I've definitely never heard that one in the supermarket or on the radio!

So I was watching a video on a Christmas market in Hamburg, Germany.

Starting at 2:17, guess what starts playing?

Tusk is a great one.  The Smile moment for me are the "Oooh wash's" in "Walk a Thin Line."
That song sounds more like it would be from 20/20, Sunflower, Surf's Up or Holland.

Somebody aught to compile a list of albums that were influenced by Pet Sounds. If they already haven't, that is.

Am I the only one who cries over that song?

Yes!!

BTW, I think this is my favorite song of theirs. Great outro!

I'm going to bump this thread because I've been listening to their Greatest Hits album a lot the last week. In addition to the song above, a song I didn't pay much attention to the first time I listened through the album is "Like Always." I'm not sure if I'd ever heard the song before I bought this album, but I have no idea why it wasn't a bit hit. It (and Everything That Touches You) are just breathtakingly brilliant. Brian Wilson caliber, I'd say. Maybe even better.

The entire middle part - the section starting with "Girl ..." - is simply brilliant (it's like a chorus, and a double bridge, and the chorus repeated, or something like that).

This thread is interesting for reading about how Lyme Disease can be mistaken for Alzheimer's!

Best wishes Brian and get better!

It occurred to me as I heard it on the radio this morning ... could My Generation be considered the first punk rock song?

Nice article. Didn't know Brian and Carl weren't happy about the arrangement.

Hey thanks for the link, I gotta watch it.
18  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Pink Floyd Appreciation Thread on: May 19, 2019, 05:30:06 PM
If anybody here has never seen Dark Side of the Rainbow, you need to click on this link and watch it now. You will never listen to Dark Side of the Moon the same again:

Might want to have a beer or two first.

RIP. Sad When I read the news yesterday, I didn't even know she was still alive!

Whenever I hear of Doris Day I think of this:

Does Dennis meeting Charles Manson count as a career mistake?

At the very least I suppose you could say they should not have released, let alone altered, his song.

Student Demonstration Time on Surf's Up. Really the 1 song that messes up a classic album
This.
22  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: why are songs repeated on the early albums, ie. on: March 20, 2019, 03:24:49 PM
I suppose when you're expected to crank out as many as a couple albums a year, you end up repeating some songs.

Iím so sad, I donít know what to say. Hal Blaine was such a great musician and friend that I canít put it into words. Hal taught me a lot, and he had so much to do with our success - he was the greatest drummer ever. We also laughed an awful lot. Love, Brian

RIP Mr Blaine.
