I’m curious what the individual band member’s favorite Beach Boys songs are? I’ve read that Dennis loved Surfer Girl and Let Him Run Wild the most. Also curious what Murry and Audree’s favorite Beach Boys songs were?

Brian has singled out California Girls on several occasions. In The Beach Boys Concert album, Carl mentions Caroline No as one of his favorites Brian’s tunes.

Brian has also singled out Surfer Girl on several occasions, as well as God Only Knows. Other than that he's mentioned Marcella and Darlin' as favorites over the years.

Mike I think might be a big fan of Kokomo, but that's only a guess.

I think there's an interview from C50 where each member is asked while all together. I remember Brian saying "California Girls" and Bruce saying "The Warmth of The Sun". I don't remember if every member actually got to answer the question.

IIRC Dennis' said one of his favorite fade-outs on a Beach Boys song was "Let him run wild".
I think Mike usually mentions "Good Vibrations".
Brian mostly goes with "California Girls", "Good Vibrations" or "God only knows". He released a CD compilation along that topic btw (Classics: Selected by Brian Wilson).

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Alan has mentioned California Girls as one of his favorites, saying it was the perfect combination of commerciality and musical experimentation, or words to that effect.

Makes sense, there's the similar melody on his own California Saga (California) composition, maybe a tribute to his love of Brian's 1965 classic.

Also just read some of Brian's proudest Beach Boys works, including Surfs Up, Do It Again and Sail On Sailor.
