Man I just listened to I Do for the first time in years. What an amazing song. Especially with the churchbell sounds. I can't recall the name of that instrument, but it's such an emotive instrument. I feel like there's some really popular Coldplay song that has those church-chimes in it and it's probably at least 40% of the reason that song's popular.

but anyway,

I don't really dislike any of them. Far from their best, but in the context of a debut, there is a freshness to all the songs. A nice garage rock sound. I tend to not rank covers as high. So here goes.

1. Surfin Safari
2. Chug a Lug
3. Coo Coo Clock
4. 409
5. Moon Dawg
6. The Shift
7. Heads You Win Tails I Lose
8. Little Girl
9. County Fair
10. Surfin
11. Ten Little Indians
12. Summer Time Blues

Probably the album most ignored by me, next to "Party," and I'm regretting how little I've listened to it! It's a really cool, loose album.

1. Surfin' Safari - Classic. Helluva way to kick off their Capitol era. A natural progression from 'Surfin'', and way better.
2. 409 - First car song, early Wilson/Usher gem and just plain cool.
3. Chug-a-Lug - "Brian's still glued to the radio..." I dig this song, for some reason.
4. Surfin' - Sped up? Eh. But still good.
5. County Fair - Liking this more all the time.
6. Little Girl (You're My Miss America) - Rather underrated. Nice Denny vocal.
7. The Shift - Dumb but sorta nice.
8. Cuckoo Clock - Uh...well, it's alright.
9. Heads You Win, Tails I Lose - Hmm...it's okay.
10. Ten Little Indians - Doesn't work quite so well today. If it ever did...
11. Moon Dawg - Kinda filler, but hey...
12. Summertime Blues - Not bad, but pretty clunky.

Nice garage rock start. I like coming back to it every now and then.

I've been working on tallying up the lists for these threads.  It's interesting to see where the songs end up with a notable sample size.

1. Surfin' Safari - 297 (18)
2. 409 - 245
3. Surfin' - 217
4. County Fair - 207 (3)
5. Little Girl (You're Miss America) - 193 (2)
6. Chug-A-Lug - 173 (1)
7. Cuckoo Clock - 169 (1)
8. Heads You Win - Tails I Lose - 149 (1)
9. Moon Dawg - 141
10. The Shift - 122
11. Summertime Blues - 104
12. Ten Little Indians - 90 (1)

My thoughts? Cuckoo Clock and Moon Dawg are a tad underrated here, while I still can't quite figure out the love for Surfin'.  Then again, pretty much all the songs here fall under that very early garage/surf rock sound.  The title track wins handily.

6-12 everything else. (Surfin' ranked low because this version is sped up and sounds like twice-baked ass)

Man...no love for Ten Little Indians?  WTF.

I thought the same thing! I'm actually shocked at how consistently it was voted worst or second to worst. I guess, I just hadn't noticed the dislike for the song elsewhere on the board. Wow. Anyway...


Here's my rankings based purely on personal taste (different from the ratings in my review of the album)


1. Surfin' Safari

2. Surfin'
3. Ten Little Indians
4. Little Girl (You're My Miss America)
5. Chug-A-Jug
6. County Fair

7. 409
8. The Shift
9. Cuckoo Clock

Meet another fan 3D I did rank the tracks with "Ten" being 1st. I like it because it's joyful. :D
