13. The Last Song (with Lana Del Rey-Does a recording with her vocal even exist?)
Why do many fancy her voice? Did I miss sth. & deep down the boring core there is really truly sth. precious?

2picture posted by Rocker: Al looks dandy in turtleneck & beret. 3D Mike should be clad in Scottish skirt. It'd fit the top better than trousers.

Really? This is interesting, is it Mike-invented or popular fact quitting dairy deletes nasality?

Yes, and nobody ever suggested Brian ever had or ever would hand over *every* lead on one of his albums to someone else (it's not a bad idea in theory, for Brian to essentially serve the Van Dyke Parks role from "Orange Crate Art", but it's not something anybody has said has or ever would realistically happen).
Yes, I got it by now.

Quote
While it's highly unlikely Brian would have the time or interest to fully write and produce an Al album, if Al was working on an album and asked Brian to write (or dig into his bag of old songs for) a few things for Al's album and produce it, I don't see anything far-fetched about that in light of their post-2012 working relationship.
Agree with these theories. It's good idea but here's the difference - your accent was about the Al album with Brian as the writer/ producer, when I paid attention to Brian's sharing leads with Al even in his album. If Postcard is indication, it's impossible for Brian to *just* write song without singing there (not really songs he did write, be it new or decades-old material). From that standpoint, full "Al Jardine" vocals album can't be. Coz, you know, Brian likes singing. I'd even say he likes it better than playing keyboards.

Yes, Mike's voice aged. It's good to hear it's less nasal.

Hate to get into semantics but, I didn't deny Brian's giving away the leads to Al etc. I added "every". No Pier Pressure's chockful with guest singers & even there he shares lead.

& thanks to correct the misunderstanding but I doubt that he'd give Al shine in Al's album alone. Esp. if Brian would be the writer. He'd be singing in any capacity. It goes back to the "Brian likes/ enjoys singing" bit.

Meant to say "give away *every* lead". Since HeyJude said "Al Jardine" album, i.e. with Al leads only. Can't see it being possible. Brian's very into singing, esp. new songs. He may passed the leads to the other singers but he *still* did feature through No Pier Pressure, vocally.
9  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: \ on: September 21, 2017, 04:58:34 AM
though an "Al Jardine" album penned by Brian could be pretty amazing
Yes. But think you'll agree Brian really likes singing, no way he'd give away leads to Al, Blondie, smb. else.

It didn't get to even 100 signatures. Pity. I did the best to add as well, at the begin, but they said the email is disallowed (what). Still, thanks to arrange this, GV1966.

"Hello Skinny" by The Residents: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0uJxfQJChQ4
I decided now it's the best track in Duck Stab (used to be "Blue Rosebuds" which is still in Top 3).

5 to the best SU! 3D Beautiful lead by Brian, it fits him better than Carl.

I was going to change my vote from USSR to Martha, just to save Blackbird, but I decided since I am so late in the tally I lost that right.  Cry

Thank you, it helped. Brian sings jolly good. Face it, he likes singing, it's telling. The middle 8 - uber-cool. 3D Surf guitar band meets Christmas. I'm looking at you, "Rocking Around the Christmas Tree"/ "Jingle Bell Rock". 3D Besides, non-stop tambourine must be one of the biggest earcandies in songs.

That said, I'm with Bicyclerider - didn't like the "oooh"s. It's typical Brian "ethereal" harmony, a la Imagination/ No Pier Pressure. The song grooves, what for make it poppier? Could be redone.
15  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: What outtake should've been included on BW Anthology instead of Some Sweet Day? on: September 18, 2017, 06:30:39 AM
Apart from Angels in Love, they are all dated from middle 90s, sessions with Andy Paley. They're all booted, and have been a bit more popular and  available than Some Sweet Day.

By the way, I can't disagree that Some Sweet Day is a nice choice. It has some good vibes, though it's a bit flawed (the sound of piano- or keyboard- is pretty awful).
In computer there is bunch of songs "Demos & Outtakes by Brian Wilson". SSD Track 10.You see, the songs I like 1. sung by by smb. else ("Out in the Country", "London's A Lonely Town") 2. feature young voice ("Beginning of the End") 3. feature 2 vocals ("Elbow 64"). It'd be bad move to add these to new BW comp. I stand by SSD. Btw, "It's Not Easy Being Me" is really boring. What do you like about it?

No.

Well, that's a tasteless title.
You mean the thread title?
18  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: What outtake should've been included on BW Anthology instead of Some Sweet Day? on: September 17, 2017, 06:30:30 PM
SSD is nice choice. I don't even know some of the listed below.
19  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: AREN'T YOU GLAD You're A Beach Boys fan? on: September 17, 2017, 06:12:35 PM
Yes though I wouldn't say it "improved my quality of life". If you count forgetting bad music (various mainstream radio trash) & delving into the 60s-70s music as that, it sure did.
20  Smiley Smile Stuff / Polls / Re: Discuss Every Beach Boys Song Day By Day on: September 17, 2017, 06:05:45 PM
It's really Brian during "walk with me Henry"? I hear "I need some water man".
21  Smiley Smile Stuff / Polls / Re: Discuss Every Beach Boys Song Day By Day on: September 17, 2017, 05:36:03 AM
Brian sings this song much better than Carl, good arrangement too. Or should I say wonderful. 5.
22  Smiley Smile Stuff / Polls / Re: Which BBs clip do you like the best? on: September 17, 2017, 05:26:34 AM
Not  listed: Forever, Central Park 1971.
Thanks to join, thorgil, but this doesn't count. They did too many shows it would be thousands to choose from. Here it's clips, movie features, studio footage. Read the OP. police
23  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Songs you are obsessing over. on: September 17, 2017, 05:17:43 AM
You listed popular. What's the favorite obscure album track?
24  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Songs you are obsessing over. on: September 16, 2017, 05:54:54 PM
I know this wasn't directed towards me
It's fine. You summed up many views about George. We agree. What can you say about Ringo? Liked hits or beyond it? Listened to the newest to date?

John is a close second.
Which is favorite song by John barring Beatles? In some magazine issue John's friends & fam each picked their favorites. Sean listed "God". I agree with this choice, imo it's the coolest musically/ vocally in John's catalog.
25  Smiley Smile Stuff / Polls / Re: Discuss Every Beach Boys Song Day By Day on: September 16, 2017, 05:41:28 PM
5. What they said.
