Dam Sam! TOO many votes for the anthem of my Generation (I Get Around)

again voting off InMyRooom hoping more likeminded old guys follow suit.
Agree.  "I Get Around" was, for me, their best track up to this time.  "Fun Fun Fun" was great, but this was better.  Brian's answer to the Beatles/British invasion.  1964 was a blast.  By summer we had the All Summer Long album.  We got Elvis' coolest movie ever, Viva Las Vegas.  From England, James Bond and the Beatles A Hard Day's Night.  Had a paper route to make money.  In the evenings we worked on our car and Famous Monsters models - and kept the 45s spinning.  Simple times, when most folks didn't even lock their doors - house or cars.  It only got better from there.
Good to see that some of us remember.  I haven't counted, but this looks like it's going to be close!

The right songs won!

Though I would have replaced Don't Worry Baby with I Do. And The Warmth Of The Sun and Surfer Girl should have made it to Super Survivor instead.

I'm glad that In My Room made it, but just to be fair, I should mention that I count 12 votes for in my room and 12 for I get around.

Eric is Right. Roll Eyes  The vote stands at 12 to 12.
"In My Room":  pixletwin, shelter, Judd, Smile the Beach Boys love you, beacharg, mikeyj, feelsflow, halblainisgood, Fall Breaks, Watch a Cave, leggo of my ego, drbeachboy
.
"I Get Around":  Love Surrounds Me, EgoHanger1966, Time To Get Alone, Eric Aniversario, Catbirdman, slipping on through, gabo, zachrwolfe, Down by the banks of the Hanky Panky, Matt H, bossaroo, The Dumb Angel
.
No comment on all the eye rolling, feisty retorts and sighs from halblainisgood, as I have no intention of taking any arguments to PMs. Grin  I don't dislike "In My Room"
But, "I Get Around" was an important milestone in The Beach Boys career.  A song more often to get a shout-out at Boy Scout camp fire sing-a-longs.

No, that last post was not a vote. The one right before the tally. He voted earlier in the same round and was just making a comment.

"In My Room"
Feelsflow voted for in my room. Later, he made a comment right before the tally that was not a vote. The vote is 12-12, by my count.

Yes, my vote was posted as Reply # 173.
The other post was me commenting to leggo's post, moaning about how not enough respect was being shown to "I Get Around"

Obviously, yes. Read the last sentence of his post.
And thanks for the help Marianne and Eric.  I've been out all morning having a big breakfast.
Marc, sorry my comment confused the issue and made it look like a vote.  Probably "I Get Around" will lose again, when you call for next new vote.  I didn't even count votes.  Eric caught this one.
Guess nobody's reading my corny stories about being a kid in 1964.

I think it's a vote against IGA, but I think it can easily be read either way.

Two of the right songs now. and thats my opinion to match yours.

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

I think it turned out to be a tie and it was just broken against I Get Around

If retro wants their vote counted they need to clarify it. As it is, this round is still hanging.
