I heard a muzak version of Surf's Up as well in a doctors' office waiting room around September as well.

Yep, I've heard that one, too - about 22 years ago, in the hallway at work. These days, it's all Adult Contemporary and Oldies, but in those days, it was still honest-to-God muzak. "Sail On Sailor" is another one I'd hear now and again. But I think I only heard "Surf's Up" that once.

And excellent songs at that.  Sadly, their songs from that era don't usually get heard on mainstream radio as much as their early stuff.  Oh, excepting of course Kokomo.
Here, it's "California Dreamin'". Whenever they say "& now we'll play the BBs", I know what it is. These guys are living legends, yet the radio will seek out some long-forgotten band nobody heard of & play 5 various songs by them. Iron logic.

Few weeks back coming of a diner I heard "Saturday Night." That was odd.

I work at a Metro Market in Milwaukee (modeled after Mariano's and owned by Bob Mariano) and they only play muzak over the speakers. I have heard Warmth Of The Sun and Surfer Girl, but I'm sure they play more that I've missed. I've also heard Junk (by Paul McCartney), Mother Nature's Son, When I'm Sixty Four, and many, many, other horrible instrumentals.

Brian introduced The Little Girl I Once Knew by saying that the first two notes sounded "Chinese," but not to worry because the rest of the song was "American."

I was pleasantly surprised to hear Blue Christmas at the mall today.

I also enjoyed discovering this short-lived Christmas themed thread from 2011. I'd be stunned to hear some of those songs in public! http://smileysmile.net/board/index.php/topic,11903.0.html

There's also a similar thread here, if interested...

Oh, I heard I Can Hear Music in an airport a few weeks ago. Not an unpopular song, but not among their most popular either.

in the stores and on the radio I've heard "Little Saint Nick" and "The Man With All The Toys" countless times...however, I heard "Christmas Day" today while in the car...I don't think I've EVER heard that on the radio before!

Last year at Goodwill I heard Brian's version of "We Wish You a Merry Christmas". I've never listened to his christmas album all the way through, so I didn't actually recognize it at first, all I could think was "wow, this is really awful".

On a better note, a CD One-Price Dry Cleaners was playing the BBs "Santa Claus is Coming to Town", which I stayed behind to listen to, even though I was halfway out the door when it started playing.

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.

But there's already a muzak version of Disney Girls on Surf's Up.

I was in a Coach store (of all places!) in the mall today and heard ... I'm not actually sure. It was one of the more obscure (and mediocre) songs from their Christmas album, but I wasn't sure which one it was, to be honest. I think it was either "Christmas Day" or "Merry Christmas, Baby." Or perhaps "Santa's Beard?" Or, did they ever do any Christmas songs that weren't on that album? At any rate I think it's the most obscure BB song I've ever heard in a public place, to the extent that even I didn't know which song it was! But it was definitely the BB's, and it was definitely a Christmas song.

CHRISTMAS DAY, not once but twice

first while pumping gas into my car at a Speedway about 2 weeks ago, over their outside PA

2nd, just last night while pumping gas AT THE SAME SPEEDWAY station!  Al Jardine's 1st lead vocal once again!

I guess if there's any time of year for that kind of coincidence to occur it is now (maybe the manager's a beach boys fan)

I've heard "Little Saint Nick" about five times in the past day, it's even playing on the music station while I'm writing this comment! I also heard "Merry Christmas, Baby" out in public for the first time while at K-Mart.

Not the grocery store, but about half an hour into NPR's The Splendid Table, they exited a segment about a vegetarian holiday meal with, you guessed it, "Vegatables." Not sure of the version though: it wasn't BBs/BW.

It could've been Laughing Gravy (Jan & Dean).

Little Saint Nick.

Instruments were played in Aisle 3 where the cereal is at and vocals over at the produce section at the other side of the store.   Grin

While riding with a relative that has XM radio, I heard "Do it Again" and "Marcella" on the Classic Vinyl channel. I was pleasantly surprised!

God Only Knows on The Path, season 2 episode 7 (I think?) Cool usage too, with Aaron Paul and his TV daughter singing along to it in the car and then the music getting all distorted.
