Today's song is The Night Was So Young.

There's something Four Seasons-ish about "TNWSY". One of the more polished songs on Love You. Five.

It's an incredible ballad! Such a wonderful soaring falsetto from Brian! Some of the lyrics are weird (...I pour some milk and I start to think...) but that's ok because for me that's part of the charm of this album. And Carl sounds great as always. FIVE

Surprised by the 1/5 votes. I was waffling between 4 and 5. In the end, I voted 5/5. It's a bit repetitive, but a pretty song.

What a wonderful song. I love how Brian and Dennis trade off the verses with their gruff 70s vocals, and the middle eight with Carl is the icing on the cake. A stand out track on this album. FIVE

Today's song is Let's Put Our Hearts Together.

This song had to grow on me before I could appreciate it. Some rather raw emotion on this track. Brian sounds a tad like Lemmy from Motorhead singing a soft song. Marilyn sounds angelic in comparison. All in all I find it to be pleasant, although when I first bought the Love You LP I didn't really care for it. I give it a 3.

I agree, it's pretty raw in the emotions department. It reminds me of a similarly raw duet sung by Kate Bush and Elton John on Kate's 50 Words for Snow----only they weren't married, lol. Love it when the backing vocals enter at 1:37 and that chord sequence at the end. Raw it is, but there's also something very tender and touching about it. Five.

Today's song is I Wanna Pick You Up.

I gave it a four (as a gasp goes up from my followers, lol), basically because of the lyrics, whatever they may mean (you can pat someone on the butt once too often in my book). But the harmonies and the overall sound are sheer magic.

Another five for "Airplane" over here. Smokin

"Love Is A Woman" is a great laid-back closer to a great album. I wouldn't have said this five years ago! It's only since I starting looking at Love You as outsider music that the penny dropped. Grin

Five (again).

Dang! Missed the last two votes. I know "I Wanna Pick You Up" is supposed to be about being a father, but the way it's sung feels more romantic to me. I like the song, but it feels creepy to me.

I love "Airplane." The synthesizers really seem to stand out on this track in a pleasing way.

I gave "Love Is a Woman" a 5. I think it's a great closer.

Brian's vocals are rough but I think it enhances the song. I dig Al's vocals on the counting bridge. Mike sounds smooth. It's a great closing number. FIVE

Again the change in attitude towards these songs is spectacular. Recently fans seemed obsessed with "Ding Dang", saying it's "the greatest thing" but cited "Love Is A Woman" as the low point of the album. But now DD is juust 3 & LIAW is 5 in everybody's book. Tiny observation, really.

Short notice: the cat you see to the left is the best. Not counting your indoor cat who might have habit sitting at your left side when you post at SmileySmile.

Boy dislikes girl. The girl dislikes that boy. People dislike the boy AND girl. Question - WHO dislikes these people?

Pom pom generation thinks The Baby boomers can't hopscotch into admitting that they're ANYthing BUT cool & the boom they represent is archaic thing by now.
