Apparently, one of the great songs of all time, California Girls, isn't very "woke." Honestly, I feel bad for anyone offended by the lyrics to California Girls, they're gonna have a tough time in life.
Odd that this album has had no follow-up posts. Not being a lyrics person, I'm blissfully unaware of any problems in that department.
SD(ASN!!) is a gem-encrusted patchwork quilt of an album. Even "Bugged" is okay in my book. My favourite track if I have to name one? "Salt Lake City". All wonderful stuff. If one were allowed only one album to represent mid-sixties pop, SD would be a fair choice.
Yeah this section hasn’t exactly been on fire with activities, especially since those weekly album threads do the same thing. We blew through these in a day or two—including KDS in peak sass form!—but rarely returned unfortunately.
I love SDSN. “Girl from New York City” is one of the underrated gems in the catalog in my opinion.
Ah, this is perfect timing. Just yesterday I was marveling at the incredible drum sound of "Then I Kissed Her". I listened to it 3 times in a row! Is he just hitting the snare or is he combining it with the kick? Maybe a floor tom? I'm not sure, but what a fantastic thud!
By the way, if you're in a good mood, and the sun's out, and you want to keep it going, a heavy dose of Today! and SDSN will keep you there. Never fails.
Sorry, but I kinda got to laugh at this. I've said it before: I can understand where he's coming from when he sings the high-pitched "let him RUN" in the chorus. But, the rest of his lead (w/the possible exception of the first line) and backing vocals are incredible.
lonelysummer: Shoot, i gave up on new music in the 90's.

Kapitan: Anyone want to kick off the next year's music to discuss? Pick anything except 1976, 1963, 1989, 2002, or 2010.

Kapitan: If not, I'll post a new one later today.

carllove: If you want to pick one today, I can do one Monday. Gotta start getting ready to power wash my deck this morning! Did get my thoughts in on 2010 this morning. Rough year!

carllove: Actually Kapitan, my husband is still sleeping, so I will choose a year this morning. It will be 1972.

B.E.: '63-72 - not just the best years for the Beach Boys but for popular music.
