You mean join in? OK.

I voted for the much-maligned "Be Still", arguably my favourite song on Friends...

This was super hard. I love love love so many of those songs.

I almost picked Meant For You, but instead I picked Walk On By, just because of how it just leaves me wanting more, every time.

Honourable mentions would be:

Ding Dang
Lonely Days
Mama Says
Whistle In
You’re Welcome

Of those listed, it's either AYDCT or Our Prayer. I went with Our Prayer because there's something mysterious and magical about it. For me, it's the perfect intro to Smile. It really sets the mood and I'm always in awe of it.

Walk On By for me.... just incredible for what it is, and it's a shame that it was never completed.

One short song that isn't on the list is a favorite.
The other BBs got upset about all the time Brian was spending on this song but I really like what I heard of Old Man River

TWW doesn't count - it's full-fleshed & not exactly too short yet. The songs listed could be described as underdeveloped.

I protest! "Be Still" is extremely developed. Why it's getting no love is quite beyond me.Thud

I almost picked Think About the Days because it's such a great moment when you first hear those voices at the beginning of TWGMTR, but I'm going with Our Prayer

I picked Our Prayer, which I think is an absolute masterpiece, simply gorgeous. Even knowing they were a great pop vocal group, the first time I heard it my appreciation for Brian as a composer/arranger and the group as singers really rose.

I like quite a few of these though.

Obviously Ding Dang is the best short Beach Boys song.
