Today's song is She's Got Rhythm.

Brian's falsetto sounds a bit strained but I think it's a decent song. It moves along nicely. It's listenable. THREE

Is the follow-up album to 15BO called "The Beach Boys Love You", or simply "Love You"?

It's proper title is "The Beach Boys Love You". Same like "The Beach Boys Today!"

Goodies and Stinkers. THREE

The '85 album fascinates me. I can't say I'm a fan completely; I only like 5 songs on it. But it is the last Beach Boys album with more than one good song on it (for me anyway) until TWGMTR. While there are two Brian tunes on '85 that I enjoy, the album really belongs to Carl.

Anyway, neat footage. 'I'm So Lonely’ is one of those two Brian tunes I mentioned above. Sometimes I feel like I'm the only person that loves that song.

You're not the only one Summer_Days. I love 'I'm So Lonely' too. Probably my favorite song on the album

I wish I knew what program this footage is from.

I really like the BB85 album. I didn't at first. I used to have a hard time with the 80s production. But it doesn't bother me now. Lots of great songs on it.

Today's song is Still I Dream of It.

A very affecting ballad. Such a great delivery from Brian. One of his best from the 1970's. Very moving. FIVE

Sanford & Son will always be my favorite TV Show Theme

Today's song is It's Trying to Say.

Joyful indeed. I dig the bouncy happy feel about it, great backing harmonies as usual and Dennis' gruffy voice is very cool. Another two minutes of fun. FIVE
11  Smiley Smile Stuff / Polls / Re: Discuss Every Beach Boys Song Day By Day on: April 09, 2018, 12:10:34 PM
Today's song is Games Two Can Play.

Neat simple arrangement and production, and good humored lyrics make for a fun two minutes. FIVE
12  Smiley Smile Stuff / The Beach Boys Media / Re: Custom Beach Boys shirt designs on: April 06, 2018, 10:01:39 AM
Excellent stuff! Lucky Old Sun is my favorite one!
13  Smiley Smile Stuff / Polls / Re: Discuss Every Beach Boys Song Day By Day on: April 06, 2018, 06:27:23 AM
Today's song is Shortenin' Bread.

Unlike with the last song we discussed, Carl now appears to be totally into it. I dig his gritty vocals, and also Brian's bass voice. Better than the L.A. version. FOUR
14  Smiley Smile Stuff / Polls / Re: Discuss Every Beach Boys Song Day By Day on: April 05, 2018, 09:59:48 AM
Today's song is Everybody Wants to Live.

Carl sounds like he's not into it. His vocals seem slurred too, and it sounds like he's stuttering at one point "y-y-your gonna have to prove it to me" (about 1 minute 20 seconds into the song). The lyric about the cigarette is somewhat amusing. The chorus isn't too bad I suppose, best part of the song. Not their greatest. TWO.
15  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: That Beach Boys song going through your head on: April 04, 2018, 07:59:23 AM
Little Honda. Mostly I have the punky sounding fuzz-tone going through my head. Love that sound.
16  Smiley Smile Stuff / Polls / Re: Discuss Every Beach Boys Song Day By Day on: April 03, 2018, 07:04:35 AM
Today's song is It's Over Now.

A very beautiful and melancholy ballad with great horn and string arrangements by Dick Reynolds. When I first heard this track (from the 30 years of good vibrations box) I thought Carl sounded a little drunk but apparently it was due to a tape-speed fault (it's still very effective that way). It sounds corrected on MIC. Either way, big FIVE!
17  Smiley Smile Stuff / Polls / Re: Discuss Every Beach Boys Song Day By Day on: April 02, 2018, 11:43:26 AM
Today's song is H.E.L.P is on the Way.

A goofy but enjoyable tune. Not one of my favorites but I like putting it on occasionally. Three.
18  Smiley Smile Stuff / Polls / Re: Discuss Every Beach Boys Song Day By Day on: March 30, 2018, 01:41:36 PM
Today's song is Life is for the Living.

It's a fun song, cracks me up!  LOL Sounds like the end of a show, with the credits rolling. FOUR

Today's song is You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'

This one's a "meh".
TWO

Today's song is Sherry She Needs Me.

I'm giving Sherry 5 stars. Years ago I got a bootleg LP called The New Album which had Sherry on it. Although the quality was rough I loved it and found it to be a fascinating track. I preferred it over the slick and polished She Says That She Needs Me from Imagination (although I like that one, too...just not as much). When Made In California came out the first track I listened to (over and over) was Sherry. "Sherry don't hate her guts..." always cracks me up  LOL Wonderful stuff. Would've been great on the Love You album, which by the way was a jolly good time discussing these past 2 weeks. Let's do it again sometime   3D
22  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Still Cruisin CD on: March 28, 2018, 01:27:39 PM
We still have an FYE in Attleboro MA. I never shop there though. Such minimal variety and way more focused on silly pop culture items rather than music. Bleh.
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / Polls / Re: Discuss Every Beach Boys Song Day By Day on: March 27, 2018, 09:08:27 AM
Today we discuss the album Love You as a whole.

I know lots of fans dislike it for different reasons such as Brian's rough voice, the bizarre songs and their subject matter, the production and synthy instruments and whatever else... I cherish this album for those reasons. I'll Bet He's Nice and The Night Was So Young are my two favorite moments on the album, and I love how rockin' Side One is. Pretty much the only thing I never cared for from this album is Ding Dang. Years ago I didn't care for LPOHT and IWPYU but those songs have since grown on me.  I find it to be a fascinating album. Almost a 5, but I gave it 4.
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys Songs at Manson Funeral on: March 26, 2018, 01:53:37 PM
"guests gathered to watch the cremation, then went outside to sing songs by Manson, the Beach Boys and Guns N’ Roses"

Ok so they sang Cease To Exist/Never Learn Not To Love and Look At Your Game Girl I'm assuming. Nobody was singing 409 or Sweet Child O' Mine  LOL Some people not in the know would get the wrong impression.
25  Smiley Smile Stuff / Polls / Re: Discuss Every Beach Boys Song Day By Day on: March 26, 2018, 01:43:56 PM
Today's song is Love Is A Woman.

Brian's vocals are rough but I think it enhances the song. I dig Al's vocals on the counting bridge. Mike sounds smooth. It's a great closing number. FIVE
