1  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Fantasy Concerts on: March 03, 2013, 06:22:03 AM
I think that I've posted these on here before, and I know that I'm probably going to get a ton of sh*t for this, but I put together these Fantasy Concerts. I know allllllll of the inaccuracies involved with each of these. The dates of the actual songs don't coincide with the set lists. These are simply meant to serve as "what ifs?". I like to play these as just background noise when I'm doing work around the house. It makes it feel like they're each full concerts.

I think the first few bars of "Let Us Go On This Way" is a major "f*** yeah!" moment. The first few notes, followed by the "argh!", and then the synth in the background of "To get t'you baby I went through the wringer". Hell yes.

Late breaking shock news: musicians play concert to earn their income. Film at eleven.

I don't get it. There's nothing inflammatory about the original post, no negative comments about Mike Love's band. Yes, in past years we didn't get a new thread for announcements of specific Mike shows, but I don't take the original post as the beginning of some sort of new flame thread. I don't get the sarcasm.

As shocking as it may be, there may be some fans out there wondering if the full Beach Boys lineup is going to do anything in 2013, so a show booked by Mike in August of next year may (just may) give us a bit of info to work with in guessing at what they may or may not have planned for 2013.

The only thing more predictable lately than any mention of Mike's band playing a gig is AGD following it up with an overly-defensive, snarky comment. I think people who are supportive, or negative, or indifferent as to more Mike/Bruce shows all may have an interest in what's in store for next year.

Agreed.

I don't know why this hasn't been mentioned yet (I have a feeling that a majority of the board doesn't like this song), but I'd personally have to say Make It Good. The opening bars give me the same feeling as the opening bars to Day In The Life Of A Tree. As far as emotionally powerful goes, I'd have to say the ending takes the cake, especially the whole build-up:

All of my life, I haven't known much, All I know is what I feel. And what I feel. And what I feel.
LLLLLLOOOOOOVVVVVEEEEE I'm in love Love Love, ooh

This came on in the car a few weeks ago when my girlfriend and I were going through some difficult times, we both started balling our eyes out during that part of the song.

Other runner-ups: Don't Talk, or She Knows Me.

What's up with "Don't Let Her Know She's An Angel"? I'm not talking about the Sweet Insanity version. I have two versions, both just vocal and piano. One sounds like Brian, and the other one is in a higher voice. Is this someone else or has the pitch been adjusted? When did this song originate?

Anyone? Please and thank you  Grin

Ok, so I'm trying to put BB's songs on my ipod in chronological order, and I need help with these songs that go in between albums. I appreciate the help greatly.

When was "Soulful Old Man Sunshine" recorded?

"Sherry She Needs Me" was recorded in 1976? Correct?

The only songs I have from Adult/Child are "Lines" and "Still I Dream Of It". Going in chronological order, should these songs be placed before Love You, or after?

And finally, "Brian's Back", this was recorded in 1978?

Again, THANK YOU!

When was H.E.L.P. Is On The Way recorded?
17  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / What a transition! on: July 27, 2012, 07:31:39 PM
I've finally figured out what era of the BB's is my absolute favorite. It's that dramatic drop-off between SMiLE and Smiley Smile/Wild Honey. It goes from complex, huge production, high quality songs to raw, stripped down, dark, acoustic songs in what seems like overnight. Smiley Smile, I must say, was the last album of their catalog which I got into. I initially thought of it as SMiLE's ugly offspring; and while I still maintain that thought, I've learned over time to appreciate Smiley Smile for what it is. Also, is it just me or does SMiLE seem much more tame compared to Smiley Smile? I would've loved to have seen the reaction of the people who went out and bought, then came home and played it for the first time.

Also, does anyone have a link to the audio interview where Brian is talking about Wild Honey? I believe he says something along the lines of "We just recorded an R&B album". That quote is quite odd if you think about it, but then again, if you REALLY think about it, it's kind of correct. I think Aren't You Glad, A Thing Or Two, Darlin, and Let The Wind Blow definitely fall under the category of R&B. There's such raw emotions in those songs you know? Gut-punching stuff.

There are many people who, because of age or disability, are not able to stand for the entirety of a concert. Given the BB demographic, I would say this describes a large part of their audience.

I was also at the Boston show and saw a sizable number of people in wheelchairs and with other serious mobility limitations. Would you have kept standing in front of these folks too? How do you know you weren't?

I, personally, prefer to sit so I can actually listen to and concentrate on the music and performance. That is how I show my appreciation.

No, neither of us were standing in front of people with wheelchairs.
21  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Standing Up VS Sitting Down on: June 27, 2012, 09:38:32 PM
I apologize if this has already been a topic at some point (I'm sure it has), but I just wanted to know what other Smiley Smiler's opinions are on standing and sitting during the concerts. My friend and I both attended last night's show in Boston. Each of us went with our own group of friends and had seats in two different sides of the pavilion. BOTH of us encountered some of the most rude and irrational people I have seen in a very long time. It seemed as though everyone in the pavilion was standing for the first 7 songs, until "Please Let Me Wonder", when people slowly started to plop down. My group of friends and I remained standing during the entire show, as well as many other people around us whom we did not know. The same goes for my friend on the other side of the pavilion. As I looked around, it appeared that everyone (including me) who was standing knew all of the lyrics to every song. They were bouncing around and having a great time singing along to Marcella, Cottonfields, Disney Girls, California Saga, Sail On Sailor etc... At one point, this man behind us, out of nowhere, flipped. Very rude. "Hey assholes, you think you could sit the hell down?", he yelled. My friend turned around and said very politely, "No, I'm sorry".  Never mind the fact that the people in front of us were standing as well. My friend on the other side of the pavilion had it a little bit worse. The guy they had to deal with was completely irate, to the point where security had to come over and speak to him.

Here's my theory: If you've been standing up, and you choose to sit down when a certain song comes on, I think it's safe to assume that you have little to no interest in that specific song; therefore you should not be upset if you cannot see because of people standing in front of you.

Again, I'm sure there's no right or wrong answer. It's just a matter of opinion.

Just listened with headphones, and that's not Brian. Brian is singing the lower harmony, he starts to fade in at around 6:50. Listen closely.

As I mentioned in the thread for the second Mohegan Sun show (May 13th), my now ex-girlfriend spent most of the show looking at her phone. She gave me the ever-popular "all the songs sound the same" shtick. However, she was bored to tears when they played their lesser known stuff. I had a copy of the set list with me, and she got pissed off when she saw the amount of songs they were playing. I should've never have shown her that I had the set list in the first place, because for the remainder of the show she kept asking me to take it out of my pocket so she could see how many songs were left. Not to mention we were late (her fault), and we got to our seats by the time they were playing "Hawaii". Luckily, I saw the boys again last night in Boston, and it more than made up for my previous experience in May.  Grin

Months before this, we were riding in the car, "Be Here In The Morning" came on the car stereo. As soon as the first verse kicks in, she goes "Can you please change the song?" OUCH. It's kind of insulting, I'm not exaggerating. Anyone else have an ouch moment like this?

Oh and at one point my girlfriend (who didn't go to the Mohegan show with me) turned to me and said, "Bruce is kind of useless" during one of his many times walking very far away from the mic and pumping up the crowd. I really do wish he would care more about singing than adjusting his mic and clapping his hands.

An entire thread could be made of downer wife/girlfriend remarks on the tour at this point.

I concur!
