where is 'girl dont tell me'??

Haha. Whoops. Honestly, I don't like that one. Too much of a Beatles rip off. But I guess I should add that in! Thanks Gertie.

1. Let Him Run Wild - My 2nd favorite Beach Boys song. A stunning, ingenious production (LOVE that backing track), a great Brian vocal and amazing little transitions and chord progressions. Astonishing tune, a real masterpiece.
2. California Girls - Timeless and sublime, despite over-familiarity and the dated lyrics. The track is wonderful and the intro is unbelievable. Pure genius.
3. You're So Good To Me - Always loved this one. Great tune.
4. Summer Means New Love - NICE, quite underrated, one of the best BBs instrumentals. Brian's use of french horn always kills me (see also 'God Only Knows').
5. Help Me Rhonda - The superior version, more exciting and fun.
6. Girl Don't Tell Me - Awesome song, love it.
7. And Your Dream Comes True - Sweet n' short n' a capella. A lullaby to summer.
8. The Girl From New York City - Really terrific tune, kicks ass. Especially Brian's falsetto wails.
9. Salt Lake City - Nifty track, bright and vibrant. Turns a "meh" lyric into a great song.
10. Then I Kissed Her - Okay cover. Much prefer the Crystals' original. Nice though.
11. Amusement Parks USA - Good song. LOVE old school amusement parks, so this is right up my alley.
12. I'm Bugged At My Ol' Man - Funny vocal and pretty silly all around, but still it's totally filler.

One of my very favorite Beach Boys album, second only to Pet Sounds, Today and Sunflower I'd say. Just wonderful.

1. California Girls - 347 (12)
2. Help Me, Rhonda - 315 (6)
3. Let Him Run Wild - 298 (12)
4. You're So Good to Me - 246
5. Girl Don't Tell Me - 222 (1)
6. The Girl from New York City - 208
7. Summer Means New Love - 181
8. Then I Kissed Her - 173
9. Salt Lake City - 150
10. And Your Dreams Come True - 141
11. Amusement Parks U.S.A. - 128
12. I'm Bugged at My Ol' Man - 87 (1)

My thoughts?  I don't think I'm Bugged at My Ol' Man is the worst song on the album.  It is particularly interesting how California Girls and Let Him Run Wild share in first place votes, yet Help Me Rhonda slides between them (which is too high IMO).  I suppose Let Him Run Wild is a more polarizing song.

Another great album.

1. California Girls - great instrumentation
2. Let Him Run Wild - pre-ps Pure ps.
3. Help Me, Rhonda

4. You're So Good To Me
5. Girl from New York City - Brian's trippy backing vocal lift the song up
6. Salt Lake City
7. Then I Kissed Her - a bit better than the original
8. Girl Don't Tell Me
9. Amusement Parks, USA - always intrigued by the song concept, but the track itself is barely good.

10. Summer Means New Love
11. And Your Dreams Come True
