Today's song is Don't Go Near The Water.

Didn't like it for decades but I do now. Side one of Surf's Up! is closer to what was happening at the time than side two, which is in a field of one. I've since caught up with side one----or rather it's caught up with me. Grin

Five.

Today's song could be 5 if they got rid of that pseudo-mystic highly disinteresting intro/ recurring riff which really drags it. 3.5 rounded to 4.

Today's song is Long Promised Road.

This is the track that got me into side one of Surf's Up. Of its many magical moments, the most magical for me is at the words "long promised road", when that synth texture kicks in.

If I remember correctly, SWD has pointed out that the backing vocals are Al triple-tracked.

And if anything deserves a five, it's this stunning Carl composition.

It's goofy fun song with cool effects. Double it with Al (& Brian) deliberately doing funny voice. Cheesy 5.

The sonic effects used on this track are great. However, the subject matter makes me skip this one if I’m ever playing the album in front of people. Even when I’m alone listening to this I don’t want to think about feet.

Makes me wish that Capitol would release a “Alternate Surf’s Up” with Dennis’ contributions. Take off ‘Take A Load Off Your Feet’ and ‘Student Demonstation Time’ and you’ve got a really really solid album...makes me wonder how much more popular this album would’ve been without its weirder tracks.

2/5

I'd rather not think about feet either. That said, whenever I'm in a certain type of shop I invariably find myself looking out for avocado cream. LOL

In a way, the album's weirder tracks balance out the epic ones rather nicely. And "Feet" is about as weird as it gets. Grin

Five.

Today's song is Disney Girls.

Heard Bruce sing this at the BB concert last year. He can still do it, you know. But nothing beats the version on Surf's Up.

3D Hooray!

"Disney Girls" - dislike it immensely. 1. That said, agree with past post that it's best in SU, sung live - inferior.

I think it’s a great song musically and lyrically, but my like of it has waned the last several years. Still, it’s a great track on this record, I give it a 4/5 (bearing in mind that it’s no where near as good as the last 3 tracks on this album).

Definitely Bruce's signature Beach Boys song.  I think it thematically fits the album perfectly since Surf's Up deals with issues with the environment and turmoil on college campuses, and here's this song, longing for the good ole days.
