Welcome back, one and all, to the first thread of the Beach Boys Solo Survivor.

The Solo Survivors are going to tackle the main solo albums of members of the Beach Boys. This will not include solo albums released prior to membership in the Beach Boys. This will also not include works done by members who were participating in different groups (ie David Marks in The Moon or The Marksmen) nor will it include "Best Of" albums or rehash albums (ie Summertime Cruisin' by Mike Love and Bruce Johnston will not be included. This also means we will not be including Brian Wilson Presents SMiLE or I Just Wasn't Made For These Times.) Lastly, we will not be including EP's or Unreleased Albums.

Some of the Solo Survivor albums may be hard to come across. Smilers are encouraged to locate legal copies of the solo albums. I expect these rounds to go quicker with less voting than normal. No big deal.

So without further ado...

Quote
Pacific Ocean Blue is Dennis Wilson's only studio album, released in 1977. It was the debut and final studio album released by this member of the Beach Boys, and when released, was both warmly received critically, and noted for outselling the Beach Boys' contemporary efforts.


I'm the kind of track who gets voted off in the penultimate round. (12)

Here we are, at the end of the show!!

Per the usual, vote for your FAVORITE TRACK. The track with most votes will be voted POB's SOLO SURVIVOR.

Tally on August 9th

River Song
Thoughts of You
Farewell My Friend

Round#1 - What's Wrong July 18
Round#2 - Friday Night July 21
Round#3 - Pacific Ocean Blues July 23
Round#4 - You and I July 25
Round#5 - Dreamer July 29
Round#6 - Moonshine July 31
Round#7 - Rainbows August 3
Round#8 - End of the Show August 5
Round#9 - Time August 7

I love Thoughts of You. Especially the part where it goes into such a dark/semi-violent phase to emerge into something so fragile and pleading. "Loneliness is a very special place." But ultimately it is not my fave.

River Song (possibly the obvious winner from the beginning) is one of the most fantastic productions of the entire Beach Boys Oeuvre. But it's not the track that, when I first heard it, gave me a strange ache in my heart. River Song didn't fill me with a sense of eternity and the longing that my favorite track did.

Farewell My Friend, is my favorite track on POB.

A band called The Beach Boys are mostly going to be a fun in the sun-themed group. And that has, is, and will always be just as it should. There needs to be ONE classic band that isn't a pack of endless "artistic" moan. All people wanna do is make The Beach Boys into another Beatles they are less tired of.
And, for anyone who has actually experienced them, surfing and cars carry PLENTY of emotion and life experience. They can carry as much metaphor as any Van Dyke Parks clever epistle.

Moonshine is probably my favorite.  I also like all 3 of the remaining songs.  My vote will go to Farewell My Friend.

According to someone who would know.

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

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

Sir, you are mocking me. I demand satisfaction!
Then, you shall have it, Sir!

I challenge you to Unleash The Love, as day breaks over the ocean!

And, as a professed Whovian, how can you not vote for River Song?

River Song

It's head and shoulders above anything else the BB's were doing at the time, and that includes Love You. Incredible, incredible piece of work.

River Song and Moonshine are my favorites.  Both should have been Beach Boy tracks!
