The very same, and she's a great person. Not at all a dumb question.

Yeah, she's a dear, which makes it all the more infuriating that Nick Bent did a complete character assassination on her in his shitload of a book.

Thanks for responding, guys.

I actually came across her old posts right after I posted the question, one in which she mentioned being an astrologer. Shame people've tried to make her out to be a bad person-- she had a lot of good thing to say on this board (including in the Love & Mercy thread!)

Thanks.  Is there anyway I can get around that?  It seems like there are endless videos out there that should be blocked by someone, but aren't.

While listening to the Hallmark BB Songs from Here and Back...I got to thinking, what's everyone's favorite version of the  Spirit of Rock and Roll?

The one with Dylan.

To be honest, I don't like the song at all. It's a thing of its time.

The Dylan one. So corny, but I kinda like it (and feel deep guilt because of that).

Any version BUT the Hallmark version...I'd rank near the bottom of BW songs ever, just slightly above the hideous Speed Turtle.

I have a copy of the complete live (mouthed) version from the 25th Anniversary special. That is still my favorite. I too rank the Hallmark version at the bottom.

So i was just reading an interview with David Marks from the December 1998 issue pf ESQ and while he was discussing Murry's writing of Two Step Side Step, he mentioned that Murry "got ripped off when he wrote the Tennessee Waltz and else got credit for it." That was from ESQ VOL 12, Number 1, Issue No. 45, 12/1998.

So is this the Tennessee Waltz we all know and love as a country standard?
Has this story been revealed anywhere else? Ive honestly never heard that before.
If its true, it definitely makes Brian's recording of TW with Spring seem a little more sincere.

  The tempo, the off-key opening, the arrangement, Brian's vocals. Other than that, it's not half tepid.

In Ian MacDonald's book 'Revolution in the Head' he claims that The Beatles deliberately avoided fade-out endings (especially on their early records). However, when thinking about endings I realised that 'Our Prayer' and 'Girl Don't Tell Me' were the only BB songs I could immediately think of that don't fade out, any reason why Brian/the band used Fade-Outs so often?

Sorry, I know it's a pretty off the wall question

Off the Wall questions and others like this are what this thread is all about! I love reading everyone's questions, however big or little or detailed or vague. Bring em on!

But to answer your question, I have no idea. 😉

I have a question about the late 70s Mike Love song Trisha.....did Mike just listen to Sherry She Needs Me (using it as a direct influence) or was it just merely a coincidence that the song sounded exactly like the former?

Furthermore, was Trisha recorded for a solo album (First/Country Love? Proposed for Celebration?) Beach Boy's project? Are there any other familiar voices on the song?

I'm pretty sure Carl is on Trisha. Same with Brian's Back.

On our way through this "backstage" maze, Bruce joined up with the group and said hello, singing "It Never Rains in Southern California" and joking with some of the older ladies. I'm not sure if they knew he was a Beach Boy or simply an enthusiastic elderly gay gentleman.

It probably has a lot to do with how Brian tends to end songs by resting between two or three chords. He is the kind of guy who can spend hours at a piano listening to just a chord because of how it feels. That habit just happened to find itself in the compositions. Only speculating.

Brian nearly always let takes "break down" (both instrumentally and vocally) and never seemed to have any desire for the group or the studio musicians he worked with to create a cold ending.

IMO Girl Don't Tell Me is a nod to The Beatles. It is a very slight musical rewrite of Ticket To Ride and one of the few BB songs (besides the Party! album) to feature an acoustic guitar, overall the production is very Beatley.  The cold ending was probably deliberately done to sound more like a Beatles song.

ThisWholeWorld's "fades" question took me back 38 years to when I started listening to the Beach Boys. The fades added an element of mystery to many of the songs, as I was left wondering what the song did after it had faded away on the disc. Especially tracks like California Girls - in some alternate universe, was Hal Blaine still finding an infinite number of ways to delver those last repetitive bars? Beyond the fade, did the song continue for another few verses that we'd never get to hear? In a way the SoT session boots answered that and at the same time spoiled the mystery element, with the exception of Heroes, which apparently did go on eternally!

There's not many, but these sprung to mind:
I Went To Sleep. A Young Man Is Gone. Wonderful. Our Sweet Love. Don't Go Near The Water. California. Roller Skating Child. Lady Lynda. Be Here In The Morning. Life Is For The Living.
