1. This Whole World - Wonderful...my #1 favorite 1970s BBs song. Just perfect.
2. Forever - My 2nd favorite Dennis tune, and man it's soo lovely. Really amazing vocals all around.
3. Our Sweet Love - Sweetness, thy name is Carl Wilson. I adore this one.
4. Slip On Through - Just a tremendous opener, really kick ass and fantastic.
5. Add Some Music To Your Day - Delightful, real musical warmth. Love it.
6. Cool, Cool Water - Wow factor up to 11. Simply grand.
7. All I Wanna Do - Really beautiful. Nice, Mike, nice.
8. Deirdre - My favorite Bruce BBs song. Lovely and bright.
9. It's About Time - Rockin'. Dig it...a lot. Like I always say (and I'm always right), Carl rules!
10. Got To Know The Woman - Ah, damn great, very funny, brings a dumb grin to your face. Gotta love Denny.
11. At My Window - Really been growing on me lately. Now I think it's quite good. NICE ending bit with Brian soaring above all.
12. Tears In The Morning - Something has to be last, but I still really like this song, still very good.

Wow. The single greatest album the Beach Boys ever made as a band, together, singin' and writin' and producin' on a more equal basis. Pet Sounds is by many miles greater, of course, but that's Brian's baby. This is the band's and they should be proud.

1. All I Wanna Do (one of my favorite BB tunes... haunting, gorgeous, hypnotic, incredible...)
2. This Whole World
3. Slip On Through (just a happenin' track... love Brian's falsetto yeeeeeeahs)
4. Deirdre
5. Add Some Music To Your Day
6. Cool Cool Water
7. Forever
8. At My Window (pretty cute, like this little ditty)
9. Our Sweet Love (boring rewrite of God Only Knows... idk, just boring)
10. It's About Time (bland 70s music... not a fan of this)
11. Got To Know The Woman (dated 70s crap... nothing of interest here)
12. Tears In the Morning (some of the worst lyrics ever, and a very repetitive melody, just plain awful)

From Worst to Best:
12: At My Window. Total crap. The only truly horrible song from this great album. Avoid if you can!
11: Cool, Cool Water. Totally out of place from this album. If history went the right way, this would have been on Smile instead.
10: Our Sweet Love. Talk about sappy. I actually think this is worse than the Bruce tracks in the sappiness.
9: Tears In The Morning. Not half as bad as most people say. That being said it's not that good.
8: This Whole World. A bit overrated, don't care for it too much. Really don't care for the backing vocals.
7: Got To Know The Woman. The weakest Dennis track here, but still a nice rockin' track. Doesn't deserve a lot of criticism, except for the female "Got To Know The Womannnnnn" parts in between verses. It's virtually unlistenable and cringe-worthy, and it really brings this song down for me. But I liked the Chicken part, and overall, this song is great proof that Dennis was easily the coolest Beach Boy of all-time!
6: Deirdre. The better of the two Bruce songs. Enjoyable, but people really have to stop hating on Bruce.
5: All I Wanna Do. Not as good as the similarity titled All I Want To Do. It's a bit out there for me, but still great.
4: Add Some Music To Your Day. This song has quite grown on me, although it's not a favourite.
3: Forever. What can I say about this that hasn't already been said? Yet another all-time classic. Dennis's God Only Knows!
2: Slip On Through. Underrated single that should have been a much bigger single. Absolutely love it!
1: It's About Time. Seriously, you can't not like this song! This should appear on more compilations.

1. This Whole World - 494.5 (19)
2. All I Wanna Do - 424 (Cool
3. Forever - 399 (4)
4. Add Some Music to Your Day - 374 (3)
5. Slip On Through - 364 (1)
6. Cool, Cool Water - 345 (3)
7. Our Sweet Love - 306
8. It's About Time - 269.5 (5)
9. Deirdre - 257.5 (2)
10. At My Window - 241 (2)
11. Got to Know the Woman - 138.5 (1)
12. Tears in the Morning - 129

My thoughts?  Very happy to see the underacknowledged All I Wanna Do place second.  I think both Add Some Music and Our Sweet Love are a little high, with the songs surrounding them deserving a bump up.

Might as well rank the tracks of my favorite BB album

12. Got to Know the Woman - Not a bad song.  Actually a fun song.  But on this album...

11.  Deidre - Again, not a bad song, but just too much competition

10.  At My Window - A companion piece to Little Bird.  Nice little number

9.   Tears in the Morning - It might seem like I'm picking on Bruce a little here, but I do like this song.  My one criticism of Sunflower is that there are too many Bruce leads, not enough Brian or Al. 

8.  Slip On Through - Dennis opens up the album in decent form.  Although I think Think Whole World would've been a better opener.

7.  Cool Cool Water - Neat vocals.  This is another one of those Beach Boys songs it took me a few year to 'get'

6.  Our Sweet Love - Beautifully sung by Carl.  GOK for the 1970s

5.  It's About Time - Proves The Beach Boys could still rock when they wanted to .

4.  Forever - One of many great Dennis ballads, and Dennis's best contribution to Sunflower

3.  Add Some Music - Love the group trading off vocals.   

2.  This Whole World - Classic Beach Boys.  Great vocal from Carl and great harmonies. 

1.  All I Wanna Do - Maybe the last great Love / Wilson composition.  A beautiful ballad, and IMO Mike Love's greatest lead vocal.

1. All I Wanna Do--- My all time favorite BBs song. So beautiful, psychedelic, and intimate.
2. Deirdre--- Many people disagree, but I think this song is a masterpiece.
3. Forever--- What a haunting song. So beautiful.
4. This Whole World--- Great chord progression and harmonies. I also love the guitars. I just wish it was a bit longer.
5. It's About Time--- Denny and Al really wrote a rocking song! This might be the best BBs rock song.
6. Our Sweet Love--- Great vocals by Carl. If it weren't for the vocals, I wouldn't be crazy about the song, but Carl's vocals are sooooooo good.
7 Slip On Through--- Another great rock number, with a great arrangement.
8. Tears In The Morning--- A lot of people don't like this song, but I love it.
9. Cool, Cool Water--- Very psychedelic and great harmonies.
10. Add Some Music--- Fun song, good vocals, but overall- just ok.
11. At My Window--- A lot of people LOVE this song, but I think it's just okay. Bruce's vocals were awesome though.
12. Got To Know The Woman--- I like this song, it just isn't as good as the others.

EVERY SONG ON THIS ALBUM IS BRILLIANT. IT'S MY PERSONAL FAVORITE BEACH BOYS RECORD.

Practically impossible for me to rank from worst to best, so I'm ranking them from my least preferred to my most preferred.

12. Got to Know the Woman
11. Tears in the Morning
10. It's About Time (This should have been a hit!)
9. Deirdre
8. Slip on Through
7. Forever
6. This Whole World
5. Our Sweet Love
4. Cool Cool Water
3. Add Some Music to Your Day
2. At My Window (The low reception for this song by this board is so unbelievable to me! The coda is honestly one of the greatest things I've ever heard.)
1. All I Wanna Do (so so so beautiful)

3. Slip On Through
4. At My Window

6. Got To Know the Woman
7. Forever
8. It's About Time
9. Our Sweet Love
10. Deirdre
11. Add Some Music To Your Day
12. Tears In the Morning

But really, can't I rank them all tied for first?

This is still pretty close to what I'd say. Maybe I'd be kinder to "Tears in the Morning," but I'm not sure what else I'd say. Swap the bottom two, maybe.

I gave Tears in the Morning the last spot, but I really do love that song. My husband makes fun of it. I think that's why I stuck it at the bottom, lol.
