"Goin' To The Beach"

I don't know, I kind of like it.  It's catchy and it's fun.  Sure it's corny, but not everything has to be high art.
Agreed.  While it's rather lightweight, disposable pop, to the amount that the song does succeed, it succeeds on the merits of it's hook.  Based upon the title alone, the subject matter couldn't possibly have come as a surprise to anyone, and in the sense that the number is everything it was ever meant to be, there's not a damn thing wrong with it (I don't recall ever hearing folks pining for the legendary, long-lost classic, "Goin' to the Beach").

That said, what really gets me is the amount of folks feigning surprise at the relative quality of the composition, as if they've never had any indication of how the song goes.  I mean, as much as I love the 'Boys, as an avowed Beatlefan, I'm nowhere near the level of BB fan as most here, and even I have heard the demo, backing track, and a fan mix of the two on youtube.  I don't know, I would think that almost anybody here at this site would already have sought out the available recordings long before now (especially after "Goin' to the Beach" was highlighted in the Made in California press release).

To be fair, I'd never heard the demo -- never even knew it existed -- though of course I've got the backing track. I don't think the demo has been that widely booted.

Mike & Bruce had a longer set than anyone else on the bill, and before they came on, everyone around me was complaining about that -- saying "It's an HOUR?! Why aren't JLS on yet? Who wants to see the Beach Boys?"

Yet when they got told "just one more song" by the backstage staff, they actually did two more -- Barbara Ann and Fun Fun Fun -- and they got called back for an encore by the entire crowd ROARING "MORE! MORE!".

And when they came back for that encore, they did a song that was in the set just for us hardcore fans.

They won that crowd round, in a way I've never seen anyone do before. It was an ASTONISHING show, and anyone who wasn't there nit-picking it should just grow up.

Well said, Andrew.

I'd also like to add:  at a *festival gig*, the Beach Boys also played their newest single, and an unreleased track to promote their upcoming boxset.  Before the reunion, when was the last time you could type a sentence like that?  Twenty years ago.

And people here are nitpicking that the unreleased song wasn't one they wanted to hear?

Cheers,
Jon Blum

You'll note, the bitching comes in the main - if not exclusively - from people who weren't there. Interesting new journalistic concept...

This review proves it.

Everywhere on the internet criticism of Mike Love is rampant, everywhere except here, on an anally retentive fanboy site.

Who is right? Well, us obviously.

We alone know that the whole world is critical of Mike because;

  • They read David Leaf's book
  • It's fashionable
  • They're all Basement Brianistas.
                                                                                                         

Out of the whole world, we alone know the truth.

Mike Love is a beautiful spirit.
Yea, but people keep going to the concerts and ENJOYING them.

Stop being argumentative. You know full well JLS fans aren't people.

And actually, even in the little bit of that review I quoted that talks about the show, there's an obvious falsehood:
"Love has been touring roughly the same band for 15 years"
Other than Mike & Bruce, the only band member who was in the band fifteen years ago was Tim Bonhomme. Scott T joined in 2001, as did Cowsill, but Cowsill was on keyboards then. Kirsch joined in 2004, and was on rhythm guitar then, and Christian joined in 2007 or 8, when Cowsill switched to drums and Kirsch to bass.



FYI, I'm pretty sure Christian was in the band already in 2006.

I'm surprised to learn that you hadn't come across it yet (as you seem pretty hip to these things), but you could be right, maybe it just hasn't made the rounds before now (of course, by the time something reaches the likes of youtube, it's not exactly an exclusive anymore). Smiley  I'd actually like to hear these recordings in lossless, myself, but I wouldn't begin to know where to look.

So, as I say, I find it a likeable enough number, well-suited for a live show, and I think it's cool that the fellas debuted it the other day.  I cannot help but wonder what may have recently been done in the studio with the track - what all has been added and how much of the original recordings will be kept.  Is anyone familiar with who is playing what on the original backing track?  I'd be curious to know.

Wow! First "Wild Honey" as an encore, now "Goin' To The Beach". Keep up the great work guys! Which begs the question, with some deductive reasoning... police

Because they performed "Goin' To The Beach" live, it had to be rehearsed. If it was rehearsed, is there a good chance that it is eventually going to be worked into the setlist? If it is being worked into the setlist - why? Why this song over other unreleased and/or lesser known BB album tracks? Is it possible that "Goin' To The Beach" is being released as a single in conjunction with the release of MIC?

If the original tapes were supplemented with new recordings recently (I don't recall if it was confirmed that "GttB" was the one), then who knows, you could be on to something.  It would certainly make sense to have something to submit to radio in promoting MiC.

I thought about that as well "Goin to the Beach" as a single.  It would be very strange promoting the single with a video that is missing Al, Brian, and Mark though.  Creative editing could fix it, but that would involve getting permissions from the participants.  Probably not a likely happening.

I would hang my head in shame of "goin" was the single, its not much of a song with it being the 20th "Do it again" knockoff from ML. I want a better track to promote the box set instead of a "KTSA" outtake.

Mark Lindsay was in the crowd at the Brian show in Montclair, NJ in June of 2011. Foskett was very quick to pick him out.

EDIT - Fixed year.

I wonder if Raider message boards devolve into Paul vs. Mark?  Smokin

I saw Mark @ a casino about 10 years ago, and he was totally cool. I saw the Raiders at an outdoor festival, and Paul wouldn't shut up with his corny jokes. Hmmmm...I see a trend here!

I did the same thing years ago. In an exchange with Carrie Marks no less.   Wall

I'm not one who has heard WIBNTLA yet, but if it has any commercial appeal (I know it's supposed to contain one helluva vocal, at least), then maybe a promo film, utilizing vintage era footage, could be assembled into something in the vein of a "through the years" kind of tribute and submitted to the likes of VH1, or something?


Here's food for thought:  Among the unreleased numbers bound for MiC, what do people think would potentially work as a single?  Something catchy enough, which sells the idea of the box set (and the band's image/legacy) to the public at-large, while still being something you think you could live with as a hardcore fan?

Great link. Here is the instrumental track sync'd with the demo vocals. Lacks guitar parts (which I assume Scott Totten was recently overdubbing) and hopefully some Carl vocals.

http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=JC6DfsQo1RE&desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DJC6DfsQo1RE

Obviously not new as 15, 000 people have viewed the video.

I don't know if it counts, but if this "Do it Again" stereo mix elevates the song to Friends like fidelity, I could see it fitting into contemporary indie radio programming like a hand in glove.
