An honest mistake, I'm sure Steve will agree.

Gotta love insurance companies. You pay them your hard earned money for years and then the one time you actually need their "service" they screw you over. Similar thing happened to a friend who was hit by a drunk motorcyclist. Blue Cross wanted to send him somewhere to die instead of paying the 2 million+ dollars for hospital stays and rehabilitation. Over two years later and they're still fighting them....

Hope everything has been and continues to work out for you.  Smiley

Going to a Minor League baseball game and finding out the promotion theme for game was "christmas in July". They then played "Little Saint Nick" over the PA system. If it was me in charge of song selection, I would of played the SOT of "christmas day", with Brian's salty language comments on that song.

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.

Its like a trivia question at my work of who my fav band is. People just can't believe it.

One time, a co worker thought my cd labeled as "Beach Boys rarities" was filled with porn, and the label was just a cover up.

Little did he know, it was true.  Evil

I think a lot of people (and this is more true the further they are removed from youth culture) don't even have a favorite band or performer because music is not something they value that much. It's just something that's there in the background. For most of these folks, if the musician is not perceived as currently cool or happening, there's no point in listening. Others will stick to their initially perceived notions as to what's acceptably cool and what isn't regardless of how many decades pass.

The Beach Boys are somewhat unique in that their fans are often split into factions instead of being united. Almost everyone has heard of this band, but most are really only familiar with the surfing hits image and the largest contingent of actual fans probably see Beach Boys music as being akin to Jimmy Buffet's in that it's fun music to listen to at a summer party or concert. Another faction is more interested in the artistry and production of the more sophisticated material from the golden era of '66 / '67. A slightly smaller faction are into the post-SMILEY SMILE material or appreciate what Dennis did on his own. Of course, there are fans who like it all, but I think the audience is divided a lot more than, say, Beatles fans (is there a large contingent of mop-top fans who really only know "I Want To Hold Your Hand" and "She Loves You" and are not that into "A Day In The Life" or "Strawberry Fields Forever"?).

Those who are not very serious about music will be the ones to roll their eyes at your interest in the Beach Boys. Those who love and know music will understand (they may still dislike the Beach Boys, but they wouldn't see the band as irrelevant to the growth of popular music).

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.

On my first trip via Southwest to California in May, as we landed at LAX, "California Girls" started playing on the PA system on the plane. It was... pretty great.

Dean Martin - who would become Carl's father-in-law - as member of a surf band. And they even play a song the Beach Boys would record themselves. Coincidence ? Probably yes...

The seats were,in fact, down front but so far over to the left that you couldn't see anything. Things were even more complicated when a local drunk who had been sitting in Al's lousy seats began to act up. Al ended up packing up latest wife and 2 little Al's and went off to find a better seat. He complained to the ushers as well using the "I'm Al Jardine of the BB's" line. I must admit the seats blew and the drunk was an ass. Grin

In a way, it's kind of good to see that he used that line. Jardine seems so utterly and completely unaffected by the enormous fame he has had, it is startling. It's quite impressive how down-to-earth he is. You have to wonder how he processed some of the craziness that surrounded him.
