There's a decent chance the above post is horrifically embarrassing, so I'll apologise here

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.

"Hold Me"  Still missing "The Right Lane" - the best rocker on the long-player.  The first time I heard it, I thought Steve Stills was on lead guitar.

I don't find Hurry Love any more of a 'well known' drag than Heaven.

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
Carl Wilson is the self-titled debut album of The Beach Boys band member, Carl Wilson. The youngest of the three Wilson brothers in the band, Carl Wilson was reportedly at this time unhappy with the progress being made by The Beach Boys creatively. So Carl, just as his brother Dennis had a few years earlier, signed a contract with James William Guercio's CBS-distributed Caribou Records. The album was released on March 27, 1981 and peaked at number 185 on the Billboard 200. Of the eight tracks on the album, seven of them are written by Carl Wilson and Myrna Smith, who was the wife of Carl's then manager Jerry Schilling, with track six being written by Carl, Myrna and Michael Sun.


Hurry Love, set it free. (6)

We are now at the FINAL ROUND. Per the usual, vote for your FAVORITE TRACK. The track with most votes will be voted SOLO SURVIVOR.

Tally on July 31st

Hold Me
Heaven
Seems So Long Ago

Round#1 - The Grammy July 18
Round#2 - The Right Lane July 21
Round#3 - What You Gonna Do About Me July 23
Round#4 - Bright Lights July 25
Round#5 - Hurry Love July 29

This one seemed the obvious choice from the get-go.

My favorite track, Heaven.

Getting to this:
"Bright Lights"
"The Right Lane" was on my stronger songs list and hate to see it taken out so early, it was a powerful stand-out in the live shows.  But.  I think we all know where this is headed... 
Yep, down the S-bend then straight on 'til oblivion
Right.  Stop right there...
I'm much too old to try that.  I meant this:
"Heaven"

On first listen, and ever since, there was just one song off this that stood out. That's what I'm gonna vote for.
