The music wasn't bad at all. However, the constant laughing got old fast.
Should have had only the occasional laugh at the end of a music session, allowing a guffaw at the end.
I give it a 2.

Shite, I missed "Punchline". I would have given it 4. I see Nola BB Fan gave it 2, not 1. Perhaps you can add my 4 at the same time, Polly. Grin

"Surfer Girl" is the song that made it clear that the Boys were here to stay. One of their very best ballads, I rate it higher than "In My Room" (in real life, that is, not in this poll). 5, 5, 5.

At the time I posted, there wasn't a poll for Punchline. Bakers Man was still up there. So that "1" wasn't yours truly.

Now we're getting to some real good stuff again.

Surfer Girl is seemingly such a simple song, and it is - simply great.

A 5 plus for sure.

Not a bad thing at all. It makes one more inclined to comment (and vote)...

Solid 5 for Surfer Girl, one of Brian's sweetest ballads. Love that sweeping falsetto. Love that binaural mix on the 1998 Endless Harmony cd.

I don't see it on lyric sites but my cloth ears have always heard Brian's heart-breaking falsetto in the tag of "Surfer Girl" as "little one". (It wouldn't surprise me if the word "heart-breaking" had been invented for that moment.)

Still on "Surfer Girl"... I love doo wop and this song seems to be taking that style just one step further. "In My Room" is an entirely different matter.

I realize that there are those who don't like Catch a Wave. But I absolutely love it.
The song makes me think of the beach, the fun, the waves (via Maureen Love's harp), the thrill of knowing how to use a surf board so that you can "sit on top of the world."
A song for a more carefree time.

A 5.
This album starts with 3 very strong tracks.

PS. Was listening to a recording of this just now from the soundcheck at the Bossier City show last July - only recorded from the instrumental break to the end. Brian sang lead and sounded like he enjoyed the song. As he should.
(They also sang "Hawaii" which I got the whole recording of. Al and Matt handled that song)

I hear "little one", as well. Who hears otherwise?

Isn't it obvious? I didn't see it being made big question what Brian sings there.

It's not a big question. It's just that it hasn't been in any of the online lyrics I've seen. Odd, as it's an essential part of the song and, even to these cloth ears, not that hard to pick out. 3D

The lyrics sites don't give details besides V & Ch. Lucky if you see ad-libs in brackets.

That's not true of "SG" where they include the tag ("Girl surfer, girl, my little surfer girl" repeated three times) only they insist that Brian's singing "Well", which is nonsense.

Luckily I just found one that gets it right:

http://songmeanings.com/songs/view/4882/  

As for "Catch A Wave", who in the heck gave it a 1??? Surely it shows Brian in full control of his powers in the studio. It has everything. Listen to the vocals!

Someone (c-man?) pointed out that despite the arrival of Wrecking Crew personnel on this album it's Dennis playing drums on "CAW".

Not to forget Maureen's harp. What a track. 5.

What a beautiful, carefree song!

Love the late fifties-style string lines, as in The Chantels' "Look In My Eyes" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7L63c2DTpag).

Elizabeth has said everything else.
