We are making a compilation of songs with sun or  sunshine, in the title or featureded prominently in the lyrics.

For example,  Warmth of the Sun or My Girl would fit into this mix.  We will also include such nuggetts as Walkin on Sunshine, Hre Comes the Sun, I Can See Clearly Now, and Do it Again.

I call upon the vast knowledge base of Smiley Smilers for assistance with this.   Smiley Smiley

We're looking forward to seeing your suggestions.

I kinda consider Up Up and Away by 5th Dimension a sunshine like song.
-Come to the Sunshine (Van Dyke Parks)
-part of the Beatles' Rain ("when the sun shines, they slip into the shade")

BB/BW songs I can think of:
obviously: Sunshine (KTSA) and Sunshine (Imagination)
It's Ok
California
Soulful Old Man Sunshine

"in this online beach boy community, I've found that you're either correct or corrected. Which in my mind is all in good fun to show ones knowledge of their favorite band."- punkinhead

Do you just want BB related songs?  If not "The Sun" by the Flaming Lips is great.

Sloan's Sunflower Sunflower is great, recently saw it on ebay with a promotional picture sleeve; went for an outrageous amount of money

- Rainbow People by The Fraternal Order Of The All (= Andrew Gold and Graham Gouldman); anybody knows their fantastic 60s style album "Greetings From Planet Love" ? nearly as good as the Dukes Of Stratosphear (=XTC) on "Psonic Psunspot" or "25 O'clock"

Good news for PF Sloan fans as Ace Records in the UK is reissuing his first two albums and non-album single cuts (including Sunflower, Sunflower)

Scheduled for a May release it will be entitled `PF Sloan: Here's Where I Belong – The Best of the Dunhill Years 1965-67'.
 
The running order will be as follows:
 
Sins Of A Family
Take Me For What I'm Worth
What Exactly's The Matter With Me
I'd Have To Be Out Of My Mind
Eve Of Destruction
This Mornin'
I Get Out Of Breath
This Is What I Was Made For
Ain't No Way I'm Gonna Change My Mind
All The Things I Do For You, Baby
Goes To Show (Just How Wrong You Can Be)
What Am I Doing Here With You
From A Distance
The Man Behind The Red Balloon
Let Me Be
Here's Where You Belong
This Precious Time
Halloween Mary
I Found A Girl
On Top Of A Fence
Lollipop Train (You Never Had It So Good)
Upon A Painted Ocean
City Women
A Melody For You
Sunflower, Sunflower
Karma (Study In Divinations) /
I Can't Help But Wonder, Elizabeth
 
So that's all of the first LP, most of the second (the missing tracks are When The Wind Changes, Patterns Seg.4) and all five of the non-LP 45 tracks. I don't suppose there will many mourners for Patterns – perhaps a few more for When the Wind, but although it's a shame to lose any of Phil's work something had to go in order to fit into the CD format. Rest assured that those that went did so with Phil's full agreement.   3D

Here's one that popped in my head when I read the title, I don't think anybody else mentioned it.  Great song.

"Lazy Day" by Spanky And Our Gang

Blue sky, sunshine, what a day to take a walk in the park
Ice cream, daydream till the sky becomes a blanket of stars
What a day for pickin' daisies, and lots of red balloons
And what a day for holdin' hands and bein' with you

Got this playing in my head the whole day, although I don't really like that song.

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.

- Lester Bangs on The Beach Boys


PRO SHOT BEACH BOYS CONCERTS - LIST


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.
