I hope this is the right place to make this, but they are old and a rock band, so classic rock seems right.


Does anyone here enjoy listening to The Beach Boys? I certainly do.

I got Pet Sounds for Christmas and it is such a great album. They are definitely one of the best (or at least most influential) American bands ever.

They have absolutely awesome vocal harmonies and their songs are so feel-good and easy to listen to, I would consider myself quite a Beach Boys fan.


Anyone else like them?

Loved them when I was a kid, about the only cd of my Dad's limited collection that I would want to listen to. He has a live album that I think is just amazing. Fantastic band, wrote so many catchy hits that are definately just feel-good songs.

My favourites:

Sloop John B. - live version is amazing, one of my favourite recorded live songs I've ever heard
Wouldn't It Be Nice
Good Vibrations
God Only Knows
It's not the fear of what's beyond
It's just that I might not respond

A band doesn't need to be edgy to be good.


My favorite songs are:

Good Vibrations
God Only Knows
Fun, Fun, Fun
Babara Ann
Wouldn't it be Nice?
Help me Rhonda
Kokomo

And some others.

I don't know a whole lot about them, but I absolutely love God Only Knows. It was perfect for the end of Love Actually.
Listen to mah discs.



And coming soon, THE CLEVER DEVILS VS. THE BLONDES.

I love Pet Sounds and still listen to it often. But other Beach Boys songs and records were played too much when I was young and have just become irritating to me.

I used to just think they were tacky and cheesy but now i listen to them quite a bit. Trying to get a whole music class to sing Barbera Anne in perfect harmonies is not easy though, especially as most of us cant sing

Beach Boys are awesome.

However, Brian Wilson's solo album sMiLe (or however the **** he spelt it) was dissapointing for how long it took to make.

The singing is just incredible. One of the only bands that can match The Beatles in vocal harmonies.
And of course they wrote just fun, happy songs that anyone with an open mind would love. Good stuff.

The Beach Boys are awesome. Next time you get plastered, just crank it up and surf on your couch, it's brilliant fun.
