Never mind the autotune for now...DO IT! DO IT! DO IT! Oh, FEELS GOOD!

What the serious f*** is this?

Did I wake up in 1997 after drinking the latest reissue of Zima clear malt?

Protect that brand.

Haha, I was just about to say the same thing. Sounds like Stamos to me. Just what the song always needed, huh? Maybe someone on the other side of him was telling somebody not to drive because they were too drunk. "Do it, do it! Yeah! HUnh!"

Anyway who really gives a sh*t. It'll be forgotten in 2 weeks along with NASCAR and Santa's Going To Do Some Blow.

Just keep repeating to yourself SUNSHINE TOMORROW. SUNSHINE TOMORROW. SUNSHINE TOMORROW. There. Better.

It is sad that Mike must just throw his hands up and go, 'sure' at any opportunity. I mean who is this for? Is this......is this for us?! Does he think we want this? Does he think a super casual fan will go 'hey, I love that one Beach Boys song 'Do It Again'' and will go on Spotify and THIS will be the version they listen to? Do It Again...and Again....And Again...And....hey, isn't doing this and expecting different results the dictionary definition of insanity? Sweet insanity.

f*** me this is awful. I'm actually listening. Ugh. Lordy. Beautiful new archival release out showcasing TBB as a band to be taken seriously and this steaming sweaty thrice regurgitated turd has to be laid over the top of it.

Mike, it's time for a bit of an intervention mate. Wearing your own band's merch is naff enough but when it comes to solo....? You look like your mam was scared one of the school bullies would nick your hat so she stitched your name into it and got a bit carried away cause of her needlepoint class.

Here's a bit of a poser for everyone - what would it take for Mike Love to accept that the Beach Boys fanbase don't actually like John Stamos. At all? He's barely even famous anymore. At this point it'd be like if Paul McCartney wheeled out Tony Danza and expected a reception that would bring the roof in while he let him sing lead on one of George's cuts.

If this were not a serious, legit "release", I'd hear it and think someone was doing a parody and having a laugh.

I agree so much about the Sunshine Tomorrow release bringing so much positive attention to the band's *music*, I listened at least 4 times through the set in entirety over the past few days because it's so uplifting and inspiring to hear that music, then Mike drops this sh*t on what someone must think is a fanbase who will buy it or even accept it? It's beyond surreal.

Name one legacy artist with the status and accomplishments of The Beach Boys (artistically and commercially), those in their peer group in the upper echelon of 20th Century rock music, who would piggyback something like this remake atop an archival release that spotlights the musical legacy like Sunshine Tomorrow.

Name one. I can't.

Imagine if all of the boys were alive but that bit beyond performing anymore. You put out something like Sunshine Tomorrow then along comes your cousin who apparently has a scat fetish and a viscerally violent reaction to quality music.

I actually like Mike but bloody hell does he make it hard to sometimes. You can settle a lot of your differences with him as a fan by thinking 'well, he's the one with the commercial head, he's the one who courts hits and popularity' but I mean, who is this going to be a hit with? Senile dementia patients who've forgotten they already have a dozen versions of the song they've bought in recent years and who's hearing is failing so they keep accepting shittier and shittier versions of it?

Im usually pretty quick to defend Mike, but this is some kind of awful.

Silver lining.  Its the best song Ive ever heard Mark McGrath on.

Well, I was having an outstanding vacation until I heard about this manure. I always said the surfboard scene in the Summer of Love video was the nadir of the Beach Boys career, but this takes the cake. What a total humiliation--I'm embarrassed. And don't get me started on that hat.

This. So much of this forever and ever. The pained cry of the music fan to the musician. You know this is bollocks. Why. Why. WHY?!

This is the audio equivalent of sticking your hand in a blender and setting it to puree.  I'd rather dip myself in honey and roll around in a fire ant bed than ever listen to this garbage again.  Wow...there are no words. Well, I can think of several million but none of them are very nice. Beethoven's ghost just  covered his ears.  Unless this a comedy track , in which case this was much funnier than the pickle brothers.

Don't ever do it again.  Just...don't.  Protect the damn brand

Interesting that this single is licensed to BMG Rights Management instead of issued straight through Meleco. Perhaps a sign that Mike’s new solo album has a distribution deal?

Okay, thanks, EN. I'm not on Spotify but that's my problem... 

And you're involved with the Samaritans? Or is that a swipe at Mike's single?!

It was a joke at the quality of the single. Ill-conceived and a bit tasteless that (depression sufferer myself, being a bit glib), I apologise.

Anyway JK, it's also on Deezer if you have access to that or in case you've not used Spotify, you can just log right in with your Facebook details if you have some and stream away. No money or card details needed, worst you'll have to do is listen to an advert first. It'd be step 1: log in to spotify.com through facebook, step 2: scroll to the bottom of the page and click on web player under where it says Useful Links and step 3: type Mike Love Do It Again into the search bar and you should be greeted with the disconcerting baseball-capped visage of the man himself.

Fair play, EN. Been there...

I have no Facebook details (no life). Thanks anyway.

But looking at all the outraged comments, it doesn't look like I'm missing an awful lot. In fact I may even be in an enviable position. Grin

Wait. What? Why? They JUST did Do It Again when the BBs reunited. Does Mike have an original idea in his head, ever? Every time Mike re-emerges into the market, it's Do It Again, because he's doing it again. Clever.

This is the guy who has spent years convinced that if he and Brian just got into a room, they'd make a great hit. And yet, he keeps proving that he's out of ideas. He couldn't have tried to come up with something new?

Also, Mark McGrath hasn't had a hit in 20 years. I don't measure the quality of someone's output based on hits, but McGrath isn't exactly some wonderful underground musician either.
