Right now, it's the fade of 'The Like In I Love You'. So simple and spellbinding. The little bit before the second verse is possibly more beautiful, though, with those high strings. I can't stop playing it now.

What about you? What can't you stop playing? What's going over and over in your head? What makes you wake up in the night and think 'Hot damn! What a sweet part', before going back to sleep cursing the genius of the Wilson or other person responsible?

For me, it's "Don't Fight the Sea." Sometimes lately I wake up in the middle of the night with that song stuck in my head in a loop. DFTS has a way of sneaking up on me. Whenever I play Al's album, I have to play DFTS twice. I'd say I'm hooked. Smiley

The moment in "Pet Sounds", around 1:50, where the music swells downward a bit, and right when it concludes, the original rhythm section kicks back in. Something about that just mesmerizes me.

Moments that have kicked my ass in the past:
-The opening instrumental bit of God Only Knows. It makes me think of Christmas.
-When Brian sings "it only makes it worse to liiiiiiiive without it" toward the end of Wouldn't It Be Nice, that's the closest I've ever come to a religious experience.
-Any one of the unbelievable vocal arrangements on Smile.

On a beautiful summer morning when I don't have to go to work and can just enjoy the day, there is nothing more perfect than "Country Air".  The other day, I had "Shortnin' Bread" stuck in my head and drove my kids crazy by singing it for hour upon hour... they wanted to kick my ass!

This summer, whenever I'm listening to my iPod at the beach, I can't get away from the opening of "California Girls" in stereo.  Perfection.

The "da...da da da" part before the vocals kick in at the beginning of GOK.

The "Pied Piper, I Better Get Back In Bed" part in Mount Vernon and Fairway. I can literally listen to it for hours and not get bored.  Grin

(Hi. New guy here. This seemed like a good thread to start with.)

I'm going with 1:41-2:14 of "Good Vibrations," right after the second chorus. Can't help but air-sleighbell there.  LOL

I love the bass during thatr section. Although I can't tell if it's an actual bass guitar or a bass keyboard note.

The fade of "Melt Away". Simple yet complex. I particularly like the mix of the song that appears of the original pressing of the Brian Wilson album which includes a vocal overdub (which I'm sure is NOT Brian but it's pretty nonetheless) that doesn't appear on the remastered edition.

Welcome Austin, hope you enjoy yourself on here!

As for specific musical moment, I have the 'at 25 I turned out the light...' part of Goin' Home from TLOS stuck in my head. Also Shortenin Bread is is my head cos Gon' Home uses the SB riff   Grin

The very underrated 'Winds of Change' ...... the whole song is lavish and sumptuous but *that coda* with the snare drum and those harmonies drives me nuts.

Particularly that 'stereo' remix version that I've heard is out there. Magical.

Just remembered my favorite. The 'AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH" at the end of GV just before the chorus kicks in again. To me, that may be the defining moment for the band.

Stereo version of 'You're So Good To Me' and the bass in :47 - 1:14 of 'Song for Children' PC version (both have been kicking my @$$ for months now).

I think it's impossible to have just one!

When the flutes come in near the end of GOK
'Grand Coulee' section of Cabinessence, without the vocals
'Look/I Ran'
The descending strings at the end of OMP. Why the hell he decided to go in that direction, I'll never know, and I LOVE it.

I discover something new every time I listen to Heroes and Villains; a bit of chorus or new instrumental or something. As well as Don't Talk (Put Your Head on My Shoulder), so haunting yet, so moving. It leaves me speechless every time.
