On bands that sound like The Beach Boys

Draft One

"I have an important question for you."
"OK."
"Do you like The Beatles?"
"Yes."
"Do you like bands that sound like The Beatles?"
"Like?"
"The Beach Boys?"
"Well, I actually like a lot of bands that sound like The Beach Boys. And I love 'Good Vibrations.' But I kinda hate The Beach Boys."

Microsoft Word Thesaurus Version

"I have a momentous query for you."
"OK."
"Do you take pleasure in The Beatles?"
"Certainly."
"Do you indulge in groups that are musically reminiscent of The Beatles?"
"Such as?"
"The Beach Boys?"
"Well, I actually revel in a large number of bands that are musically reminiscent of The Beach Boys. And I venerate “Good Vibrations.” But I kinda feel odium toward The Beach Boys."
