Moon Dawg

 Bad choice, friend.  "Moon Dawg" is one of the few real surf songs on the album.

 It was a toss up between "County Fair" and "Little Girl You're My Miss America", both of which feature rather insipid lead vocals, but I vote for "County Fair" as worst track.  

 
Moon Dawg (no offense) was too sloppy. I like the instrumentals on the next LP much better. I vote for Moon Dawg. Miss America is just an innocent early sixties ballad, Ten Little Indians isn't single material but fun anyhow, and Summertime Blues is very garage band. I also dislike the Shift. Just silly.

Ten Little Indians, I guess.  None of the arrangements are that inspired, but I especially don't think it worked with the speedy run-through of a simple traditional song.

Summertime Blues. I agree with earlier post--great tune but an uninspired cover.

The clock song is meant to be satirical so I don't mind it. Plus the chorus is kind of darkly funny.

Ten Little Indians.

One of the worst songs I've ever heard, if not the worst.

Surfin' Safari is easily their worst record they made until the mid 70's stinkers and I'll show it no mercy.

Summertime Blues gets my first vote. How can you f*** up such a great song so badly?

When I first heard about Nilsson's Ten Little Indians I thought it was going to be the same song... Nilsson's is much better.  LOL

Ten Little Indians. Horrible, horrible song. Worst single they would ever release.
Logged

On our way through this "backstage" maze, Bruce joined up with the group and said hello, singing "It Never Rains in Southern California" and joking with some of the older ladies. I'm not sure if they knew he was a Beach Boy or simply an enthusiastic elderly gay gentleman.

Cuckoo Clock.

Little Girl is actually one of my favorite songs on the album.

I'm with you. It's my favorite on there. Dennis sounds wonderful.

Agreed. Dennis' vocal is one of the highlights of the album.

What's the matter with Ten Little Indians? It's not exactly good but it's miles away from the worst thing they ever did...

Summertime Blues… just doesn't have the vibe if the original which makes it stand apart.

I'm just wondering what specifically people hate about it. For me it doesn't really stand apart from the other tracks in any way, it's just kinda bland is all.

No track on this album stands apart as being especially bad, any more than any one of a group of midgets stands out as being especially short.

That is why it is my least favorite. There are few bland tunes on there, but it was their first album. The cool thing about listening to the first three albums is hearing how much they progressed in a year.

True. The decision not to include Their Hearts was a bizarre one. But maybe it was felt it didn't fit in with the formula.

I really dig the album, always have..... the development was astonishing from Brian & Co with following albums.....

I get a kick out of listening to the tracking sessions from SOT unsurpassed masters...... love hearing them putting the tracks down and
hearing the rawness and simplicity of how it all started......

glad to have a sealed 62 copy of it in my collection...  Cool Guy

LOL On a related note, I'm trying to figure out if Al is the world's tallest dwarf, or tiniest giant.
