Boy.

This song is considered by many as Carl Wilson's first taste at being the "leader" of the group.

An important, and maybe not a much known fact, is that this song was also notable for being the first Beach Boys song that Brian did not sing on.

The song reached #24 in the US and #10 in the UK.


I Can Hear Music Lyrics - How did Kathy Troccoli get on a Beach Boys Album?

The Beach Boys 1996 out-of-print Stars & Stripes album.

In 1996 The Beach Boys re-recorded the song with Troccoli on lead vocals on the now out-of-print album Stars and Stripes Vol. 1.

The Beach Boys sing on the track as well, providing harmonies and backing vocals, as they did for all the various Country singers on that album.

Her recording was released as a single and hit #16 on the US Adult Contemporary singles chart.

Kathy's vocal is strong and true, helped of course by some stunning harmonies from the boys...just shows how good they really were together.

This cover is simply incredible. Such a beautiful collaboration with Kathy Troccoli and the Beach Boys.

Get ready for some really cool sounds from this talented lady. Sing along as I have provided the I Can Hear Music lyrics for your enjoyment.

There's no doubt, Brian and the Beach Boys are having fun and enjoying this great song with Kathy on lead vocals.  


I Can Hear Music
Written by Jeff Barry/Ellie Greenwich/Phil Spector
Originally performed by The Ronetts

Ahhhhhh oooooo

This is the way...I always dreamed it would be
The way that it is, oh oh...When you are holding me
I never had a love of my own...Maybe that's why when we're all alone

I can hear music...I can hear music
The sound of the city baby...seems to disappear
I can hear music...Sweet sweet music
Whenever you touch me baby...Whenever you're near

Lovin' you...It keeps me satisfied
And I can't explain, oh no...The way I'm feeling inside
You look at me we kiss and then...I close my eyes and here it comes again

I can hear music...I can hear music
The sound of the city baby seems to disappear
I can hear music...Sweet sweet music
Whenever you touch me baby...Whenever you're near

I hear the music all the time, yeah
I hear the music, hold me tight now baby
I hear the music all the time
I hear the music
I hear the music (baby)

Ahhhhh

I can hear music...I can hear music
The sound of the city baby seems to disappear
I can hear music...Sweet sweet music
Whenever you touch me baby...Whenever you're near

repeat first two lines of above verse....(fades)
