Gosh, how could I forget Carl's "come on!" The best ever use of that particular pairing of words. I mean, the way he shouts it, it's just so "come on"! He makes the listener believe every word, all two of them.

Right up there in my Beach Boys top 3 moments, along with "good" and "deep and wide".
I thought it sounded like Brian.

First time I played the album it was the only song other than Darlin' that grabbed me right away, everything else took some getting used to. It's gentle beauty, in my mind, cannot be disliked. It's just so uplifting!

Agree with the comment that Wake The World is in the same vein.

Yes, the "Come on" is right up there with "deep and wide".

Good observations!!

People link this tune with Let The Wind Blow… in my mind it also fits well with Wake the World. I guess it's the 'rise and shine' theme, which also occurs in Barnyard. They're all good fresh air songs.

For me it feels Similar to Love to Say Dada and Little Pad. I can't put my finger on it but I wouldn't  be surprised if it was originally composed alongside dada i.e. during the latter stages of smile/as it transitioned into smiley.

AGD does favour the Air element theory from
 what I can  remember  of his posts on the subject.


Country Air is one of my favourite bb songs. So effortlessly breezy and beautiful. Impossible to grow tired of.

Have any Country Air sessions ever been released or found?

Wasn't Surf's Up 1967 found at the end of the Country Air reels?

That's right. Still, I don't think anything's been booted.

Well there is that slightly sped-up stereo version out there with the opening organ and chatter. That's the one I go to.

'Country Air' is almost a joyful American gospel hymn, it would make lovely church music.

Elvis should've done a 'Negro Spiritual' version with choir on the '68 Comeback Special.

I love how emotionally detached the backing track feels.  It always felt to me like the vocals reflected humans praising nature and the backing track reflecting nature reacting in an unperturbed manner to the praise
One of my favourite songs.

Yes, the "Come on" is right up there with "deep and wide".

The first time I heard "Time To Get Alone", I thought they were singing "EATIN', WOW!!!!" I was absolutely sure that wasn't the actual line, but that was the closest thing to English words that I could come up with. I was basically without internet access for a couple months, thus I couldn't look it up at the time.

Thanks, now I'll never be able to hear it the same way again. Actually, I kind of wish those were the real lyrics, then everyone here would be praising Brian for his quirkiness.

I'll add "You're under arrest!", Mike's talk bits in "The Little Girl I Once Knew" & "Hey!" in "Good Time" as well.

Yeah, that Good Time "hey" is magnificent! And Carl's gruff opening "yeah" on Let Us Go On This Way is also worth mentioning.

Is it really "yeah"? I ask because to me it sounds like some sort of interjection. And btw, it is the only moment in the song that seems ear-attacking. Other than that,  Let Us Go On This Way's good cut. As is the rest of LY. Even The Night Was Young & Ding Dang.

To my ears, the rooster sounds like it's from a sound effects record...you can kinda hear the crackling of the vinyl, even on CD.
