1  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: UPDATE: Brian performing on Colbert 6/4 at 11:35 PM ET on CBS on: June 07, 2020, 07:15:11 PM
I loved Brian's appearance. Oh well, I'm aware that most BB/BW fans are old and white (like me). I actually find Colbert, Myers and Corden truly funny. It helps me through this nightmare we're living. But I guess my opinions are even less popular here now (if that's possible). Life is an endless lesson.
I'm with you on this one. I too am old and white and regularly watch Colbert and James Corden. I catch Seth Myers online. What a pleasure it was to see what is now a rare appearance of Brian Wilson on network TV.

Thanks! Here's Corden back when we could have nice things - absolutely brilliant:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ln3wAdRAim4


Wow, that was awesome! I have occasionally thought that Brian would be a real coup of a Carpool Karaoke guest, even though he's a tough interview. I can just see James cruising down the highway with Brian singing Beach Boys car songs. Ah well, a girl can dream.

Elora strikes again! Let's see how many of you can actually stand to listen to this from beginning to end. It's 31 minutes of Mike Love singing the first word of "Be True to Your School" in versions dating from 1963 through to the present.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pOAEDxH6MYE&t=136s

It’s been discussed here before, but some random guest was asked to sing a tune, we think at a wedding reception. Unfortunately he’s no longer available mores the pity.

Anyway, ‘God Only Knows’ would be my number one wedding song. Congratulations!

Actually, it was at the opening of his nephew Michael Wilson's (son of Dennis) restaurant, but I get your point.

Fascinating!

I got the same message from "Brian Wilson" on Instagram some time ago. I ignored it.

Check out this concert recording:  https://youtu.be/zQ50jFhnebk

Blondie had just left the band.  Some live rarities here including Hincshe singing "I'm Waiting For the Day" (!) and "The Warmth of the Sun" with an absolutely stunning lead vocal by Carl!


Wow, stunning is right! Thanks for posting.
8  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: What do we really know about the late 60's- early 70's Murry Wilson? on: May 05, 2020, 09:07:59 PM
I have wondered what Murry thought of Carl becoming a conscientious objector during the war in Vietnam.
9  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Carl mentioned in new Bob Dylan song on: May 05, 2020, 08:58:10 PM
Exactly. Hence my question of why he mentioned Carl Wilson instead of Warren Zevon or any of the other people who sang backup on that song. "Murder Most Foul" contains such a large list of musicians that I suppose we'll never truly know why.

"KoCuomo" parody - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LnH-uA-Pog0&feature=youtu.be&fbclid=IwAR113c_zxmjJqXLjGOC-cGpEh0Jg_lniUFP1-g7ophdSv4gfIot3YTJkr3A

Does anyone have any opinions as to why Dylan named Carl Wilson in particular in reference to Desperadoes Under the Eaves? Why not Warren Zevon, or any of the other people who sang background vocals on that song?
12  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: New Mike Love single on: May 01, 2020, 09:28:04 AM
I really wish I could get on board with this, but I just can't. Today we'll hit 236,000 coronavirus deaths worldwide. We're not yet ready to have fun, fun, fun in the sun. The families of the dead are especially not ready. Also, while I commend some of the lyrics, such as when he suggests that we do what the doctors say, I could do with out the jingoistic "God bless America, that's how we roll." Yes, we have suffered more deaths than any other nation, but this is truly a pandemic. No nation has escaped it.

Let's not get back to having fun, fun, fun in the sun just yet. Not until the experts tell us it's safe.

What a great article! Thank you!

Great analysis! Thanks for sharing. Also, thanks to the admins for approving me. This is my first post. I love this board. I have already learned so much!
