There is little doubt that there are no greater recordings in the history of mankind than the following...
   Sail On, Sailor
   You Need A Mess of Help to Stand Alone (I'm serious)
   Wouldn't It Be Nice
   Little Bird
   This Whole World

That is all...

Though there are times when I think the version of "Don't ya Just Know It" by Jan Berry and Brian beats them all!

And "Love Is A Woman" (Brian's live version on Saturday Night Live) occasionally is in my head from the moment I arise...

But "Good Vibrations" is better than anything on my prior 35 lists.

As others have said, it's tough to pick only 5...

Clearly you're taking the piss again, OSD, but "All I Wanna Do"?? That's one of the best tracks ever!

Please reconsider. Grin

Cool, Cool Water (yes that is my favorite BB song)
Heroes and Villains
Cabinessence
I'll Bet He's Nice
Your Summer Dream

But like many who have already posted, these rotate in and out with a handful of other songs.  I had a hard time eliminating Surf's Up, When I Grow Up, and All This Is That from the list.

Especially Carl's "cookie monster" lead vocal! One of the most "un-Beach Boys" Beach Boys tracks, but certainly one of the biggest highlights of the CatP album!

Nice list, Marty!

It took half-a-dozen listens back in '72, but "Mess of Help"--as it's impossible for anyone to "don't know it" who's braved my many posts here about it--has been in my Top Five ever since. Other great tracks come and go from that list, but it always remains.

(Still want to hear the full "Beatrice" lyrics before I kick the bucket, however...)

Found these lyrics said to be from "BFB" posted by someone called [deleted]: "she's got some wholes [sic] in her stockings/she do a whole lot of rocking". Would these be the only known lyrics, if that's what they are? And where would [deleted] have found them? Most curious.

A band called The Beach Boys are mostly going to be a fun in the sun-themed group. And that has, is, and will always be just as it should. There needs to be ONE classic band that isn't a pack of endless "artistic" moan. All people wanna do is make The Beach Boys into another Beatles they are less tired of.
And, for anyone who has actually experienced them, surfing and cars carry PLENTY of emotion and life experience. They can carry as much metaphor as any Van Dyke Parks clever epistle.

David Leaf first reported a snippet of "Beatrice" lyrics in The Beach Boys and the California Myth that go a bit beyond that couplet, and which probably explain why Jack Reiley was quick to amend them:

She got a hole in her stockin'
She do a whole lotta rockin'
She do the shake down at Bumbles
She do the Chicano rumble
(presumably: Ba ba ba ba--ba ba ba ba ba <Belief I cried/Ain't no shuck'n'jive>
[It's] Beatrice from Baltimore <I need a mess of help to stand alone>)

The mind does boggle as to where Tandyn and Brian might have taken it from there...  3D
