Love & Mercy : Favorite Beach Boy song?

Favorite Beach Boy song?

California Girls

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

Wouldn't it Be Nice, Good Vibrations, Surf's Up, three way tie.

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

You can't beat Good Vibrations, but I really like the Beach Boys Love You album (incredibly underrated), so I'll say The Night Was so Young.

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

Three Words: "Don't Worry, Baby"

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

great choice, definetly in my top 5. please let me wonder is another great ballad, and so underrated.

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

Good Vibrations
[big gap]
Surf's Up
Caroline, No
Sloop John B.
Don't Worry Baby

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

Great album! Especially love Airplane.

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

Probably a clich answer, but: Child is the Father of the Man, Surf's Up and Good Vibrations.

I do prefer to hear them all in chronological order on Smile though. Much more powerful that way.

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

god only knows

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

All great choices, but I will always have a special place in my heart for Hushabye.

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

Good Vibrations, God Only Knows, We'll have fun, Get Around and Barbara Ann

Noble Surfer, Getcha Back, California Girls, I Get Around, Fun Fun Fun, Surfin' USA, God Only Knows.

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

God Only Knows

Feel Flows

Good Vibrations

'Til I Die

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

Oh God there are so many to pick from. But I guess I would have to say Warmth of the Sun.

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

Feel Flows +1

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

Very hard to pick just one, so I won't. Dead even tie between Wouldn't it be nice and God only knows. Other favorites include When I grow up (to be a man) Sloop John B. and Rock and Roll to the rescue.

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

"Sloop John B" always reminds me of a party.

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

Until I Die

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

Good vibrations

God only knows

I just wasn't made for these times

Don't worry, baby

Sloop jon b.

Grant discovered raptor eggs in Jurassic Park

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

Good vibrations,( Esp. now after seeing the movie) , Sloop John B, California girls, Fun, Fun, Fun, Don't worry baby

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

1. Good Vibrations
2. This Whole World (easily the most underrated)
3. God Only Knows
4. I Get Around
5. Wonderful Surf's Up suite from Smile (on a per minute basis; for total pleasure, maybe a notch or two higher, especially if there were only a complete Beach Boys version).

Best song not on the Good Vibrations box set (which instantly turned this fan of their hits into a Brian-is-God fanatic), besides the obvious "Let Him Run Wild" (which Brian personally vetoed and later expressed regret that he did so) and "Don't Talk (Put Your Head on My Shoulder)": "Kiss Me Baby."

Most underrated early surfing and car song: "Car Crazy Cutie."


Prepare your minds for a new scale of physical, scientific values, gentlemen.

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

All I Wanna Do off Sunflower is also a huge absence on both boxsets. To think that haunting track hasn't shown up anywhere other than Sunflower.

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

I'm going to have to dig out my copy and play it again! It's been years.


Prepare your minds for a new scale of physical, scientific values, gentlemen.

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

Heroes and Villians

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

I Get Around, Don't Worry Baby, Here Today, Let's Go Away for Awhile, Good Vibrations, Til I Die, This Whole World.

I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked.

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

1. Feel Flows
2. God Only Knows
3. Surf's Up
4. Add Some Music To Your Day
5. Long Promised Road
6. Pet Sounds
7. Sail On Sailor
8. I Know There's An Answer

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

The question is moot. It's impossible to pick just one.

'Heroes and Villains' is one hell of a song, though.. Brian and Mr. Parks really struck gold with that one.

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

Too hard to pick ONE - I mean it! I could go on and on:

SAIL ON SAILOR

Time to get alone

Til I die

Where I belong

Good Vibrations

Heroes and Villains

Please let me wonder
God only knows
ETC

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

Sloop John B
California Girls
Good Vibrations
Sail On Sailor
Don't Worry Baby
Surfer Girl

And a very underrated one: In My Room (ultimate Brian Wilson-type song)

God Only Knows

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

Surf's Up is the greatest song I've ever heard.

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

God Only Knows
Don't Worry, Baby
Surfer Girl
Wouldn't It Be Nice


These have all been remixed from the Masters and they're available this way on iTunes.

"Don't Worry, Baby" had Brian singing on one side and the chorus on the other (possibly the instruments, too) - but the remixed version has Brian and the instruments in the CENTER while the chorus is sung on the right and left.

Otherwise, it's exactly the same as the original.

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

Alyse, is this the re-mixed version?

Re: Favorite Beach Boy song?

Yes - anytime you hear (nowadays) Brian's singing sounding in the center and the other guys singing on the left & right, it's the remixed version (unless it's mono, I guess).

Brian was singing on one side and the others guys on the opposite side in the original stereo version.
