It would seem Andrew is only allowed to talk about the album in any kind of depth over there. Is he getting compensated somehow?  LOL

Love revival... Oh my... Insert bonus track of your own choice...

Endless love
Love will keep us together
All you need is love
Love is all around
Prisoner of love
A world without love
Power of love
Silly love songs

Have writing credits been posted for Pacific Coast Highway yet?

Just came across a John Phillips song with the same title. Maybe AGD can confirm if they're the same lyrics?

Rollin' along Pacific Coast Highway -
Bummin' along to my radio.
Saw a blond hitchin' my way;
Rolled up and said "How far do you wanna go?"
She'd been hummin', thumbin', hitchin' and wishin'
For a good day on Pacific Coast Highway.
Looked in at me; and when I could see her,
She seemed to be somebody I ought to know.
Opened the door; sat down beside me.
Then with a roar, we started to roll.
She'd been hummin', thumbin', hitchin' and wishin'
For a good day on Pacific Coast Highway.
Looked like a swan, but brown as Chuck Berry -
A summer's dawn, yeah, light as a fairy.
We got to town; she said her name was Mary.
She'd been hit, she'd been whipped,
She'd been hummin', she's been bummin' all her life.
(On the highway - On and on)
(On the highway - On and on)

Probably a coincidenceÖ  apologies if this has been mentioned before.

There is also a Burt Bacharach song by the same name, although there are no lyrics for it to my knowledge.

Anyone else curious about the so-called "eclectic" mix of greatest hits on the QVC bonus disc?  I'm wondering if it will be the same disc as the Zinepak.

I put my foot down a couple years ago and refused to buy any of the greatest hits albums that only have a dozen or so songs, because I just couldn't think of a good reason to buy any of them when I already have everyone of those songs multiple times. 


I also have to put my foot down about ordering from QVC.  I just can't do it.


I may actually be afraid though that I'll get hooked like all those people on Hoarders I see that order so much stuff from QVC that they can no longer open their front door.

How about these lyrics of this Courtney Love song? Is this the same as The Beach Boys' Pacific Coast Highway?

I knew a boy, he came from the sea
He was the only boy who ever knew the truth about me

Iím overwhelmed and undersexed
Oh baby what did you expect?
Iím over rod and so disgraced
And too ashamed to show my face

And theyíre coming to take me away
What I want I will never have
Iím on the Pacific Coast Highway
With your gun in my hands

Apparently, "From Here To Back Again" is as good as "Midnights Another Day"
With beach boys vocals...

For years, people have said that Brian's solo records would be improved with the Beach Boys' voices. Against all expectations, it seems like the Beach Boys album we're getting is essentially a BW solo project (with a couple of ML lyrics and one ML-composed song), featuring the group's vocals.

In a way, this is amazing. It's something Carl wouldn't allow back in the mid-90s. But it's heartening to see that the group has basically allowed BW free reign in the studio. It doesn't guarantee a good album, but it makes it more likely than a hodgepodge of tracks written by everyone in the group.

That being said, if they want to do a followup, working more collaboratively would be a great way to go. I'd love to hear BW collabs with Al again, or even Dave! That would take some serious effort and time, though. It's good that for this project, when they had a tight schedule, that they basically took a BW solo project and put their voices on it. Some of the best BB albums are like that!

I guess I just don't get it, but I don't understand all the love for "Midnight's Another Day" or TLOS as a whole. Especially "Midnight's..."

I just think, like most of the rest of the album is just Scott Bennett writing "confessional" lyrics for Brian and just trying to write something like "'Til I Die."  This was something Brian apparently wrote as an up-tempo thing, and Scott apparently decided they should slow it down and make it a slower thing. It just seems to be indicative of what we don't want to happen with Brian (i.e. people messing with his creations to better suit what their image of him should be. The rest of the music on the album, besides "Southern California" seems good, but honestly, the only good lyrics seem to come from "Good Kind of Love" (written by just Brian) and "Live Let Live" (written by Brian and Van Dyke), whereas the rest just seem like it trying to be a thing about Brian's "story", which I don't think Brian honestly wants.

So what I'm saying, is I hope the new Beach Boys album is good, and I hope "From There To Back Again" is as good as everybody says. I just hope the album is what Brian and the boys really want, and not what they think others want.

For years, people have said that Brian's solo records would be improved with the Beach Boys' voices. Against all expectations, it seems like the Beach Boys album we're getting is essentially a BW solo project (with a couple of ML lyrics and one ML-composed song), featuring the group's vocals.

Some of the best BB albums are like that!

I sure hope they do indeed do a followup, and it would be cool if Brian worked with Al on some material, or even if they ended up putting out that thing that Mike wanted to work on with Dave. I think its great that this album seems to be Brian-centric, which is probably what most of us wanted, but I wouldn't mind something that had more creative from the other guys too.

...To be fair, the other boys have said the record label got to choose which songs would make the album.  Capitol may well have consciously decided to make it Brian-centric...  or rather, Brian-and-Mike-centric, since presumably Mike is doing lyrics for some of these new Brian numbers.  If they're taking the angle of "the team that brought you Good Vibrations, writing together again for the first time in decades", fair enough...
