"Solar System" is a song written by Brian Wilson for the American rock band The Beach Boys. It was released on their 1977 album Love You with a lead vocal by Brian Wilson. The song uses a triple meter, reminiscent of the 1968 Friends album and contains flashes of choral brilliance.[according to whom?] The subject and lyrics are amateurish and the song is quirky and baffling, but it is ultimately endearing.[according to whom?]
