I used to hear "Your Imagination" a lot. A friend of mine yesterday heard "Break Away" at a Shop Rite in Connecticut.

Heard "Make A Wish" on "Best Buy Radio" in the store when GIOMH was first released.

Probably the most surprising ones for me:
- A few years ago heard "Only With You" from the 2008 POB reissue at Myopic Books in Chicago. They were obviously playing the entire disc because I also heard the instrumental "Holy Man."

- I know this isn't QUITE the same, but...Christmas 2004....my wife and I took a trip to Chicago. We THOUGHT we had brought Smile with us. When we picked up the rental car, my wife took out Smile and...saw that it was just the jewel case -- the CD was still in our player back home! We were so pissed! When we were back at ORD waiting for our return flight, my wife said, "If I didn't know any better, I'd swear I'm hearing 'Song For Children' right now!" Then I heard it! The guy sitting behind us at the gate was listening to it over headphones! I walked over to him, flagged his attention, opened my jacket (revealing the Smile t-shirt I was wearing), and said, "Just wanted to compliment you on your taste in music."

- Where I used to live they had a car show every summer down by the river that was a block away. (They still do the car show, I believe.) Woke up to the strains of "In My Car" blasting from their speakers.

- And this has GOT to be the one to end ALL of it: some years ago when my wife and I were in a small store at the Jersey shore, they had a radio tuned to one of those easy-listening-to-not-scare-the-elderly stations. All of a sudden, we hear: "Judy, Judy, Juuuuuuuudy boppa Judy..." and I think I damaged the glass counter because of how hard my jaw dropped! They were playing "Judy" on that radio station!!! The clerk said that the station played that song a lot for some reason. Only explanation I could think of was that whoever was in charge of the music at that station wanted to keep costs low, get a Beach Boys CD for cheap, and found one of the dozens of cheap-o Morgan-era compilations.

There's a UK radio quiz about the news which plays music before some questions to illustrate the theme.  About ten years ago it was doing a question about new nutritional guidelines and it played a healthy chunk of Vega-Tables.  I didn't know the song then but thought it was amazing.  Imagine my pleasure when I discovered it on Smiley Smile (hence my name). 

"Ten years Ago"? My dad told me about this occuring the other day!

Also, I heard Santa's Beard in morrisons... followed by a COVER of Little saint nick  Grin

The News Quiz goes in quite a lot for repetition of old material - look at Jeremy Hardy's jokes.  There must be a long-time fan in the News Quiz office who brought it out again.   Off to catch up with the new episodes now( I have them all on podcast).

I'm watching the movie Mud (With Matthew McConaughey) on Netflix and bam "Help Me Rhonda" starts playing, it also played over the closing credits.

I did not see a Beach Boys song being featured so prominently in that kind of film, set in the deep south

According to someone who would know.

Seriously, there was a Beach Boys Love You condom?!  Amazing.

I was at the Mexican market down the street from my work (ordered a burrito that day) and Don't Worry Baby was playing over the speakers. Was strange cause they usually have on the Spanish stations. Have heard oldies playing a few more times at that place, but haven't heard any Beach Boys.

I love the fact that your wife could identify a relatively obscure Beach Boys songs over some guy's headphones. Gives me hope that I, too, can someday find the perfect woman to marry.

I was at an Italian restaurant tonight which was playing a bunch of smooth jazz and out of no where, "The Warmth Of The Sun" starts playing. It was a very nice and pleasant surprise to hear it get played.

Around a week ago or so when I was in Japan, I went to this local shopping centre. When I walked in, the song that was playing was to my surprise, Still Cruisin'. There was this group of people dancing in this small area inside, and they were dancing to that song. I didn't pay attention to them much, but it was a pleasant surprise.

Another time, quite a while ago I was at another shopping centre, and Isn't It Time was playing. I also heard the chorus to Help Me Rhonda while walking past a store in the middle of the city (Melbourne).

Steve Wright on BBC Radio 2 is always - always - playing Santa Ana Winds, of all songs. It seems at least every other day or so.

Alas, not the superior unreleased bootleg version...

To me, that version is infinitely inferior. Either way, nice choice, though. I wish we had radio station playing SAW every day.

I mentioned this in another thread, but thought it would be worth mentioning here too because it was so random and amazing. Last night at the bowling alley, I heard "Hot Fun In The Summertime". I don't think I've ever heard anything off of the Summer In Paradise album in any public setting ever, and all indications pointed to that remaining the case. Little did I know that as I was getting ready to bowl with friends in 2014, that my theory would be turned upside down.

Still Cruisin is the jam! I would've danced with them! Or at least videotaped them dancing!
