Today's song is All I Want to Do.

I might be in the minority with my opinion....but this song gets a big 5 from me. Hardest rockin' song they ever did, with an X-rated fade-out. Full balls to the walls rock & roll, and I love that kind of sh!t. I for one am glad the Beach Boys have at least one song like this in their catalog.

Absolutely! I've always been impressed by Mike's vocal. It's not easy to pull off a vocal like that. It's kinda their 'Helter Skelter' (but even more uncharacteristic).

Agreed! Totally their Helter Skelter.

Travesty. No way is it BBs' "Helter Skelter". There isn't such thing as BBs' "Helter Skelter". It doesn't rock as much, it doesn't fit Mike to sing like that, thankfully he didn't try it again. Regardless, song is epic fail. 1.

Wise people gave "Bluebirds" 2 1's. Smiley Add the other "1" to the boredom kingdom. Ta. Smiley

Dennis' dull Friends tracks, then BWM - big step in quality. 4.

Thank you very much!

Look, I completely agree. Always has been a favourite of mine from that period - also features some of my favourite vocals from Mike. Bit of a shame that they never really did more songs like this

All I Want To Do = 1 (or zero if it was an option). Just pointless. "I just want to do it with you"? Sorry, no thanks. There are too many other Beach Boys songs I'd rather spend my precious time with.

That schmaltzy piano in the beginning just ruins it for me. There are some really beautiful moments in this tune, but there’s not much dimension to the whole piece. Love the outro though. 3/5

The contrast between "ALWTD" and "TNFP" couldn't be much greater! LOL  Which in a way is the charm of 20/20---- how could anyone tire of listening to this album with so much variety on board? So yes, it fits in very nicely, even though it's all icing and no cake at times. 

Five.

Actually, I've been going through my outtakes and rarities and whatnot and bumped into a version of "Faraway Place" with drums! No idea what the story is behind that one...

Not my thing. It's the only song on the album I dislike. Bruce is a talented guy but his stuff usually bores me. One. But really zero.

A fascinatingly laid-back version I only heard more than 30 years after Al's revamp (a massive hit in the UK).

Five.

Wonderfully soporific (in the best sense of the word). The music is a perfect fit. Five.

I love this beautiful and gentle song. Sure sounds like it would fit perfectly on the Friends album. FIVE!

One. But really zero.
I'd give it 0 as well.

I like this "Cotton Fields". It's still got Al's enthusiastic lead. 3D

I really doubt that IWS would fit in with Friends crowd. Maybe I'm used to it being in 20/20. Anyhoo, marvellous song. 5.

Wata', add "1" to Bruce song Smiley & "5" to Al song. 3D Deal? Smiley

My favorite of Brian's waltzes. I consider TTGA to be one of their best songs from the late 60s. Beautiful song. FIVE
