I haven't listened to all of The Beach Boys albums (and I doubt I ever will), but I'd like to make a few comments.

-You need to have Kiss Me, Baby on Today!. Great song.
-I think Good Vibrations needs to be included somewhere. Sure, maybe it doesn't really FIT on Smiley Smile but it should be there so it isn't neglected.
-Darlin' is too good of a track to be left off of Wild Honey. Same for Aren't You Glad.
-Where is This Whole World on Sunflower? Or Add Some Music?

I know the whole "top 3" aspect means certain songs can't make the cut (picking 3 favorites from Pet Sounds is nearly impossible for me) but I would have had a few different choices. Not a bad list on the whole, though.  Smiley

I don't normally do list threads, but I've been thinking about this one since the thread was opened. It's been more difficult than I thought: it was difficult to whittle some albums down to only three tracks ("Today"), whereas with others it was difficult to find three at all! Due to obsessively listening to the Beach Boys in my youth, I find the more, erm, popular material to be damned with overfamiliarity these days. For example, the only track from "Surfin' Safari" I'd really want to listen to is "Cuckoo Clock" (don't laugh), but by sticking to the rule of three tracks, I picked probably the two other most obvious tracks. I've also only just realised that there are only three tracks I ever listen to on "Friends"!

Here's my 2d'orth:

Surfin' Safari: Cuckoo Clock, Surfin', 409
Surfin' USA: Farmer's Daughter, Lana, Lonely Sea
Surfer Girl: Hawaii, Our Car Club, Your Summer Dream
Little Deuce Coupe [not counting duplicates from previous albums]: Ballad of Ole Betsy, Car Crazy Cutie, Custom Machine
Shut Down vol. 2: Fun, Fun, Fun, In The Parking Lot, Pom Pom Play Girl
All Summer Long: We'll Run Away, Drive-In, I Get Around
Today!: Please Let Me Wonder, In The Back Of My Mind, She Knows Me Too Well
Summer Days...: The Girl From New York City, California Girls, Summer Means New Love
Party: Hully Gully, Mountain of Love, Alley Oop
Pet Sounds: Don't Talk..., I'm Waiting For The Day, Pet Sounds
Smiley Smile: Vegetables, Fall Breaks and Back to Winter, Gettin' Hungry
Wild Honey: I'd Love Just Once To See You, Aren't You Glad, A Thing or Two
Friends: Meant For You, Be Here In The Mornin', Busy Doin' Nothin'
20/20: Be With me, All I Want To Do, Time To Get Alone
Sunflower: Slip on Through, This Whole World, It's About Time
Surf's Up: Long Promised Road, Disney Girls (1957), 'Til I Die

While I own the rest of the catalogue, years can pass before parts of it see a turntable or the inside of a CD player, so I'll stop here with one notable exception:
Love You: Good Time,  Johnny Carson, Let Us Go On This Way

Good choices for your Umm, Uhhhhh and Ehhhhhhh's. That wasn't so hard, was it?  They may not be terrific albums, but there good songs on all of them.

It's too bad SIP wasn't released on vinyl.  Then I could pick Hot Fun, the end groove on side one, and the end groove on side two.

I definitely agree w/ Mike's Beard that picking three from 20/20 was the hardest. Friends was a tough one for me too (does Breakaway count?).

It is on vinyl but rare. Mine is a unexpectedly great Koren pressing. I think there may have been one from Australia as well.

I'm stopping at Love You because I've honestly never listened to any of The Beach Boys' albums after 1977 completely, I don't think...

1962    Surfin' Safari: [Ugh... what a bad album. I never listen to it, but since I have to pick I'd go with...] "Country Fair", "409", and "The Shift"
1963    Surfin' USA: title track, "Farmer's Daughter", "Lana"
1963    Surfer Girl: title track, "In My Room", "Hawaii"
1963    Little Deuce Coupe: title track, "Car Crazy Cutie", "No-Go Showboat"
1964    Shut Down Volume 2: "Fun, Fun, Fun", "Don't Worry Baby", "The Warmth Of The Sun"
1964    All Summer Long: "I Get Around", "Little Honda", "Don't Back Down" [This one was tough because now their albums are getting to be, frankly, actually worth listening to!]
1964    The Beach Boys' Christmas Album: "Merry Christmas, Baby", "Christmas Day", "Blue Christmas"
1965    The Beach Boys Today!: "Please Let Me Wonder", "She Knows Me Too Well", "In The Back Of My Mind"
1965    Summer Days (and Summer Nights!!): "California Girls", "Let Him Run Wild", "You're So Good To Me"
1965    Beach Boys' Party!: "Tell Me Why" [better than the original!], "Papa-Oom-Mow-Mow" [dig Brian letting go on the chorus; the whole thing just rocks], "There's No Other (Like My Baby)"
1966    Pet Sounds: [This one will be a motherfucker!] "Wouldn't It Be Nice", "You Still Believe In Me", "God Only Knows" [This is definitely a 'mood album' for me, so my favourite tracks change accordingly...]
1967    Smiley Smile: [I'm cheating a bit here by excluding the two obvious choices: "Heroes And Villains" and "Good Vibrations" -- it's more fun without them anyway!] "She's Goin' Bald", "Little Pad", "With Me Tonight"
1967    Wild Honey: "Aren't You Glad?", "I'd Love Just Once To See You", "Let The Wind Blow"
1968    Friends: title track, "Little Bird", "Busy Doin' Nothin'"
1969    20/20: "Be With Me", "Time To Get Alone", "Our Prayer"
1970    Sunflower: "This Whole World", "Forever", "Cool, Cool Water"
1971    Surf's Up: "Take A Load Off Your Feet", "A Day In The Life Of A Tree", "'Til I Die"
1972    Carl and the Passions ``So Tough``: "...Mess Of Help...", "Marcella", "All This Is That"
1973    Holland: "Steamboat", "Big Sur", "Trader"
1976    15 Big Ones: "Had To Phone Ya", "Palisades Park", "Back Home"
1977    Love You: [This one is hella hard for me!] "Mona", "I'll Be He's Nice", "Airplane"

Of course, these will probably not hold up too well when I see this list tomorrow!

great lists people!

I enjoy seeing what other people like on all their albums instead of just favorites period. I chose three songs because as someone said some albums it was hard for me to pick 3 let alone 5.

I agree with drbeachboy in saying that some albums are pretty bad, but there is at least one song I could listen to from each album. SIP is tough but I think Lahaina Aloha is a great song with great vocals from carl.

I can't believe people picking 'Be True to Your School' as one of their favourites, I find it to be on of the worst tracks they have in their early portfolio  Roll Eyes
To each their own, I guess Wink

Making that list, it really showed how strong my top three songs from Carl and the Passions "So Tough" are. Cuddle Up is my favorite Dennis song, Marcella is a great 70s Beach Boys rock song and Hold On Dear Brother is one of my favorite 70s country songs period.

All three are very underrated songs.

I'm a sucker for verses, and I love the Be True to Your School verses, especially the "on Friday we'll be jacked up on the football game" verse.
