I like my songs a little bit newer. And my girls a little bit older.

I didn't think it was even remotely possible for anyone to get this wrong, but it's NECK AND BAD-TASTE-IN-MUSIC-NECK.

It's like comparing the Sistine Chapel and your retarded nephew's crayon refrigerator drawing.

Beach Boys have more "respect," but I'd much rather listen to The Outfield. And you're gonna pick "Good Vibrations"?

Good Vibrations is plodding, which is the worst crime a song can commit. It then completely changes gears into a falsetto chorus they couldn't wait to license to whatever chunky corporation wanted to use it.

Anyone with a soul instantly becomes psyched when Your Love starts. I know you picked the version for the show that doesn't immediately begin with the vocals, but I defy anyone with a soul to not start singing along when it starts.

The one by The Outfield begins "Josie's on a vacation far away..."

The one I thought you were referring to was "(Your Love Kees Lifting Me) Higher and Higher" by Jackie Wilson

I can't vote for a song that uses the word "excitations" repeatedly. Also, Good Vibrations begins talking about bright colorful clothes and beautiful hair, which can only refer to the Outfield.

Good Vibrations is a perfect composition, a 4-minute symphony, the culmination of the career of one of the most brilliant songwriters to ever walk the Earth.

Your Love is a passable '80s pop-rock ditty.

Your opinion is terrible.

Jesus, between this and my sister in law saying she "never understood all the hoopla" about Star Wars, I can't handle any more terrible opinions.

This thread is now down for retoolling.

I'd like to request some cool surf music like "Pipeline" by The Chantays or "The Savage" by The Shadows.

Oh wow! That's very cool. Yeah, Surfaris definitely qualify as "real surf music".

The Beach Boys Pet Sounds album was an interesting (and very successful) foray into musical genres they were not normally involved in. Much heavier and deeper emotional content than their usual light tone surfer music.

Consider <i>Don't Worry Baby</i>, where he's trying to convince his woman that he knows that (auto) racing is dangerous but he's going to be careful. Also the music itself is much more somber than some of their lighter fare such as <i>Surfin' USA</i> or the song that plays at the end of the movie "American Graffiti," <i>All Summer Long</i>, with the immediately recognizable xylophone opening.

I used to mondegreen the opening of that song. I used to think it had the line "Ben Vereen you still danced through our house," when it actually sang, "Remember when I spilled Coke all over your blouse."
