You Never Give Me Your Money

This song,  I love. It reminds me of my youngest son who would sing it all the time when he was in preschool.

Octopus's Garden


When my uncle used to babysit my sister and me, he'd put this on (among other kid friendly songs) and we'd sing and dance to it. So for sentimental reasons I'm not ready to let it go just yet... so my vote goes to You Never Give Me Your Money.

Both classic songs. I have to go with Let It Be.
9  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Question about how tracks are broken up on live concert albums (digital) on: November 10, 2017, 03:20:41 PM
I'm making a compilation of BB live tracks from the officially released concert albums (purchased from iTunes), and I'm just wondering if anyone here knows why tracks on a live album are often broken up in such a way that the intro to the next song is at the end of the previous one. It's not true in every case, but it's common enough that there must be a reason for it. Why not break the tracks up so that each song is sort of self-contained with its own intro/stage banter and subsequent applause/thanks?

I want a BW Christmas show in my area! Afro

Me too! I doubt it would happen in that short space of time, but I would consider traveling stateside for this depending on the date and location.

I love Ex's and Oh's by Elle King. It has a very Spectorian vibe about it for sure, right down to the way she sings the "oh oh oh's they haunt me" line. But I agree her singing style seems kind of ubiquitous. British singer Paloma Faith is another to add to the list of female singers with "that voice". But I love Paloma too! Actually I bought Elle King's album after seeing her live, that girl can belt it. Her voice fills a room.

I'd add Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats. I can't get enough of their sound. I can't pinpoint exactly who/what they sound like, it's like such a vast fusion of classic sounds that it's almost something completely new.

I used to think the Beatles were the be all and end all of bands Ė nothing could ever top them. Thatís a very narrow minded view, I admit, but Iíve obviously changed my opinion since becoming a BB fan. It doesnít mean I donít still hold the Beatles in very high regard; I think its more that I can see them a bit more in the context of their time and balance them against what else was going on. And by what else was going on I mean the BB's.

They do deserve to be seen as being in the same neighbourhood of invention and ground breakage as the Beatles, and thatís a perspective I want to share with others who may have had similar ideas as I had. I remember one time several years ago a friend of mine whose knowledge of and taste in music I trust without question told me that the Beatles and the Beach Boys had a friendly rivalry, and for a short time were basically equals on the global music stage, and I was shocked.

I didnít start listening to the Beach Boys that day ( or that year, even) but it planted a seed in me. I remembered him telling me that often enough that when the time was right, I did start listening. Itís a seed I very much appreciate and I want to plant more of them, wherever I can.  

I wouldnít say Iím on a crusade to convert people into BB fans, I just want to be someone who plants those seeds. Itís not up to me where they sprout or take root.

Why do I care what other people think of the Beach Boys? On a personal level, of course it would be awesome if everyone I know were to become hardcore Beach Boys fans so I could gush about the music with them. But it's also maybe about giving back to the Beach Boys for all they have given us.

Wonderful post! Agree with everything. Also, I think their music is inexhaustible. I always find something new and beautiful that I hadn't noticed before.  And it is definitely angelic and out of this world - it's Johann Sebastian Beach!

Agreed. I am currently obsessed with the Live albums and as if I wasn't already aware of how ethereal this music is, the BB world just keeps opening up. I feel so thankful to have had the 'a-ha' moment that led to this.

I can't believe it. So heartbroken over this. RIP Tom.

I love this so much. But whenever I hear it, I do tend to think of this:

(Bernadette Peters and Steve Martin, from The Jerk, 1979. Also a very lovely version, not even a joke! Except for that trumpet...)

Disregard dumb "look like humans" lists, this is THE human, looks familiar, don't you think? It could be your buddy, neighbor, local youth, ancestor, grandpa, grandpa's brother, your brother, even father. He's many people to everybody. To me, he bears resemblance to Anton Chekhov & Frank Zappa:



Salvador Dali.

I'm SUPER glad.

The Beach Boys arrived in my life at a time when I really needed them - they made a really terrible time in my life bearable, and now that that's over, they continue to stimulate my happy hormones like no other band. Even the sad stuff makes me  feel better. I don't think I've ever loved a band the way I love these guys. My life is absolutely better because of them.

Nice to see you posting, Z, but read the OP. There's answer to your GV question & to the note about Sullivan & the like shows.

Btw, it doesn't show you picked SU.

Woops, I forgot to click the Submit button. Fixed that.

I see now I missed your conditions for inclusion in the poll. I'm still recovering from the weekend, LOL.
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / Polls / Re: Which BBs clip do you like the best? on: September 11, 2017, 07:14:58 AM
I picked Surf's Up.

But I love the SJB clip also, and the Lonely Sea one, too.

Good Vibrations - which one? fire hall or the studio footage? I'll take the studio footage one.

1. Surf's Up
2. Sloop John B.
3. Lonely Sea
4. Good Vibrations (studio footage)
5. That Same Song

not listed - the 1964 Ed Sullivan Show clip of I Get Around (not the miming one by the car, the one where they're actually playing).
