Late night Tuesday after a show, Clarke's Diner.

I've heard some really surprising Beach Boys related songs in public over the years, but that takes the cake.

A little while back I was in a mom-n-pop record store, and they played the entire first side of Holland, Good Vibrations, and then a cover version of Good Vibrations. LOUD.

In one of my local supermarkets, I tend to hear a lot of BB. In the past year alone I've heard Sail On Sailor, Here Today, Surf's Up (BWPS), and some of the standard hits.

Did they see you spending too much time in their Beach Boys section? An owner at one of the locals around here puts on an Adult/Child boot every time I come in the store.

In a state of reduced consciousness the other night, I found myself drinking tea with Brian Wilson while he was reciting his 'smog' rant....even to the point of saying "Eh, let's play that back..." - not even kidding.

I never really expected to run into Brian Wilson in my sleep  Grin

Anyone else have a dream where any of the Beach Boys were present?
Just the other day actually.  I had a dream that Brian was throwing a chain saw at me.  No sh*t.   LOL  It was like on a string or rubber band -- cuz he'd throw it at me and it would come back to him like a yo-yo, then he'd throw it back at me.  And he was laughing his crazy azz off.  I was freaking out obviously.  Yelling something like "you crazy mtha fkker!!!"

Yeah.  How fked up is that?  Either right before that or right after that, I can't remember -- I stole his "bag."   LOL

The last time I was there, I was checking out and Lazy Lizzie came on. I could not believe he kept it on through that.

This is one of those places that caters to collectors, and I must be the only person that comes in regularly that collects Beach Boys stuff, because he's always super eager to talk to me.

Being at an American college football game and hearing the entire 20/20 version of Our Prayer played over the stadium's PA system in front of 100,000 people during a timeout. It happened to me on September 18th, 2010 in Knoxville, Tennessee home of the Tennessee Volunteer football team. I was a fan of the visiting team (Florida Gators!) and was absolutely astonished that they played the song. Honestly, it was one of the oddest places to hear it because it really had no relevance to the game or setting and it is usually not the type of song or music snippet they play during football games here.

I'm sure the look on my face was priceless. I thought to myself, "oh my God I know this song" after the first few notes and that turned into "this is absolutely unbelievable!" It sounded great, btw, but was absolutely random.
Why was it played?

There was a timeout during the game (stoppage in play) and they had gone to a TV commercial break so there was no play on the field. During that time either the college band plays or they play music over the stadium speakers and they happened to play Our Prayer over the speakers.
it's short enough for a timeout...so is And Your Dreams Come True.  Wink

Don't forget Ding Dang!

Kettleball? Friendly's?

I just don't get these american references........

USA! USA!

I had no idea Friendly's still existed. The Beach Boys version of Rock 'n' Roll Music is the perfect soundtrack, from my Friendly's experiences, actually.

speaking of that song, I'm looking forward to the release of the 'extra verse' version on MIC which will surely be the mix heard in that 1975/76 interview with additional overdubs and fart moog all over. Hope is strong for this song to be listenable again! (single version ain't too bad)

I was just playing with my brother's Xbox. "Kinetic Adventures" and in one of the featured games the background music was the instrumental track to "Our car club" aka "Rabbit's food"

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.

I was in my car a few months ago absentmindedly switching from radio station to station and I stopped when I heard "Gee" on my High School radio station. It was the two-sided Heroes and Villains single, one of the last things I'd ever expected to hear on the radio, let alone my High School's station.

On our way through this "backstage" maze, Bruce joined up with the group and said hello, singing "It Never Rains in Southern California" and joking with some of the older ladies. I'm not sure if they knew he was a Beach Boy or simply an enthusiastic elderly gay gentleman.

I'm just watching a german crime thriller and in quite a dark moment someone played a CD in a car and out comes "Wouldn't it be nice".
I pictured all this & it's indeed very random & qute amusing, considering WIBN is a very optimistic song.

Just the other day actually.  I had a dream that Brian was throwing a chain saw at me.  No sh*t.   LOL  It was like on a string or rubber band -- cuz he'd throw it at me and it would come back to him like a yo-yo, then he'd throw it back at me.  And he was laughing his crazy azz off.  I was freaking out obviously.  Yelling something like "you crazy mtha fkker!!!"
Mr. Bag, your dream is waaay cool! My own dreams are just banal monsters & dwarfs.

I was just playing with my brother's Xbox. "Kinetic Adventures" and in one of the featured games the background music was the instrumental track to "Our car club" aka "Rabbit's food"
Wow, this is terrific. It's my fave hot rod song by The Beach Boys. So another cool story.

I was in a small hill town in Sri Lanka last summer, when 'Rock and Roll Music' came out of a cafe window.  I wasn't sure if it was the Beach Boys' version (far away, lot of background noise) but it sounded like them.  We were staying in a small guesthouse which had some decent speakers and the owner told us we could be in charge of music for the evening.  So we gave Ding Dang and Vegetables as well as some other obscure tracks to the uber-cool travellers hanging out on the terrace.  I didn't hear what they were saying, but Ding Dang raised some surprised laughter.
