Three-way tie between One Good Reason, On and On and On, and Paradise found. Come on voters! I'll give this 4 more hours.

I have just listened to this album for the first time in years so I could get in on this voting. As it turns out, the only song I kind of liked at all was the cover of "Calender Girl" which has already bit the dust. Looking at what's left, I'll have to go with "Paradise Lost" which is a huge shart upon the Beach Boys legacy and kind of hints at how Mike really feels about Pet Sounds.

I'll go with "Paradise Found" Just to move on.  This record has some guilty pleasures, but my favorites are fading fast.  What is everybody hearing that I'm not.  Glad Roger stood up for "Calendar Girl" - Mike did this okay.  Honestly though, I listen to the version on my Adult/Child boot, that's the version I really like.

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

Paradise was Found and after some considerable consideration was lost again.  (6)

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

"Be My Baby" because it is a very weak production of a song that defined intense production and inspired Brian Wilson to form the Ramones.

Looks like it will be going on this round.  But not with my help.

I've got a reason to vote for:
"Over and Over"...but it's hardly worth mentioning.
