That Lucky Old Sun (Just Rolls around Heaven All Day)" is a 1949 popular song with music by Beasley Smith and words by Haven Gillespie. Like "Ol' Man River", its lyrics contrast the toil and intense hardship of the singer's life with the obliviousness of the natural world. The biggest hit version of the song was by Frankie Laine. This recording was released by Mercury Records as catalog number 5316

Redirected from Scott Bennett (musician)). It was written in collaboration with Wilson's bandmate Scott Bennett with spoken word poetry commissioned from Van Dyke Parks. As a concept album, the work largely derives from the 1949 song "That Lucky Old Sun", originally recorded by Frankie Laine.

That Lucky Old Sun rarely approaches the subtleties of the classic Beach Boys sound. 60. This album leaves no doubt that the former Beach Boy is now fully recovered from the 1967 nervous breakdown that effectively stalled his career for decades. At 66, Brian Wilson still managed to give us one more great album, and I'm eternally grateful for that. 0 of 0 users found this helpful. 1. Dreadful, dreadful, dreadful.

That's what That Lucky Old Sun is all about-musically brilliant, beautifully produced & executed, with understanding and compassion and insights about his own life as well as life in general. It's gratifying and upbeat, melodically beautiful, with a rhythm as infectious as the Morning Beat he sings about on the album. Nothing, but nothing, could be further from the truth!

that lazy old California life.
