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

Just going to pick from the ones getting a bunch of mentions.  All of these will be gone soon, and we will get to the heart of the record.  Have said it before, but my original feelings when I heard this for the first time were why, why didn't he do this with the Beach Boys.  It could have been so much better.  As John says, "One for the Boys" was a missed opportunity.  It's no "Passin' By" - that's for sure.  My vote:
"One for The Boys"

Brian Wilson is the eponymous debut solo album by Brian Wilson released in July 1988 on Sire Records. Working with an array of collaborators including his therapist Eugene Landy, Wilson accordingly themed the album around love and spirituality exemplified by its lead single "Love and Mercy". Although the album's sessions were contentious, where some participants demanded a progressive artistic statement versus conventional pop songs, nearly a quarter of the LP is devoted to "Rio Grande", a piece which was intended to rekindle Wilson's experimental drive from the mid 1960s and early 1970s.
It was voted one of the best albums of 1988 by NME, and as part of its acclaim, garnered the nickname "Pet Sounds '88" among some critics.Brian Wilson has since been reissued on several different formats with bonus tracks, and cited by some as a standout in Wilson's solo oeuvre.

The album is on Spotify!

As heads up to those who mav not have seen:

Mike Love's survivor album is currently in limbo. There is a 4-way tie that needs to be broken before that thread can move on.

If you haven't voted there yet, do it now!

The Brianista Prayer

Oh Brian
Thou Art In Hawthorne,
Harmonied Be Thy name
Your Kingdom Come,
Your Steak Well Done,
On Stage As It Is In Studio,
Give Us This Day, Our Shortenin' Bread
And Forgive Us Our Bootlegs,
As We Also Have Forgiven Our Wife And Managers,
And Lead Us Not Into Kokomo,
But Deliver Us From Mike Love.
Amen.  ---hypehat

I've been voting Let it shine, but I now opt for strategic voting for the first time in these polls, since it looks like my views on BW '88 are seriously at odds with the general public, and all my favorite tracks are getting voted off first...

So my vote goes to Meet me in my dreams tonight.

I know a lot of folks love it, but it has always been a grade-A stinker to me. Embarrassing, pseudo-macho, strained vocal...yuck. Repetitive melody, boring, over-acted 5-hour energy fluff. Hate it. Only Let it shine is worse.

Night Time ROCKS. Walkin' the Line is serious stomping cool. What is wrong with you people?

"Caroline, No" sequel or not, I just don't think it's that good of a song.
