Brian Wilson is in first, obviously. He's the man, he's got the biggest fan club, he writes the songs. He writes the songs.


Then we have Mike Love coming in at a sorta close second with those hooky hooks he wrote.


Then we everybody else and things get a little hazy, probably not even worth ranking their order.


Thoughts? Discussting?

"Over the years, I've been accused of not supporting our new music from this era (67-73) and just wanting to play our hits. That's complete b.s......I was also, as the front man, the one promoting these songs onstage and have the scars to show for it."

Al's Cottonfields is a cover(nothing new there with Al), therefore I would place Bruce in third considering the number of covers of 'I Write The Songs' and 'Disney Girls' and also a hit with 'Beach Girl' by Pat Boone.

If we were talking annual royalties for writting/co-writting it is possibly (in my eyes) Brian/Mike/Bruce/Dennis/Al/Carl.

Carl (help me out here)

How about "What You Do To Me"   (a US #72 in 1983, if the pedia is to be believed)...

He didn't write that one, but he did write "Heaven", which did well regionally; and of course he has co-writer credit on "Dance Dance Dance" and "Good Timin".
