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

1. Somewhere Near Japan--- A BBs classic. It's a great song. Their best song of the 80's hands down.
2. In My Car--- A guilty pleasure. But even 30 years later, BW could still write great car songs!
3. Kokomo--- So bad it's good.
4. Island Girl--- Great vocals. Al really shines as a songwriter.
5. Still Cruisin--- Another cool car song, but Brian is missed.
6. Make It Big--- A cool rock song with great vocals.
7. Wipe Out--- I like some rap music, but this is dreadful.

1. Still Cruisin' (love the reverse echo on Mike's vocals in the intro. The chorus is by far the best part!)
2. Somewhere Near Japan
3. Kokomo (fun song, hate what it did to the band's image though)
4. Island Girl
5. In My Car
6. Make it Big
7. Wipe Out

1. Kokomo - One of Mike’s best works & leads, beautiful chorus by Carl, extremely catchy & fun, great sax solo.
2. Make It Big - Another catchy one, fun to listen to, great synths & sax, powerful Carl lead.
3. In My Car - Reminds me of Brian’s first solo album, great chorus, harmonies, & song in general.
4. Still Cruisin’ - Just a straight up fun song, nice Mike lead.
5. Island Girl - Nice Al composition, interesting Carl lead.
6. Somewhere Near Japan - Rough intro, doesn’t do much for me, Carl saves this to an extent.
7. Wipe Out - Deleted from iTunes library, unbearable, worst Beach Boys song.

 LOL

To me, it's a refreshing change of pace to see that the last few posts don't rank 'Somewhere Near Japan' so highly. It never did much for me. It doesn't sound like "The Beach Boys" IMO.

Here's my rankings...

1. Wouldn't It Be Nice
2. I Get Around
3. California Girls

4. Kokomo

5. Island Girl
6. In My Car
7. Still Cruisin'
8. Somewhere Near Japan

9. Make It Big
10. Wipe Out
