That is pretty funny. On the other hand, it's not so hard to understand or believe. Some kid born in, say, 2000, raised in a nonmusical or differently musical (non-pop oriented) family could easily not know Sir Paul--by name, anyway. (I doubt there are many who wouldn't recognize some tune or other, omnipresent as they are.)

You'd think they'd at least know of him from 'New' LOL

Seriously though, it's a decent song, but my God it needs to lose the autotune.

I thought the same thing. Since we're not on the main forum I don't worry that there will be a flood of anti-pitch correction hysteria here as I say, this song was a perfect example to me of how as an effect, autotune is used, but not at all to my liking. Very reminiscent of how Justin Vernon ("Bon Iver" frontman/alter ego/whatever) used it on his second album. And of course, Vernon worked with Kanye on some things, so it's not at all surprising to see that. But it is distracting to me, and the kind of thing that I'd wager will eventually date the recording in a very negative way. (My mantra in most things: don't hop too firmly on a trend or the pendulum will swing hard away from you.)

Makes me wonder how and/or if, Brian and the Boys are known.  I know in my house, my kids can sing along to tons of Beach Boys stuff... but I doubt if they know any Beatles.  Actually, I'm pretty sure they don't.  Granted they're quite young and I almost never play the Beatles.  Nevertheless... they actually LIKE the Beach Boys and request it!



....which brings up a hypothesis of mine, regarding the TROO legacy of the Beatles.  Once the boomers (and their offspring) are gone, and no one is around to provide this incessant fawning over the supposed importance of this band (hee.) -- will the masses be requesting the damn White Album?  Or will they be requesting Surfin' USA?  My hypothesis has always favored the legacy of the Beach Boys.

I mean seriously... anyone find any comparison between "Let Him Run Wild" and anything the Beatles did?

Hello?  This is still the Sandbox isn't it?  If I can't get some love for bashing the Beatles in the SMilEYSmIlE sandbox forum... then we're all fuked.  Seriously.

I'm almost surprised at how eagerly I would choose the Beach Boys over the Beatles in every example given. I like what the guy setting up the examples said about WIBN versus "Nowhere Man":
Quote
Wouldn't It Be Nice is a masterpiece arrangement, and the bridge is Otherworldly. But I really do like Nowhere Man's folksy feel. So I'll call it a tie
A "folksy feel" is clearly the equivalent to "masterpiece" and "otherworldly".

That is me who did those comparisons.

I did not equivocate "masterpiece" with "folksy," I was merely making observations about each song in isolation. Nowhere Man is a masterpiece too, IMO, it's just that I happened to focus on its folksy character when deciding to write what stands out about it.

I was just joking about jabbing the Beatles... (cuz it's fun to jab nervous Beatles fans) -- but for me, the Beach Boys are like some sort of massive life, stress relief moment of Zen.  Like a cool drink of water when my throat is parched.  And each time, a massive weight is lifted off my chest, the air draws in easy -- like a cool, crisp gentle breeze... and I can BREATHE...
