On "Meet Me in My Dreams Tonight," Brian sounds OK on the chorus, but his singing on the verses is just really whiny.

I know they aren't technically his best vocals, but i really like his voice circa '76-'77. Chapel of Love, Back Home, Solar System...there is just something so pure and charming about them. (To my ears anyways).

Least Teardrops On My Bed/Drip Drop has cocaine induced excitement and enthusiasm behind it. Grin Skatetown USA is bad vocal, with those weird lyrics that have Mike singing like he was a teenager again in the 1960s.

And production aside, Id so much rather hear a 14 year old David Marks shred some guitar on Chug-a-lug than hear a 51 year old Mike Love sing about bangin some chick in a swimming pool.-rab2591

That's what I said. "Teardrops On My Bed", a.k.a. "Drip Drop". But you probably knew that.  Smiley

I hope its good, good, good, good vibrations, yeah!!

Breaking down awful late 1970s unreleased Beach Boys songs so much fun. LOL But i so want to hear the "in the back of my mind" where Brian goes between his classic voice and gruff voice.

I don't think "Meet Me In My Dreams Tonight" fits into the Worst Vocal category. Not at all. Even the unreleased  version of that is great.

even though i like the song I would have to say "let's put our hearts together" just because it's supposed to be a ballad.."love is a woman" is similar as well,personally I htink he should have used carl fpr the ballad songs on the album or maybe AL,"solor system" is okay IMO just because it sounds more like a Burt Bacharach (scratchy voice) type song and is not supposed to be a ballad..so yeah his worst vocals IMO are on "love You" even though musically I think it's a great album..

Love You is so good BECAUSE of the bad vocals. I love "Let's Put Our Hearts Together", but if it was recorded 10 years earlier... it would be pretty boring. It's probably Marilyn's worst vocal too.

Brian performing Darlin circa 1995. Apparently one of his first performances with The Wondermints.

You know Brian's voice doesn't sound great here, but he does sound pretty spirited and on top of it.  He sounds like he's "in the moment" rather than going through the motions.  If all his latter-day performances had that quality it wouldn't be a bad thing.

From what I understand, there's more, but the reason that's the only performance out...well....apparently that's the BEST of the performances. Sad

Pretty much all of Brian's vocals on BB85 were bad.

I like his voice on "I'm Beggin' You Please" better than "Male Ego".

Hey does anybody remember that version of "Don't Worry Baby" from 1995 where Brian sang the lead live in Las Vegas? He did it in the original key if I can remember. Anybody know if that is floating around the interwebs anywhere? Possibly? Maybe?

He sounds fine on "Male Ego", to me. A bit over the top, but agayn, there's too much energy and charm there for me to think of it as bad.

He sounded worst in the early/mid 90s to me. I Just Wasn't Made For These Times... *shudders*

I agree on IJWMFTT.  As mentioned earlier, Let the Wind Blow is particularly bad, and I think Warmth of the Sun, too. On that album Brian's voice sounds the thinnest I've ever heard it, not to mention strained and pitchy. And on some of those songs he sounds even older than he does now.

Love is a Woman is really bad, too, but in general I don't mind Brian's gruff late '70s to very early '80s vocals because they had soulfulness like phirnis was saying.

Now that's funny.  Also, Brian was eating sandwiches in his tent.

He did it in about 2005, too, but it was in Italy or something.  One of those countries other than this one. 

Sounded pretty good, all things considered.  Original Key!
