I've just released a new video to YouTube for the song 'Take A Load Off Your Feet' to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the 'Surf's Up' album which was just yesterday. I hope you'll all check it out.

Take A Load Off Your Feet:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SlNngDXPdp8

While making this video I noticed a couple of interesting errors in the original album's lyric sheet. I wonder if someone who has the new box set could tell me if they've been fixed.

First, there's "Pete knows all the treacherous blows"  which should be "treacherous foes".

Second, there's "And dusty old saunas too" which should be be "And does the yogasanas too".  I learned that yogasana is simply another way to describe a yoga pose. It seems to be a shortened form of yoga asanas (yoga poses).
Now the lyric actually makes sense, doesn't it?

'sweet,   sweet are your feet' ??
I gave up on that lyric. It does sound like "sweet are your feet", but I couldn't figure what the preceding word is other that "Be" or "These", so I just went with "These feet are your feet". I take that line to mean that you must take ownership for their care, and by extension, ownership for your own health and well-being. There's even the earlier line in the song "You better take care of your life 'cause nobody else will." that has that same message.

Always a pleasure to watch your videos. And a nice idea to use Bigfoot.

a diseased bunch of mo'fos if there ever was one… their beauty is so awesome that listening to them at their best is like being in some vast dream cathedral decorated with a thousand gleaming American pop culture icons.

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.
