1  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Why is Al Jardine known as the 4th voice of the Beach Boys? on: July 05, 2012, 06:48:48 AM
In regards to Al having a diverse voice. Until recently I've always heard the lead on Vega-Tables as Brian. Even though it clearly states in the TSS booklet that it's Al. I just couldn't help but picture it as Brian. Now I hear Al. Same goes for I Know There's An Answer. I never read vocal credits and always thought it was Mike doing the lead throughout. Nope, just on the first verse. So while in the end while he may be the one that sang lead on Help Me Rhonda! His contributions are essential.

From MOJO. Had never seen this before

The Rolling Stones are the 2nd most over-rated band in history. The first is Nirvana

just my opinion

The chorus of Cabin Essence

I see your point. But, do you honestly believe that Kokomo is in the same boat as Surfin U.S.A?
6  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Why No Love For Kokomo ? on: June 15, 2012, 10:58:12 AM
Why no love for 'Kokomo?'

How about that it's incredible cheesy and represents all the bad things about BB? How about that it's incredibly dated. How about the fact that ML can't seem to shut up about it. Oh sure it's a crowd pleaser. I don't believe it's a crowd pleaser because people think it's some great  work of art. It's a crowd pleaser because people remember it as a corny little song that was a hit back in the late 80's. If the song never went to #1 we wouldn't be talking about it today. How about that in every single interview ML just has to mention Kokomo. Usually in the same sentence as all the classics. We all know that Kokomo doesn't belong in the same dimension as the classic BB songs.

Oh, and to those who defend the better aspects of it. Mainly Carl's vocal contributions. Carl Wilson could have sung over the sounds of someone farting into a paper bag and his voice would still be goosebump inducing. Just because he's great on it, doesn't make the song great.

If you want to show that The Beach Boys were more than just a surf and car group as far as albums go those 3 are the way to go.
8  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Rolling Stone: Best BBs Songs on: June 11, 2012, 07:55:54 PM
Dear Beach Boys,

With the recent placing of "Surf's Up" and the #1 and #3 positions at both Mojo and Rolling Stone magazines poll of the greatest ever Beach Boys songs. I think it's about time to introduce the song into the set list. If you have to remove a song I suggest "Kokomo." That's right Mr. Love just let it go. For the sake of all that is right in the world please let it go. We get it, it was a number one hit and it was written without Brian. Good for you. You had your moment in the sun now it's time to move on. Beach Boys fans don't want to hear "Kokomo" Just replace it with "Surf's Up." It's all we ask

Signed

A Fan

Hmmm no mention of the fact that during the sessions Brian refers to what is the verse from BWPS as the chorus.

That part on Smile when someone sings "Geronimo leaps and bounds over the dustbowl"

What does it mean?

That's weird? I can see them. I'll have to upload again after work.

Where?
15  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Best box set you ever got? on: May 13, 2012, 05:21:52 PM
The Smile Session light-up set is far and away the best box set I own. The Beatles in mono is the best non BB set
16  Smiley Smile Stuff / Smile Sessions Box Set (2011) / Re: All things TSS packaging, presentation and booklet etc on: May 13, 2012, 04:53:01 AM
I just received my replacement for my light-up set and all I can say is WOW!!! this is so cool. Here are a few pics









17  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Took the dive bought SS light up box and... on: May 09, 2012, 07:49:53 PM
Yeah, it is pretty cool. I don't know about $700 cool, but cool nonetheless. Which got me thinking. If your going to sell an item and limit it to 100 copies and sell it for a lot of money. You would think to make it a point to makes sure there's nothing wrong with it first right?
18  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Took the dive bought SS light up box and... on: May 09, 2012, 01:58:08 PM
They're gonna send me a new one
19  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Took the dive bought SS light up box and... on: May 06, 2012, 01:43:56 PM
Here's a couple of pics of the box lit up in total darkness plus the signature.

Asking for exchange or refund. Box is torn and light switch broken.
21  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Worst Beach Boy Song on: May 01, 2012, 12:12:57 PM
All of the votes for "Summer of Love" are dead on correct. Yeah there's been album tracks and hard to find tracks that could possibly be worse musically (notice I said possibly worse) but what puts SOL on top as mentioned earlier is that it was put out as a single. Somebody actually thought this would make a hit single. I like to think of it as the Plan 9 From Outer Space of songs. A song so bad that it's hilarious. There are absolutely no redeeming qualities about it whatsoever. Musically, lyrically, vocally everything about it sucks. The video is the icing on the cake too.

Quick review. Show was great. A few things.

1. God Only Knows was incredibly moving. The idea to play to Carl on video is brilliant. No one else should sing that song.
2. I'm sorry to its fans, but they need to drop Kokomo. They could replace it with about 100 different choices.
3. Brian on bass. Yay
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: A bit crap on: April 22, 2012, 06:16:13 PM
Sorry just seems absurd to complain that the Beach Boys are playing their hits. Especially based on one show.
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: A bit crap on: April 22, 2012, 01:47:06 PM
This thread is almost as ridiculous as the one that complained that The Smile Sessions in mono is a disaster for the Beach Boys legacy.
25  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Why would anyone be obsessed/so very much into The Beach Boys? on: April 15, 2012, 02:14:05 PM
If he doesn't get it so be it. There's no sense in trying to convince him. I'm sure there's stuff your dad's into that you don't get either.
