Easy one for me: "Rio Grande"

Not a fan of L&M (like the concept, but not the song)

I love the acapella chorus part of L&M, but I prefer Melt Away as a whole song.

My choice is MA.

Edit: Changed from Melt Away to Rio Grande.  I just listened to RG again and as feelsflow reminded me,  I re-experienced a little of the initial thrill, delight and awe I felt in 1988 hearing it for the first time.

It could be Melt Away on another day.

On our way through this "backstage" maze, Bruce joined up with the group and said hello, singing "It Never Rains in Southern California" and joking with some of the older ladies. I'm not sure if they knew he was a Beach Boy or simply an enthusiastic elderly gay gentleman.

Rio Grande.

Don't think of it as a song, but a beautiful interwoven series of linked chants.

Would be unusual if "Rio Grande" made it to finals, otherwise, no, I'm voting for "Love & Mercy".

But this IS the finals…

These are the three I figured would be the final.  My favorites have changed many times over the years.  In fact when I played the record after voting to off "There's So Many" last week, I hoped that would make the final.  "There's So Many" is a great performance of a great song.  If that had made it, that would be my vote.
I'm not so sure this performance of "Love and Mercy" belongs here, though the song does.  "Melt Away" is such a heart-tugger, but I'm going to go with the most ambitious track:
"Rio Grande" is what everybody was hoping for in 1988, a SMiLE like epic.

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