Jeez. A 2 and a half hour show? I hope they took their Geritol.

Next you'll tell me Mack the Knife wasn't inspired by a real knife.

I wonder if they ever asked themselves, "Hey, what if this surfin' stuff will sound dated in a few years?"

There was a half hour break in the middle. They pretty much exhausted the catalog of hits, including the ones no one remembers.

Sort of like Hefner. They won't go away. I guess that's all they got left. Well, keep on rockin'.

But did she keep you UP all night?

I used to date a girl named Rhonda. She hated that song with a fiery passion.

I maintain that Rhonda is in fact Jesse's girl.

I still can't over that all the Beach Boy songs were recorded by The Wrecking Crew Link

Couldn't Brian Wilson have just got Mike Love in the studio, barred the doors and then beaten him to death? I'm pretty sure that a jury would have acquitted him.

Does Brian Wilson really need the money that badly?

We had one for Paul, where was the 70th bday thread for Brian?

I thought Rhonda was the name of the blankee Brian used to cover his eyes with when episodes of Flipper would get too scary for him.

It was originally to be a commercial jingle for a car company but they pulled out at the last minute. Wilson realized that by simply adding a single letter he could save the song, and the rest is history.

He wrote Smile, he's a legend in my mind.

My dad used to drive a Rhona. Those were great cars.

As long as they were really surfers, I'm ok with that.
 
2012-06-21 02:25:11 PM  
People still listen to that song?
 
2012-06-21 02:27:29 PM  
how much did Mike Love actually contribute, since he's listed as co-writer on so many BB songs??

Mike Love is an awful human being.

It's my personal theory that every name has a song/jingle/commercial/character/etc. that makes them absolutely loathe having it mentioned. I call this the Michael Bolton Theory.

/My name is Mike

One has to take comments like this with a grain of salt. With the quantity of drugs Brian Wilson has consumed in his life, he could have been married to Rhonda for five years and not remember her today.

/pleased to see ALF in this thread

It would be awesome to see him and Syd Barrett in a studio together trying to write/record an album? Is Syd Barrett still alive?

They're playing in my hometown tomorrow night. 25, 30 years ago, I would've gone. Now? Nah.
