I have mucho love for SOS but I do wish Carl had booked the entire group for a session to do the backing vocals instead of just grabbing whoever was in the studio that day. The obvious single and ideal kick off track for Holland, but it's still the weakest song on the album.

Time was of the essence. The album release had been put back because Reprise wanted a single.

Fair enough but I still wonder why Mike or Al didn't turn up. What could they have been doing that was more important than finishing off what was make or break for their next record getting a release or not?

If you've ever listened to the pet sounds sessions you probably you've probably heard Brian talk about "How To Speak Hip" the comedy album. I recently got it, if you like the Brian's laid back hippie slang you should listen to it, it's pretty funny.

I hate to bump an old topic, but this is a good one.  I just found this today, I apologize if it's already been posted.

so I find this interview with Brian, at

http://www.americansongwriter.com/2009/01/brian-wilson-gods-messenger/

It's full of great Brianisms, Brian's really on top of things and giving good answers to all the questions, bringing up other things, and really into the interview.  The interviewer asks him

How do you manage to balance craftsmanship with pure inspiration?

and Brian replies:

"The two work together. When you’re inspired, you write a lot better than when you’re not inspired. Music is beautiful. Whenever you play music, you feel better. And whenever you write a song, you feel ten times better when you’re done writing it. “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” was one of my most inspired songs. “Ding Dang” is another inspired one. "

SAME INTERVIEW

Interviewer is playing word association

"Surf's Up" ?

Brian: "That was written with Van Dyke Parks in 1966 and it was done on drugs. "

Essential! You never know whether he's putting one on, or means it. In this case, I'd certainly go for option number 1, but...  LOL

I just find it amazing that you never know what he's going to say.  Basically, there's about three things going on.

When you watch Brian talking, you have

1. An expectation of what they're talking about, you're operating in your scheme of things, how you see the subject, what you expect and would say.

2. What Brian LOOKS like.  He often looks disinterested, or he looks like an old man, or whatever.

3. What Brian himself is thinking.  Out of nowhere, after talking about "Wouldn't it Be Nice" (expected) the next thing out of his mouth is about Ding Dang (Not Expected).

It's great entertainment watching or reading an interview with him.  Also you know, sometimes I think or others think "Oh hell, he probably doesn't even remember those songs" but he proves over and over again that not only does he remember most of his songs, but he considers many of them to be on par with his greatest successes.  To Brian, it makes just as much sense to talk to a reporter about "Wouldn't it be Nice" as it does to talk about "Ding Dang".  

Gotta love that guy.  

Like Don said, there's always the possibility too that he has an INCREDIBLY dry sense of humour, like the world has never seen.  So he could be making a comment about "Well, if you want to talk about old songs, lets talk about old songs".  He may be having a laugh on all of us.

That's my understanding. Good example...1980,middle of a serious interview, busts out with "I like food".

Thanks for citing, Ron and AEA -

yes. Although in his defenseless periods, he may have been making really odd remarks - a person who's heavily under the influence, and highly fearful at the same time, and unhygienic, may be so immersed in feelings of 'God I wish I were somewhere else on my own!', that he loses all concentration on what he's actually saying - Brian also must have countless situations where he's on top. I mean, a news hack who's just asking questions a bit predictably, or aimlessly, can count on the totally unexpected, or contrariwise, on the worst of the worst of clichés.

I like that. It makes me laugh so much. One of my all time favourites: his stance on the movie: Norbit.

Press conference discussing Dennis's death and the bands future. 1984

'For me the mourning is over' he said 'As far as I am concerned, nothing is going to hold back the ball of wax' It's still a go'.


and

Man it's just Brian forced to conform to the lame ass culture around him and casting knowing looks from his intelligent eyes to those that are aware that "LOL YEAR I KNOW THIS IS RIDICULOUS BUT JUST DIG IT MAN"

.....One and the same? LOL

Brian's certainly got an offbeat sense of humour, and I think he enjoys confusing people.

One I overheard myself

"Darian, is my sense of humour in your case, your recorder, your rucksack? I've lost my sense of humour and I can't find it.

Can't forget the interview with Zooey Deschanel where at the end Brian goes, "You're a really pretty girl."

Maybe Brian should team up with Zooey for songspiration? She can just sit nearby and be looked at while he writes.

I think Brian and Mike should have a standup comedy show together.

And production aside, I’d 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
