There may be duplicate songs from other albums, but the album taken as it is presented is one damn fine album. There is not one bad song in the whole bunch of them. I real favorite of mine over the years.

The Brianista Prayer

Oh Brian
Thou Art In Hawthorne,
Harmonied Be Thy name
Your Kingdom Come,
Your Steak Well Done,
On Stage As It Is In Studio,
Give Us This Day, Our Shortenin' Bread
And Forgive Us Our Bootlegs,
As We Also Have Forgiven Our Wife And Managers,
And Lead Us Not Into Kokomo,
But Deliver Us From Mike Love.
Amen.  ---hypehat

Not a weak song in the bunch.  I'd have to put Shut Down and 409 at the top, followed by Ballad of Old Betsy, Car Crazy Cutie, No Go Showboat and with Be True To Your School, even if it isn't the better single version. As a "child" if you will of the 60's hot rod era, those songs are simply timeless to me. I love Mike's singing on Shut down and particularly 409.

1. Little Deuce Coupe - Same as what I said on Surfer Girl tracks. Classic.
2. Shut Down - Ditto with what I said on Surfin' USA tracks. Awesome.
3. Car Crazy Cutie - Love it! I think it might be better than 'Pamela Jean'; I think the lyrics fit the melody better.
4. Spirit of America - Sweet.
5. 409 - As I said with the tracks on Surfin' Safari, it's a keeper.
6. Ballad of Ole Betsy - Uh, pretty! Like it a bunch.
7. Cherry, Cherry Coupe - Really quite underrated, I feel.
8. Custom Machine - "Step on the gas, she goes waaaaaaah" is just plain bitchin'.
9. No-Go Showboat - Very cool song.
10. Our Car Club - Again with what I said on Surfer Girl tracks, it's nice and has a great track.
11. A Young Man Is Gone - I like it quite a bit, actually.
12. Be True To Your School - WAY prefer the single version and it always stuck out a little on this album as it's not as much about cars specifically as the others are. Still good anyway.

I dunno, it's a pretty solid album. There are some lesser-loved gems on here, and I dig it.

1. Little Deuce Coupe - 180 (3)
2. Shut Down - 175 (3)
3. Ballad of Ole' Betsy - 166 (5)
4. Cherry, Cherry Coupe - 161 (1)
5. No-Go Showboat - 160 (4)
6. Custom Machine - 150 (1)
7. Spirit of America - 145 (1)
8. Our Car Club - 144 (1)
9. Be True to Your School - 140 (1)
10. Car Crazy Cutie - 135
11. 409 - 100 (2)
12. A Young Man Is Gone - 60

My thoughts?  Easily the most uncertain of the lists so far.  The top songs in first place votes got the 3rd and 5th positions, respectively, and there's only a 40 point spread between the top nine tracks.  The title track is a reasonable victor, but there never seemed to be much consensus on the lists.  I'm still a bit puzzled at how high Shut Down made it, even with the new songs having a more polished vocal blend.

From Worst to Best:
12. A Young Man Is Gone.
11. Little Deuce Coupe.
10. Our Car Club.
09. Cherry Cherry Coupe.
08. Custom Machine.
07. Shut Down.
06. 409.
05. Be True To Your School.
04. Spirit Of America.
03. No-Go Showboat.
02. Car Crazy Cutie.

P.S. All tracks from 12 to 6 just sucks. It only starts to get good from 5 onwards.

12. A Young Man is Gone (When a song rhymes "cause" with "cause", you know you're in for something.)
11. 409
10. Be True to Your School (I actually prefer the album version to the single version. I like the "Wall of Sound" production to this one!)
9. Cherry Cherry Coupe
8. Shut Down
7. Spirit of America
6. Little Deuce Coupe
5. Custom Machine
4. No Go Showboat
3. Ballad of Ole' Betsy
2. Our Car Club (What a cool-sounding song, I'm shocked it isn't that popular among most other users here!)
1. Car Crazy Cutie (Holy hell, talk about underrated! By far one of my all-time favorite early Beach Boys tracks.)

1. Spirit of America -sublime. THAT voice of Brian.
2. Ballad of Ole' Betsy -sublime, a highlight as well
3. Little Deuce Coupe
4. A Young My Is Gone -I always liked it better than any rendition of 'Their Hearts Were Full of Spring'. Very touching.

5. Custom Machine
6. No-Go Showboat
7. Car Crazy Cutie -Three pure fun tracks, you know.

8. Shut Down
9. Our Car Club
10. 409
11. Be True To Your School -single version is far better
12. Cherry, Cherry Coupe -don't know why it's often praised as if it's a hidden masterpiece. Lame.
