My favorite song on the album went first...
It was your favorite, really? You're some trick pony. I feared that "Runnin' around the World" would go 1st. So next in my schedule:

"Paradise Found". [After that, "On & on & on", bad cover of bad song by bad quartet.]
I bought this album on release, in 1981.  Back then it did not sounded dated, though some of it does now - over thirty years later.  I still play my vinyl copy occasionally (the Celebration records too - I have them).  "On and On and On" is my second favorite track.  I loved ABBA back in the day, and still do - they will never become dated.  Think you'll find they have lots of fans here on the board, including pixletwin.  The ladies make top ten vocalist lists too.  My favorite is Agnetha.  Best albums, The Album and Arrival.

ON and ON and ON is probably my favorite song on this album.

We'll we have a four-way tie between Running Around The World, Calendar Girl, Looking Back With Love, and Paradise Found.

Next new vote for any of those four will win the round.

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

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

Runnin' Around The World is runnin' to the losers shed. (5)

Y'all know the drill. Vote off your LEAST FAVORITE TRACK... and away we go!

Tally on August 24th

Well, if you'll feel better, I actually like their "Thank you for the music". That guy can play some keyboard.


You're getting closer.  The following two tracks, "I Wonder (Departure)" and "I'm a Marionette" are even better - let the record play.
Wait, I'm in a voting thread...
"One Good Reason"  will do.
