1  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Who other than Dennis would have been good in a film? on: May 26, 2017, 06:31:15 AM
I disagree very much that Dennis had looks & charisma. 100% disagree. But that's beside the point. My issue is with people caring about charisma than the actual playing which shouldn't be. It weirds me out. I definitely don't see films for charisma. That & acting talent = 2 different things. That people even discuss who's got charisma is really bizarre, to begin with.

Regarding Beatles - disagree as well. BBs had sense of humor alright, it's just different than so-called British humor. Plus, again, it's got nothing to do with being bad actor.

Such funny thread question - "other than Dennis"? Roll Eyes More like "including Dennis". Let's get real, OK? Dennis was "terrible", to use Amy B.'s word. I was bored by the whole thing in "Two-Lane Blacktop". Dennis surely didn't shine with superb acting skills there. We must be glad that nobody went to star in films. It really annoys me big time to see actors trying to sing & singers/ musicians beginning movie career. Everybody must do what they can - know their place, you know?

& to say "lacked charisma" is stupid. Too bad people care about it like it's super-duper important thing. Bigger deal than the actual acting/ communication/ whichever talent? Roll Eyes
Besides, NO musician - Beatles too - is good in films. It isn't just BBs. For some weeeeeird reason, people downplay BBs with these shoulda/ woulda/ coulda been bad actors when nobody could, in fact.

"Make It Big" features Carl, Mike, Al & Brian. Since Al sings there, "Make It Big" counts as "vocals by Al Jardine".

2. Nice pretty tune, wouldn't skip if listened to album start-finish. But wouldn't choose it solely to hear it.

Yes I clicked on Then I Kissed Her
Ah, it was you. Figured it's bringahorseinhere?'s vote ("I did vote for 'then I kissed' her'").

Then I Kissed Her is great.

My favorite Al vocals are from concerts when he sang H & V.
Did you pick song in this poll?

Well said, Mr. Jude!

you are great at these, keep up your great work.  I love your polls.
they are fresh, new and exciting.
Yes indeed but to be fair, this thread is MY idea. police

That said, you're very right in this bit:

Quote
Al has done some wonderful vocals that are hard to dismiss, but I did
vote for 'then I kissed' her'.  I can't hear in my mind anybody else singing it.
kind of like Mike singin 'California Girls' or Carl on 'God Only Knows'.
Alan owns this.

Happy to see some fans appreciate "Then I Kissed Her" by Al, NOT the boring girl group stuff. He DOES own it. 3D
10  Smiley Smile Stuff / Polls / Re: Favorite Lead Vocals by Al Jardine on: May 25, 2017, 04:36:54 AM
"Help Me Rhonda" is No.1 due to Al's terrific lead vocal! 3D
11  Smiley Smile Stuff / Polls / Re: Favorite Lead Vocals by Al Jardine on: May 25, 2017, 04:08:32 AM
Duh. This is BBs list. Solo works don't count, don't you see? Isn't there Al vocal you like in BBs?
12  Smiley Smile Stuff / Polls / Re: Favorite Lead Vocals by Al Jardine on: May 24, 2017, 10:21:50 PM
"I Know There's An Answer" wouldn't be cool without Al's vocals. Never liked Brian's voice here & Mike sings very short to care. Smb. - the OP? - picked "Then I Kissed Her" - great choice! I really hate girl group sound, Al-sung version is definitive. Ditto "The Times They Are A-Changin'" about which many complain but they don't do it in regards Al's performance but the "party" noises. So they must've liked it. "Lady Lynda" showcased his mellowing. "The TM Song" - Al at his grooviest. 3D

Can "Runaway", "Out In The Country", "Lady Liberty", "On Broadway" be added?

David Niven's Bond was the best imo. Then Connery with Moore.
14  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Barry Manilow on: May 24, 2017, 05:59:12 AM
Oh! but it makes a great introduction for Mr Love every single damn show to acknowledge it.
who can get tired of hearing it over and over, year after year  Undecided
it's a single classic, no child would have ever heard if they weren't from the 70's...
Agree 100%. Just that it's "classic" Air Quotes
15  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Barry Manilow on: May 24, 2017, 05:35:05 AM
It's really funny & absurd that such travesty as "I Write The Songs" won Grammy. Is the jury or whoever picked it dumb or what? Cheesy
16  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Barry Manilow on: May 24, 2017, 12:54:19 AM
Looks as ugly as Phil Spector.

Funny too that he does it for such boring schmaltz of the song, ha!

Didn't see it but sounds like that Robert Wuhl (character?) lacked in intellect dept if he misheard BBs as girl group. Roll Eyes

"This Boy"
"We Can Work It Out"

I'm a-ok with LTS being ousted - can't top The King of rock & roll Little Richard!!! 3D
But am glad it got to near finals beating some John stuff!Smiley

"Soulful Old Man Sunshine" - it's cool vocally, joyful yet I don't like it. Wouldn't know how to go about explaining it.
21  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Favourite Beach Boy Movie/TV Show Moment on: May 23, 2017, 04:43:45 AM
Hey, cool idea! There is thread "BBs in movies" but it's namecheck. Anyhoo, rats floating to "Surfin' USA" in "Graveyard Shift". Bizarre match.

3. Nice ditty with cool drumming.
23  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: The Beatles Survivor #8: Past Masters Vol. I on: May 21, 2017, 09:23:12 PM
Fare thee well, boring "Yes It Is". Shoo shoo shoo Smiley

"This Boy"
"Day Tripper"

It's pretty much the thread I've been waiting for and thought would never come.

Funny how life works.
Ha! Your past username even was "Wild_Honey_In_Stereo".

Really glad LDC got 2 "1"s. Smiley As it should.

"In My Room" - 5. 'Nuff said. 3D
