Whelp, In My Car came up on shuffle and I enjoyed it. Every time a Cruisin' song gets played and liked, a Mike Love gets a new van.

Ah, I man after my heart. :cool:

Al and Carl sound great on that one. Take that, Island Girl, and Carl's solo vocals on the rest of the songs from SC and you have a decent uh, EP. Oh and Wipe Out too, obvs.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Holy crap, I never knew about this cover until this evening but THIS IS BRILLIANT, especially the Dali's indigestion video.
That was fuckin RAD. Just Saturday I was at my friends house and he let me choose a record during poker and I tortured the crowd with WoV, they were fucking great.

10/12 and I went against my instincts on one that I missed.

I feel that, had he lived, John Lennon would have loved Donkey Kong.

Just kidding, the show was years later and she played an all-american mom. But once upon a time...

Also, she was in From Here to Eternity, which the Clash made famous decades later by mentioning it in a song.

I'm right in there with you at 41! I once brought up on the Smiley Smile Message Board how I thought many of their songs from the Smiley Smile through Holland period sounded like they could have been released by contemporary indie bands and the 60-70 year old's came down on me like a ton of bricks.

I’m actually almost 42, I just got lazy.
