"Wouldn't It Be Nice'' was not a real long song, but it's a very 'up' song. It expresses the frustration of youth, what you can't have, what you really want and you have to wait for it." - Brian Wilson
"It's a song that people who are young and in love can appreciate and respond to, because it revolves around the things they've always wanted to do: live together, sleep together, wake up together - do everything together.'' - Tony Asher (songwriter)
''I can remember in "Wouldn't It Be Nice" that we'd both had the experience of being too young to have what the rest of the world would call a serious relationship with a girl and yet wanting to be able to have it taken seriously. It was autobiographical from the point of view of both of us. We were writing about what we both knew and had experienced.'' - Tony Asher (songwriter)
