Of the remaining, I suppose I gotta go for Still Cruisin'. Though I wouldn't mind seeing SNJ winning, which I foresee.

Hey Little Tomboy is creepy. Banging women by the pool is fun and conjures up warm summer thoughts a Beach Boys song should.

The Brianista Prayer

Oh Brian
Thou Art In Hawthorne,
Harmonied Be Thy name
Your Kingdom Come,
Your Steak Well Done,
On Stage As It Is In Studio,
Give Us This Day, Our Shortenin' Bread
And Forgive Us Our Bootlegs,
As We Also Have Forgiven Our Wife And Managers,
And Lead Us Not Into Kokomo,
But Deliver Us From Mike Love.
Amen.  ---hypehat

For a moment I didn't realize this was the final round and I thought all the Somewhere Near Japan votes were crazy.

Somewhere Near Japan.  (I can't believe "Still Cruisin'" made it to the final round over "Island Girl" and "In My Car")

Still Cruisin, by a big margin for me. But yeah, it probably can't win at this point

Brian on why he loves God Only Knows: "Because Paul McCartney said it was his favourite song"

"New rule: Having anything to do with the creation of a punk rawk version of "All You Need Is Love" (never with the horn part because lol hornz are silly and dumb) gets you the death penalty. No questions, no trial, it's your fault, pick out your coffin." - runnersdialzero

For me it comes down to Kokomo and SNJ, the latter making zero impression on me in 1989 but which in recent years has become a favorite track from their later years.  Kokomo, however, I highly resented in 1988 for going to #1 while "Love and Mercy" and Brian's impressive solo debut went largely unbought and unloved by the public.   I am no Mike Love fan, but much later (despite overexposure via radio, concerts and every Mike Love interview) I came to grudgingly acknowledge he contributed an irresistably catchy hook and an atypically smooth, non-nasal vocal.  Add Carl Wilson magic on the chorus, and it's understandable why it's one of their most popular tracks.  So to my surprise, I am voting for:

Kokomo

This is a tough one, but gotta go with Kokomo. Somewhere near japan being close second. Kokomo's the song that hooked me to find and listen the later BB-stuff.
