Pretty interesting song! Not what I was expecting at all. Reminds me of some of the more 12-string guitar-centric stuff " on Summer Days..."

His voice isn't an autotuned nightmare on this! I'm digging it. I can't wait to throw a tape plugin on this and dirty it up and make it a little closer to mono.

For those having problems playing this in various browsers, here's a direct SoundCloud link that hopefully works:

A cool little bonus track. Kind of like a much better, more original version of "PT Cruiser."

I wouldn't mind an album of this ...

There's a musical quote used during the verse that I haven't placed yet.

According to another article, he apparently just wrote this within the year. Still has it.

I think for perhaps the last time...he has to quit the concert seen and focus on the studio for one more album.

That article is wrong about that unless he's written and recorded two songs by the same name in recent years. It was discussed during NPP and Beck sessions.

I'm not sure on how I feel about the song itself yet, but I love the production and Brian's vocals.

The opening sounds very familiar too.

Wow!
 I like it! When was the last time BW did a fast catchy song in 150 bpm?

A great blend of 'Drive in' and 'Dont hurt my little sister'

really cool

I'll need to hear the actual CD to figure this out, but that's some interesting filter or whatnot on BW's voice. It's not a quadruple tracked effect at all, or the odd NPP sound where the beginnings and ends of words are one voice but the sounds inbetween are choral. It actually seems pretty cool!

It's definitely comped between his voice and someone else's in a few spots, but i prefer that to overcorrecting pitch issues.

I absolutely love it! Cheesy Could this be the first song of the Brian Rock & Roll Album that he's been mentioning for years? Please no remakes, just more of this!

Overall it's pleasant, but....

I remember it originally being talked about with an Al Jardine lead. And by golly I think it woulda raised this song a notch with Al doing the quicker verses with Brian doing his thing on the choruses. I think Brian sounds beautiful on those parts but I feel like the faster verses just aren't in his wheelhouse anymore for new songs. I think it really the Al/Brian effect really woulda worked quite well for this one, kinda like the early Beach Boys Mike/Brian duets. But alas, this is for a Brian Wilson solo career anthology and they wanted more Brian maybe. So, it is what it is.

Yeah, I'm sure that's the case. But this tune wouldn't fit on NPP, either ...

This song COOKS. I friggin' LOVE it. Listening it to the 3rd time in a row!

It's more like the TLOS/Scott Bennett style production, which is such a breath of fresh air compared to Joverproduction Thomas. I do hear few odd vocal processing artifacts, like on the word "burn", but they're minimal.

Please, more more more like this!

This might be my fave new Brian track in a decade.

What everyone else says...Its Great!
Wish Mike was on those verses and wish there was a better drummer/ drum sound, but its way stronger than most of BW's solo work, energy-wise!
