Where'd you get that Winfrey thing? Al's written "Lookin' At Tomorrow".

What about "Susie Cincinnati", "Lady Lynda" etc.?

I read the Surf's Up wiki page but Al's name stands 1st. Gary Winfrey is their old chum, he just helped here & there. I started as lurker here at Smiley & never did I read that people said it's mainly Gary Winfrey song. So, it's Al's.

I've no idea how big Gary's input was. And I see that Al's name comes first in the list of authors of "All This Is That". So you see, all's well that ends well. :=)

Fair game - that said, I didn't see people give credit to Al for "All This Is That", they usually would say "great BBs song written without Brian's help". Re: LAT, some 2ndary people shouldn't be counted. Gary Winfrey isn't BB. It's mainly written by Al. As I said, I didn't read any threads with anybody telling Gary's main songwriter & Al just helped. Therefore, it's Al's song. Let's not take credit from him & attribute it to some other people.

Btw, "Take A Load off Your Feet" is 1st Al song than Brian - c-man confirmed it in old thread. police

Al and Gary WInfrey initially wrote "Feet", but later on Brian provided additional lyrics (probably the opening verse, which he sings) and helped with the melody (probably the bridge, which he also sings).

I don't think She's Got Rhythm is an Al Jardine composition, is it?
According to AGD's site, he co-wrote the song with Brian and Ron Altbach.

http://www.esquarterly.com/bellagio/albumarchive3.html

I think esquarterly.com may have made an error there. I see it listed multiple places as a Brian / Mike / Ron song, including the official liner notes: http://albumlinernotes.com/M.I.U._L.A.html

There are also some more songs that could be on this list: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Songs_written_by_Al_Jardine

This is a great idea for a poll by the way!
