Tom Petty "Feel a whole lot better":

Didn't listen to other covers hence posting it here. What's sure is the Byrds did it waaay worse. Not their fan.

The First Discussion
Theme: Introduction
Main Question: What is 'The Beach Boys Love You' for you?

Love You has been my second favorite Beach Boys album. I listen to it once a week, but I wouldn't feel embarrassed if I had to listen to it once a day.

Each side of the album gives me different feelings. Side 1 makes me excited and cheerful. Side 2 makes me moved and calm.

My first listen to the album was last April. I had already heard the greatness of the album at that time, and I give it a try by streaming. It didn't need the second listen for Love You to be my favorite. I got its physical release last September, and then, my love for the album growing more and more. Now Love You seems like a friend to me.
Conclusion: Watamushi loves you, The Beach Boys Love You.

Now, what is The Beach Boys Love You for you? When did you listen to it for the first time? Looking forward to hearing your stories.

Additional Question for those who are already around when Love You came out: what was your first reaction? What was it like? I'm curious about that, too.

.... Sorry to make almost the same comments on PSF...

It has been about 40 years since The Beach Boys Love You, the fruit of Brian's Back campaign first came out in April, 1977. The album has got a lot of either praise and criticism, but is generally recognized as the best things the Beach Boys did in later 70's.

Now, I think it's time to talk over this album. On this thread, we'll have 24 separate discussions, and try to understand more about what The Beach Boys Love You is. I hope you'll enjoy them.

Here's the plan of the discussions:

1. Introduction  Main Question: What is 'Love You' for you?
2. All Things 'Let Us Go On This Way'  Main Question: Is it the best choice for the opener?
3. All Things 'Roller Skating Child'   Main Question: Did they choose roller skating as the song's them as they chose surfing in 60's?
4. All Things 'Mona'   Main Question: How does the repetition of the same melody work for the song?
5. All Things 'Johnny Carson ' Main Question: Do you find the lyrics silly, or find it interesting?
6. All Things 'Good Time'  Main Question: Was this the best cut for the album off Sunflower era outtakes?
7. All Things 'Honkin' Down the Highway'  Main Question: Was it a wise decision to change Billy's lead vocal into Al's one?
8. All Things 'Ding Dang'   Main Question: Was this jam waste of talents of both Brian and Roger?
9. All Things 'Solar System  Main Question: Would this song, or any on the album, have worked better as instrumentals?
10. All Things 'The Night was So Young '   Main Question: Why did Brian write a song about love affair with someone who's not his wife?
11. All Things  'I'll Bet He's Nice'  Main Question: How do you guess how Brian feel about Marilyn when he wrote it?
12. All Things 'Let's Put Our Hearts Together'  Main Question:  Was it a good idea to occasionally include Marilyn on the group's song and how do people feel about Brian's work with her over the years?
13. All Things 'I Wanna Pick You Up'  Main Question:  Are the lyrics here shows Brian's parentship or love for his children?
14. All Things 'Airplane'  Main Question:  Who do you guess Brian wrote this song for?
15. All Things 'Love is a Woman  Main Question:  Is this embarrassing closer for the album as many people say?
16. Vocals  Main Question: Are the vocals here as good as their vocals before?
17. Production  Main Question: Do you think Brian did his best at that time for the album?
18. Other Members' Contribution Main Question: How other members contribute for the album?
19. Lyrics  Main Question: Do you find the lyrics here childish?
20. Influence on the Album Main Question: Are there anything that influenced this album?
21. Influence of the Album  Main Question: Are there any musicians/albums/songs that were influenced by the album?
22. Reception  Main Question: Is the appreciation given to this album fair?
23. Album's Location in the History of Music  Main Question:  Was 1977 the right time for this album?
24. Conclusion  Main Question:  Was 'Love You' the last greatest album from the Beach Boys?

The rules of the discussions:
1. Each discussion should be on its theme, but don't have to be on its main question. Main question is just a tool to make the discussion easier to do.

2. Each discussion will be held for three days.

3. All the discussions will be taken place on this thread, so please make sure to check the theme and main question at the time when you join the discussions.

4. I'll give you a wrap-up post at the end of each discussion.

Hi Watamushi and welcome! I always enjoy reading your enthusiastic threads and posts at PSF.

And your English is fine, believe me. Three years----I dread to think how long it would take me to learn Japanese! 
OK, I believe you. The Beach Boys have been really helping me to make my English much better.

Were they very strict about no signing? Almost unbelievable that you can't even get one thing signed for $500...

Thanks Bugs Cheesy

I have a question... I tried to make a poll thread on poll section, but I was not allowed to make it.

When will I be allowed to make poll threads?

Edit: I have two more questions for you:

1. Is it possible to change/edit the poll of the thread I made every day?

2. Is it possible to edit the title or first post of the thread I made forever?
