Just one vote?! I wish we could have 4 or 5, or something, this is pretty much impossible  Tongue

I voted for the SDSN version of Rhonda, it's the most no-brainery one.

My other choices would be:

Cotton Fields (20/20)
Take A Load Off Your Feet
Pitter Patter
Loop De Loop
From There to Back Again

Nice! A very happy sunshiney sketch that perfectly describes the excitement on this board right now  Cheesy

Recently I watched Stephen King's "It" and enjoyed the scene where the character played by Harry Anderson drives back into town singing "I Get Around"  Smiley

Any Brooklyn 9-9 fans out there notice that there is like at least one Beach Boys reference in every episode? Maybe I'm seeing something that's not there, but when you watch a bunch of episodes back to back you start to notice things... anyway, the most obvious reference is the one where Linetti and Boyle's mom and dad are getting married and Peralta wants the DJ to play Kokomo, LOL. But seriously... it'd be great if someone else could corroborate that I'm not imagining the BB references in that show... they're subtle and sometimes obscure, but they're there!

At least it's not brown?  I'm really looking forward to Sunshine Tomorrow but... dang. if that's really the cover, it's leaving me feeling the opposite of warm.

I've just signed in Twitter, and been looking someone good to follow.

Now I have some questions:

・Who are good to follow when you want some discussions/news about music, especially related to Beach Boys?
・Who are good to follow when you want some funny stuff?

Stupid questions though, I'm glad if some of you answer me.

BB related: @thevandykeparks @beachboyslegacy
Funny stuff: @XplodingUnicorn @savagechickens @WorstLastWords
And I have just found this: @beachboysvine (funny and BB related)
I second VDP on twitter, he is very active and posts some interesting history and songs!
Agreed, I learn something new from VDP every day!

There is one hilarious account which is no longer active (and I'm trying to find it but it might be gone now) which tweeted as if it was an episode guide to a (made up) Beach Boys tv show. I read that whole account from the first tweet to the last and laughed out loud big time. I'll keep looking for that one, and I'll post it if I find it.


https://mobile.twitter.com/bbsitcom

Yep, that's the one! Thanks Smiley

That was my account. I stopped tweeting because it seemed that there wasn't much of an audience for it. It's cool to know that someone was reading it and enjoying it. Somewhere I have a bunch that I never got around to tweeting. Perhaps one of these days I will look for them and put them up.
Keep doing it if you have the time! I read it last night, it's quite funny.
Would love to see you tweet more episodes! I'll be watching Smiley

Always liked Dennis' vocal on ITSOTN.

Dennis reminds me a ton of Elvis Costello in his vocals on that song.

Getting started on Twitter is definitely a bit challenging. I got on it a few years ago after saying forever that I would never sign up,and it took awhile to get going but now I really enjoy it. It's now my primary source for events likes shows and festivals and what have you. I actually don't have many personal contacts on it at all, and I like it that way.

I will say I think it's highly subjective. To start with when I was looking for accounts to follow, I just kind of went "what stuff do I like?" LOL. Sounds kind of dumb but it was a start. So I followed the the local art gallery, concert venues, events mags, and a few bands that I like. Then you start to get suggestions based on accounts you've followed, and you find out about some other cool accounts that way. And if someone follows me and I like what they're about, I'll follow them back.

As for Beach Boys related accounts, I only follow three: the official Beach Boys account, which rarely tweets anything, Brian's official twitter which basically just tweets the same as the facebook feed, and Al's account which tweets a bit more often but again, usually just whatever the facebook account posts. There are a few others which tweet photos of the band etc. but I never felt the need to follow every BB related twitter.

There is one hilarious account which is no longer active (and I'm trying to find it but it might be gone now) which tweeted as if it was an episode guide to a (made up) Beach Boys tv show. I read that whole account from the first tweet to the last and laughed out loud big time. I'll keep looking for that one, and I'll post it if I find it.

Anyway, I would suggest just starting to follow bands, concert venues, and local event magazines, and you'll start to see suggestions for other music-related accounts Smiley

I didn't take any videos during the show itself because I just wanted to be fully present and not watch through my phone, but I took a few at the soundcheck in case anyone is interested  Smiley

Just came out of the Winnipeg show! Brian seemed to be in a good mood and sang well, particularly during the first set. I'm on my phone right now so I'll go into more detail when I get access to a computer, but for now here's the set list:

River Deep Mountain High (intro)
California Girls
Dance Dance Dance
I Get Around
Shut Down
Little Deuce Coupe
Little Honda
Do It Again
Surfer Girl
Wake the World
Add Some Music
California Saga
Don't Worry Baby
Let Him Run Wild
Feel Flows
Wild Honey
Sail on Sailor

Break

Pet Sounds - with Row Row Row Your Boat after Don't Talk

Encore:
Good Vibrations
Help Me Rhonda
Barbara Ann
Surfin USA
Fun Fun Fun
Love and Mercy

Curiously, they did Salt Lake City at the soundcheck but it didn't make it into the show.

If Doc R had been on Rubber Soul, it absolutely would have outlived my earlier castaways from that album... but here... yeesh, what it's up against.

Doctor Robert

You guys, I Want to Tell You is such a good song...

And the ending wordless series of “ahhs” at the end of Melt Away, starting at 2:31, which are ONLY found on the 1988 original issue release:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GBTsx3J_0JU

These are simply so gorgeous, it’s beyond words.

They screwed the pooch when the BW88 album was reissued in 2000, and the “remastered” version is inadvertently missing them at the same timecode:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w9spymNA7PQ

and unfortunately, this “remastered” version is the “normal” go-to version for most people, including how it was for me (for years) when I first heard the song. It was only much later when, thanks to this board, I learned of the proper original 1988 mix, and was BLOWN AWAY by hearing this small, but powerful part.

This "remastered" version should have been quarantined and banished, but it's out there and most people unfortunately think that's THE version of the song, when in fact it's a mistake.



Oh my gosh, I just heard this version for the first time... it's beautiful. I can't stop listening to it. Thanks for sharing this, I had no idea.

How short does it have to be to be considered very short?

The stand outs:

The "aaaahhhhh" vocalizations at the end of You Still Believe In Me.

The Hum-Bee-Dum insert in the Smile Sessions version of Good Vibrations.

The "wait for it" aah-ooom-bop-diddit in This Whole World.

The instrumental section of Don't Worry Baby. Really. It just has a vibe about it...
