5. Charming tune. I like old school things, its datedness is plus.

I'm glad "Surfer Moon" got 4 "5"s. Smiley

This next song is 5, with/ without drum start. It brings joy, thanks to joyful vocals. The Honeys did it well but Ginger Blake is my favorite voice.

In my book "SBS" is this album's equivalent of "Noble Surfer"----a bit iffy. But only a bit. 4.

5. Fun track. I dubbed it "soccer song" as it sounds like what local sports channel played during matches.

Brilliant instrumental, particularly when it drops a minor third towards the end. Sheer magic!

Little Deuce Coupe was the first Beach Boys song I ever heard. I was a little kid, the year was probably 1976. It's not my favorite Beach Boys song but I always love to hear it. I had my aunt's old Surfer Girl/Little Deuce Coupe 45 and I'm not sure which song I played more, but I wore out both sides. Later in life I became impressed at how well Mike Love  mastered the double-tracking of his vocals. 5 stars.

Really, RR.Thud

I first heard "LDC" on French radio in '63. I didn't know what it was at first, because I was expecting the title to sound different. But that chord change at the start of the chorus really floored me! I'm in good company it seems, as Frank Zappa mentioned it as being a pivotal moment in pop.

Fabulous little song. If I'd been around to vote I would have given it 5. :=)

"In My Room" gets a 5 too. If "Surfer Girl" has its origins in doo wop, "IMR" looks to the "white" side of vocal pop.

The chord at "sigh" is pure heaven. And the rest isn't far behind...

My daughter used to laugh at Brian's falsetto on this one. I just hear Brian right on top of his game. 5.

Great to hear Dennis and Brian trading lines. Alan was back by now and plays bass on this and other tracks.

And, of course, there's that great tag with its "Walk Like A Man" falsetto line.
