Sounds of Sunshine
Sounds of Sunshine were an American pop vocal ensemble from Los Angeles, California consisting of three brothers. The group released one album on Ranwood Records in 1971, which peaked on the Billboard 200 at #187. Its title track, "Love Means (You Never Have to Say You're Sorry)", was a minor U.S. hit, peaking at #39 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song found a much wider audience among adults, reaching #5 on Billboard's Easy Listening survey. The title of the song was taken from a line from the 1970 film Love Story. On the back cover of Dead Kennedys' Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables album, a press shot of the group found by singer Jello Biafra at a garage sale (without anything identifying the people in the photo as the members of the group) was used without their permission; the group subsequently sued Biafra's label Alternative Tentacles, forcing various alterations to be made to the album art.
