I like the idea somebody here had about the group doing a song about Dennis or Carl

We once had a doggie named Carl
Who went with our pigtails and freckles.
Just like a tisket and a tasket
He came one Christmas in a basket

He'd jump on her lap and would kiss us
When we'd go away he would miss us
He used to tag along beside us
A furry flop haired easy rider

Carl, I'll see you on the other side
I couldn't believe it when they said you'd died
I couldn't keep myself from crying
I even almost felt like dying

Carl, I know I'll get to see you again
I don't know exactly where or how or when
Such a good dog, I'm believing
You're happy up in doggy heaven

Carl, though you're gone away
I feel sure that we will play some day
Just like in the good ole days
Just you and me (togetherrrrrr)

I guess it could be like that.  I was thinking more along the vein of "My Diane".  They could call it "My Dennis". 


Just kidding, and I know it would be a tall order, but they could write an appropriately oblique song about Carl and Dennis and have it be the coolest thing ever.

Consider:  Brian's unheard-of return to vocal form in his 60's since the release of Smile, the amazing production of the Disney record (some of his best work since 1967, IMHO), the crap-eating grin on his face in the recent FB Capitol records photos, the Smile Sessions being released in a few weeks , and the fact that he holds the ultimate hand in any BB reunion-- I'm certain he could negotiate full authority in every realm in the project, and even have Darian with him every time he's in a room with Mike (a sort-of reverse Surf-Nazi kind of deal...), or he'd be glad to walk away and return to living-legend land.

There's only one title for this puppy:

The Beach Boys -- Return of the Piper (2011)

That sounds more like a Syd Barrett comeback album.

Dedicated to Dennis and Carl, and anyone else in the band who ever dies:

Hey, little Beach Boy, sit here on my lap
I got things that I gotta tell you
No more skateboards, put away your baseball mitt.
Your rough livin' days are through

You could find places to go
You could see that boys love you so
They're doin' it all over the world

Hey little hey little hey little Beach Boy
Time to turn into a girl
Hey little hey little hey little Beach boy
They're doin' it all over the world

Hey, little Beach boy, I've had my eyes on you
Thinkin' what a girl you could be
Mmm, I smell perfume, let's try some cut-off jeans
Look at all the changes I see

I'm gonna teach you to kiss
You're gonna feel just like this
They're doin' it all over the world

Hey little hey little hey little Beach Boy
Time to turn into a girl
Hey little hey little hey little Beach Boy
They're doin' it all over the world

(Hey little hey little hey little Beach Boy)
I'm gonna make you a girl
(Hey little hey little hey little Beach Boy)
You'd make a beautiful girl
(Hey little hey little hey little Beach Boy)
They're doing it all over the world

"pleasure island" would work if Brian uses the beach boys to complete his rock and roll album he has been talking about since 1999....  Grin

Pleasure Island is miles better than Ocean Way. And its a name that would intrigue today's audience more as well.


Which place would you choose to go?
Mike would like pleasure island because it fits in with in his summer beach boys kokomo theme he has been pushing since the 1980s. Saw Mike and Bruce this year and they were great and they will sound good in the studio for an album.

The thing with Mike is that , love him or hate him, everyone must agree that he has lived an amazing life, experienced the highest of highs and the lowest of lows, so surely he can think of more intresting subject matter to sing about then going to the bloody beach!!

Mike can write good non-beach lyrics, the man wrote the lyrics for side two of Today and warmth of the sun. Cool Guy

Mike's "I don't wanna know" (re-recorded for his unreleased Mike Love Not War album) is great. I love it ! I wonder what it would've sounded like if Carl had sang it.

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

The problem with Mike in my opinion is that while he may do non-beach songs on his solo albums, when he makes Beach Boys albums he has this idea of surfing/cars and beach themed music because that thats the part of the band's legacy he embraces, while Brian is more into the emotional side of the band's legacy. Hoping they reach a consensus for a new album that embraces both aspects of the beach boys music and legacy.

Solo albums are one thing but for Beach Boys material I'm afraid it'll be "fun in the sun" lyrics all the way.

Hate to be a downer but again......The source is someone tweeting while taking a sh!t!

This person may not know the Beach Boys from the Beastie Boys. In to record comes Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys and it 'is ' the Beach Boys suddenly.

To the insider who got upset about a subject earlier, now may be a good time to speak up.

am i missing what the bathroom has to do with anything?  are you trying to say that cause he tweeted a picture of what the bathroom looks like at the studio (obviously showing the posters on the wall) that he has no credibility?  i mean he said he's listenign to the music with brian wilson and then posted a picture of him and brian wilson. 

I just think it is disrespectful of someone who should be a professiona,l to me at least, be sending a tweet hidden and in secret. Also interesting no pictures other than with Brian. Not a word on the songs, style, musicians etc.

Like to be proved wrong but by now I would have thought a 'Beach Boy' or spokesman would have confirmed or denied.

Call me nuts, but I would love to hear a BB version of Love and Mercy.

Hey... so would I.

If the really make a new album, and it's half as good as TLOS, then it's good enough. Still I'm scared thinking they really might try.

The worst of times? You jest imo. A bit of the real, unfiltered Brian (that's not to say his recent output is somehow not real) can not be a bad thing, if that's what you were going for.

Back to topic, I think what the Beach Boys first need is a real good single. We know it'll turn out to be the Do It Again remake, but that would be sooooo wrong. Nobody wants to hear a re-recording, especially not one of a song that was already a hit. The next best of - which will certainly be released next year or 2013 - would then have two versions of Do It Again. Wrong, wrong, wrong. They need a new song/a new recording of an unreleased song. Something really catchy and nice. There are quite a few unreleased songs that have hit potential and maybe they'll even come up with a new one. To get a hit should be no problem with the right promotion and thanks to the 50th, the reunion and the likely succes of The Smile Sessions, it won't be too hard for the managment to build something around that. Put the Do It Again re-recording on the single as "b-side" or as a bonus track and it'll be allright. "Good kind of love" from Brian's TLOS album was something that had good potential. Same with Soul Searchin and Desert Drive (although these have already been used by Brian solo). I mentioned Brian's unreleased "Do you have any regrets" (a.k.a. I Do) and "I sleep alone". Don't know about the latter, but DYHAR could very well become a hit. The boys and their managemnt just have to do something right for once. TSS is a very good start.

i wonder how often brian rejects ideas that are brought to him. i really have a tough time believing that stuff like lucky old sun or gershwin is 100% his arranging. it feels like he brings something bare to the sessions, and then his band kinda fills in the gaps and overproduces it. to me, there's something that sounds very off and artificial about gershwin/disney/etc.

I believe "Message Man," "I'm Into Something Good," "Oh Mi Amor" and "Just Like Me and You" are more indicative of what Brian Wilson solo productions sound like in the 2000's.  Like them or not, I don't know if that sound has hit potential in 2011 (not necessarily a bad thing, in my mind).
