"Forever" is a song written by Dennis Wilson and his close friend Gregg Jakobson. It was released in 1970 as the ninth track on the Beach Boys' Sunflower album. The song, along with the rest of the album, was produced by the Beach Boys.

The lead vocal is sung by Dennis. His brother Brian declared, "'Forever' has to be the most harmonically beautiful thing I've ever heard. It's a rock and roll prayer."[1]
