Outstanding piece.

"Such sublime music coming from such strange vessels."

And production aside, Iíd so much rather hear a 14 year old David Marks shred some guitar on Chug-a-lug than hear a 51 year old Mike Love sing about bangin some chick in a swimming pool.-rab2591

Very interesting article, I often like to read these kinds of one-song analyses. I agree with author about that 1964 video, I started to appreciate DWB mostly due to watching it. They look very innocent & friendly together, especially Brian. Also well said about him creating one of the most inventive drumlines in music.

That said, there is one mistake I noticed: Carl didn't handle the lead after Brian - it's Al who sang the song. But all in all, kudos to Mr. Zahl for this fascinating writing! And thanks to whoislikegod for bringing it up to this board!

Btw, the 1st photo of Brian in costume and hat is rather cool.
Actually, Carl did sing it for a while in the 80s and 90s I believe. I've never heard a recording of him doing the whole song before, but I saw a video of him and Jeff Foskett doing a bit of a duet.

I didn't notice this detail the first time that I read it but it looks like the author changed it.  It now says that Al took the lead.

The Brian-less Beach Boys live leads of DWB have had many different combinations through the years:

1969: Al and Bruce - verses, Al - chorus. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xDEpGhpeMoA @ 1:29

In Concert: Al - verses, Carl - chorus. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkeJ4OdwVM8

Belgium 1987: Carl - part of verses, Jeff - remainder of verses, chorus. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5I2164jnQk @ :38

Japan 1991: Adrian Baker all the way through  Tongue http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8C4o6OT2FNQ @ 2:48

1995 - Matt Jardine all the way through. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBNx2DuI3Vg

A bit off topic, but Bruce sounds great on "Please Let Me Wonder" and the Brian-falsetto on "I Get Around" in this clip.
