There are a lot of terrific candidates, which would you guys select? In terms of songs on which they're the only two with writing credits.

Good Vibrations and I Get Around have to be way up there.

Side two of Today and Summer Days both have a ton of great stuff.

Post-Smile, I love Let The Wind Blow, Do It Again, All I Wanna Do, Cool Cool Water, That Same Song, Let Us Go On This Way, Goin On.

What are your favorites?

My favorite is The Warmth of the Sun.

"No White Flags." - Team Gleason

Well obviously it's Good Vibrations.

This gives me the chance to mention an early?? pressing of GV I once saw for sale without Mike Love listed on the composer credit. We're there many of these?

Oh, holy freakazoid, everyone knows it's "Cassius Love vs. Sonny Wilson."  3D

For an actual singing collaboration (instead of however one attempts to classify the above...), it's "Devoted to You."

"The Warmth of the Sun." For the melody and for Mike's lyrics, which turn a tragedy into something positive.

I've got to go with Good Vibrations and The Warmth of the Sun. The lyrics to Good Vibrations are poetry, and the lyrics to The Warmth of the Sun so perfectly fit the sorrowful, reflective melody.

Endless amounts but you do have to say 'good vibrations'

According to someone who would know.

Seriously, there was a Beach Boys Love You condom?!  Amazing.
