One Good Reason.  I'm glad it's lasted this long, but it's not as good as the others.

Burn, "Be My Baby"!!!  Evil

P.S. That almost sounds violent. I assure you all that I am a very peaceful person.

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

This album is an easy target, but I actually like it better than a lot of other solo Beach Boys records. Heck I even like it better than a few Beach Boys records!!!  LOL


Quote
Looking Back with Love is Mike Love's only solo album. It was released in 1981 under Boardwalk Records. The track "Be My Baby" was produced by Brian Wilson, who also sings background vocals on the cut.
Strangely, some copies came with stickers promoting the album as "the first solo album by a Beach Boys member", despite the release of Dennis Wilson's Pacific Ocean Blue four years earlier, Carl Wilson's self-titled album earlier in 1981, and Bruce Johnston recording solo albums before he even joined the band, in addition to his 1977 album Going Public.
Also of note is the fact that the song "On and On and On" was a cover of an ABBA song which was directly influenced by a 1968 Beach Boys song called "Do It Again".

Here is the whole album: http://youtu.be/UYNUF-Sw0RQ

Thank goodness we don't have to listen to this one again.  (7)

"Be My Baby" is wretched and the other 2 are instantly forgettable. I have to surrender this time.

My most tolerated song was "Calender Girl" not that it matters any more.

Strange one.  My favorites went in rounds 1, 3 and 6.  From what's left I like
"One Good Reason" the best.

Be My Baby only got this far because Brian co-produced it.  Evil

Teach Me Tonight is much better and has a very good Mike lead.

But One Good Reason is a well written song and Mike also does a good job on it so it gets my vote.
