I really wonder about the Sail on Sailor choreography.  Is Brian laughing at the song or is this his honest-to-goodness shot at a good performance? Is the band laughing with him or at him (not in a vicious way, but in a "oh that goofy guy" kind of way).

Anything Brian Wilson does is endearing to those around him.

So why was no video wall in Singapore ? I'm confused ?
Anyway, very nice version of GOK by Brian. Thanks for the links !

From Mike's Australian interview, I gathered that the video wall is only being used when the venue has the equipment. They didn't bring it with them, but if the venue has one, they use it.

Can you direct me to this Australian interview? I have not come across mention of it until now.

 And then he sings the next line as "sometimes I feel velly sad", doing an accent and you see a glimpse of a SMiLE on his face. So fantastic.

I noticed this too.

I thought he was saying "very" in a stereotypical way to poke fun of the Asians. "Sometimes I feel varry sad". He probably wasn't doing that, but if he was that's pretty damn funny (if politically incorrect).

He's definitely having some fun up there. Good for him.



Had Mike attempted something like that, we would be backslashing the guy.
Had Bruce attempted something like that, we would have a new hate thread.

I dig that Brian did it, though. And, I say it again, TWW is some of te best live vocals from him I've heard. This tour so far has been his best with the BBs since -- what? 1965?

Oh, come on guys, Brian wasn't making fun of Asians. he just has a funny singing voice.

I kinda think he was. Maybe an inside joke. You did see that sly smile on his face as he was singing it like that, didn't you? That's one of those looks that you make when you're getting away with something.  Cheesy

I doubt he was, although I concur that it's possible.  If he really was, though, he picked the wrong country:  Singapore is technically an English-speaking country, although it's multilingual and their variety of English can be quite different from American or British.  The most common native language these days there is probably Mandarin Chinese, which unlike Japanese and Korean distinguishes between "l" and "r," although their R sounds are quite different from those in English (but sound nothing like "l").

I don't know, but one possibillity is that the movements help to sing the notes... in better pitch. Jeff supports Brian vocally, and now and then others join in.

I could see the movements helping him hit the notes.  But as for vocal support, when he was doing that at the Nagoya show, there didn't seem to be anyone supporting him vocally on SOS--in fact, Jeff was watching him and making the movements back at him, so his back was turned to the mic.

Thanks. He sounds pretty tired, but it's not a bad listen.

This is probably the first known live recording of the actual single version of "Isn't It Time":

http://youtu.be/r_XGVJmXEWM

Note the different (Al's) and the different bridge.
Also note that is different both from the album version AND the live version they use to play towards the end of the US tour.

It's a stronger arrangement than the album's. Really wish it hits big.

Oops, nevermind.

What does John Cowsill's shirt say? Looks like a take off of the Pet Sounds font.

I'm not feeling the new lyrics. Even more generic than before! And...say what you will, but I miss Jeff on the bridge.

Wow this version of "God Only Knows" is impeccable.  Strong vocals by Brian...and he sticks every high note.  The "what good would living do meeeeeee" is dead on.
