Wow, never knew there was such dislike for What's Wrong nor did I ever figure it for filler...but I guess I can see why it would be by its lyrics, but that funky harmonica is such ear candy...Adam Marsland's performance on his perfect CW/DW Live Tribute made me realize how legit the song is and makes me sing it all the time to myself.

I think I might vote Thoughts of You, I used to really like it but I skip it a lot more lately.

What's Wrong

Nice enough, but sandwiched between my two favourite tracks on the album it kinda seems a little throwaway...

What's Wrong

God, these Survivor threads make me feel like such an a$$hole. I don't know if I will be able to vote against anything beyond "What's Wrong" and "Pacific Ocean Blues"

Why? Just because you vote for a song doesn't mean that it sucks or that you don't like it. Just that it is your 12th favorite song of the album and Pacific Ocean Blues will be your eleventh favorite track next round. Smiley

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.


Saved by Rock 'n Roll but not the vote. (17)

Per the usual, vote for your LEAST FAVORITE TRACK. The track with most votes will be voted off.

Tally on July 20th.

River Song
Moonshine
Friday Night
Dreamer
Thoughts of You
Time
You and I
Pacific Ocean Blues
Farewell My Friend
Rainbows
End of the Show

Round#1 - What's Wrong July 18

My second vote will go to Friday Night. I like the song, but it drags on a bit too long.

I like "What's Wrong" - what's wrong with you voters?  Or what's wrong with me?
I'm sticking with my first choice:
"Pacific Ocean Blues"

End of the Show

Would hate to see Friday Night drop out early - that intro sends shivers up my spine, every listen. Makes me think This is what late '70's Beach Boys could've - and should've - sounded like!

"Time" would be the next choice. I love the instrumental coda but compared to the other 10, I'll throw this one away first. This one is going to get hard for me.
