Needs a few Chuck Berry covers ... (It's not a real Beach Boys album without some Chuck Berry).

I'm thinking Mike doing 'My Ding-a-Ling'.

Seriously, It's an audience participation number: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0gWMJLUbk10

MOOG SYNTH

that is all

Edit: Also include Don't Fight The Sea, Wouldn't It Be Nice Too Live Again (I know they don't sound like that now but lets just get it out there) and re-record new versions of California Feelin', Midnight's Another Day and Southern California. Also bring back Brian's 80's Getcha Back falsetto for a song or two in the studio. (If he can still do it.)

1. More cowbell

2. More pirate rapping, because why not?

3. A track similar to Bull Session with Big Daddy

Perhaps the Executive Producer of the next album could be a committee of concerned Smiley Boarders... geez, if only we'd been around 50 years ago, THIS BAND NEED NEVER HAVE MADE A MISTAKE!

True that.

OldSurferDude would have kicked Myke Luhv out immediately, Ghost would have turned Brian onto acid at the recording session for Surfin', and the rest of us would be in an all-out fist fight in the parking lot outside Western (started over the recommended use of Moog Synthesizers on Pet Sounds).

Though, more seriously, I think this thread was made for kicks....and responded to by people who are bored out of their skulls at their work/home/library/space-station. I hope to God Brian doesn't actually take notes from this thread Grin

One simple demand: That it be AT LEAST as good as That's Why God Made The Radio. Otherwise, what's the point? If they're not sure that they can meet that demand, they should  just stick to solo projects or, better yet, retire on a high note.

Brian's got himself in a box here. 
We know he wants to do a 'Phil Spector' rock n roll record, and yet if he actually does and records it with his own band there'll be blowback from those who say "why didn't you record it with the Beach Boys?"

So if he's got some rockin' numbers in his jumpers, then have 'em grace the next Beach Boy album. Maybe one or two slow ones MAX...the rest just rockin'. And cookin'. In the kitchen of Love.

Or they will be so cosmically out there that people say "It's a good thing he didn't record those songs with The beach Boys"

I think these days Brian's notion of a rockin' number is more along the lines of Soul Searchin' than Soul Man. Besides, there's no law that says the other Beach Boys can't sing on a Brian solo album where needed.

NO rerecording old songs, NO releasing songs that have already been released on Al's solo album. what's wrong with you people? for every new "California Feelin'" we lose a song we've never heard and will never hear.

If Brian can't come up with something to rival "Summer's Gone" as the album closer (and I have a feeling he shouldn't even attempt to), then re-record "Southern California" from "TLOS" with Beach Boys vocals.

Hear, hear. That song would be an awesome ending on a BB album.

Also,... as others have mentioned they should record at least one full-out fast rocker. That's Why God Made the Radio would definately have benefitted from at least one fast song to balance things.

AND..... why not a Bruce lead? Or at least some vocal tid bits on a few tracks. I wish he'd be more audible on the new album.

True. For instance, I'd love to hear the Beach Boys on Message Man and I'm Into Something Good.

What if due to the success of That's Why God Made The Radio they were forced to put out a new album for October?

Maybe they could pad it out with a couple of Surf Instrumentals called Surf Dawg, Beach Trippin' or Big Woodie.

They could have a spoken word track called Bryon Wilsin and Myke Luhv Discuss World Peace (and How To Speak Hip).

Give Al a song about visiting the dentist and brushing your teeth.

Have Mike write about having fun fun fun spreading his good vibes doing it again all summer long passing by having a good time adding some music to his day in the parkin' lot.

Let Mike write about meditating with the Maharishi.

Let Brian write a song about his dogs.

Let Brian write a song about Norbit.

Get The artist who drew the cover for the 1975 Spirit Of America comp to do the album artwork.

Make the album 22 minutes long.

Only release it on Vinyl.

Instead of being nostalgic, how about more modern lyrical content.
Songs about ipods, itunes, FB, Twitter etc
Even mention email and faxes, 5o years of change! Maybe reference the latest bands and solo artist to bring them up to a more modern audience!
A song about planking, reflect today's society, multi-culturism, winning the war on terror etc
No one picks up Good Vibrations anymore! Nor do they have fun!! Or Get around!!!

Dear Beach Boys, don't do any of this.  Thanks.

1) More Al Jardine vocals.
2) At least one song with David Marks lead vocals.
3) Songwriting collaborations by Brian Wilson and Al Jardine.
4) Songwriting collaborations by Brian Wilson and David Marks.
5) Less Joe Thomas.  Maybe bring in Stephen Desper to record?
6) No songs written by Mike Love without Brian Wilson's help.
7) A double CD.  Don't drop any songs.  There's lots of unrecorded Brian Wilson songs for the Boys to record.  And he certainly will come up with new ones between now and then.   Blow my mind with a double CD of new songs.  I dare you.
Totally agree with 1, 2 (coz I never heard his voice; it'd be interesting to compare his voice with others'), 3 (!!!), 7(!!!) + self-composed song(s) by Al Jardine, the same about Bruce Johnston, song with Matt Jardine l/vocs.

I'd really like if they "warmed up" for this next album by laying new vocal tracks on some of Brian's recent best solo stuff. I've always dreamt of hearing Al on Morning Beat and Bruce tackling The Like in I Love You at schmaltzyness level 11. The idea of having everyone tackle a verse of Southern California is also a very cool idea. I wonder if they could get Mike to sing Live Let Live  LOL

It'd take, what, a couple of days to record? They'd make perfect bonus tracks imo.
