Some of the best Beatles tribute songs came from unexpected places. The Beach Boys’ Mike Love decided to pay tribute to The Beatles’ George Harrison through song. Love explained why he had had so much respect for the “Got My Mind Set on You” singer. He also compared the way audiences reacted to his band and The Beatles during the 1960s.

During a 2023 interview with Forbes, Love said his song “Pisces Brothers” is a tribute to George. Love felt that the two of them were “pieces brothers” because of their shared astrological sign. Love released the tune in honor of what would have been George’s 71st birthday in 2014. The Beach Boy revealed that “Pisces Brothers” is one of Love’s favorite tunes to perform and one of his favorite tunes in general.

“It’s a poem that I put to music,” Love explained. And I love doing it every night. It just takes me back to those times, you know. There’s very few songs touch me as emotionally as that, although the ‘Warmth of the Sun’ is one.” For context, “The Warmth of the Sun” is the song Love wrote with Brian Wilson about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
