Im Picking Up Good Good Good Good Vibrations GIF by The Beach Boys


If you’re a “Kokomo” hater, look up the parody “Camel Toe” by Bob & Tom. That should at least amuse you.

Well, I for one will not be watching that!

Good to see discussion on my favorite band ever.

Some awesome BBs songs that fly under most people’s radar:

Ballad of Ole Betsy
Spirit of America
All I Wanna Do
Please Let Me Wonder
Only With You
She Believes In Love Again
Somewhere Near Japan
California Feelin’

AH! I just noticed Please Let Me Wonder was not on my list. Fixed.

God only knows and Good vibrations for me.

The Beach Boys were my first concert. No Mike Love but thankfully Brian Wilson was there.


Anything off Pet Sounds. Sloop John B was my dad’s favorite BB song and makes me think of him so that one is probably #1.


Don’t worry baby
Good vibrations
You’re so good to me
Do you wanna dance


Surf City
Dead Man’s Curve
Sidewalk Surfin’

You jest but Surf City was written by Brian and he also does the falsetto in Dead Man’s Curve.

Brian’s dad was suuuuuper pissed at him for giving Surf City to Jan and Dean.

“Dead Man’s Curve” was Jan & Dean.

LOL he is trolling. All those tracks are Jan and Dean.

beach Boys are probably my favorite old-school band. more tha the stones, more than the Beatles.

so many of those songs from that era sound both older than time and brand new

Never Learn Not to Love (via C.Manson)

I like a lot of their stuff. Probably listened to sounds of summer 100x a few years ago. and have also been down the smile rabbit hole a time or two. But the three I could listen to over and over again are

God only knows
