    Southern California in the Summer is like living in a Beach Boys record.
    Only by living absurdly is it possible to break out of this infinite absurdity.
    -Julio Cortazar

    Seeing as how jd and Goallum are trying to get threads going discussing movies and music maybe this thread can turn into a discussion of.... The Beach Boys!

    Why do you loathe them???

    I enjoy the harmonies the most. Their catalog isn't all that strong but they do have a fair amount of strong material. My favorites are in this mix.

    Hearing their music on the radio almost daily for years in the late 60's and early 70's. Reminds me of all those cheesy garbage AM Radio pop songs.

    Living in Southern California, it's assumed we HAVE to like 'em but I can do without.

    I feel the same way about Queen. If I never hear "Another One Bites the Dust" again I will die a happy man.

    But, certain Beach Boys songs have never lost their ability to transcend me.

    It might seem like a cliche thing to say, but I think Pet Sounds is such a wonderful album.

    I have yet to really absorb that entire album other than the well known songs. I have a copy that I'm listening to, so, I'm working on it.

    "Without Pet Sounds, Sgt. Pepper wouldn't have happened... Pepper was an attempt to equal Pet Sounds." - Beatles Producer.George Martin

    "It was Pet Sounds that blew me out of the water. I love the album so much. I've just bought my kids each a copy of it for their education in life ... I figure no one is educated musically 'til they've heard that album ... I love the orchestra, the arrangements ... it may be going overboard to say it's the classic of the century ... but to me, it certainly is a total, classic record that is unbeatable in many ways ... I've often played Pet Sounds and cried. I played it to John so much that it would be difficult for him to escape the influence ... it was the record of the time. The thing that really made me sit up and take notice was the bass lines ... and also, putting melodies in the bass line. That I think was probably the big influence that set me thinking when we recorded Pepper, it set me off on a period I had then for a couple of years of nearly always writing quite melodic bass lines. "God Only Knows" is a big favorite of mine ... very emotional, always a bit of a choker for me, that one. On "You Still Believe in Me", I love that melody - that kills me ... that's my favorite, I think ... it's so beautiful right at the end ... comes surging back in these multi-colored harmonies ... sends shivers up my spine." - Paul McCartney

    The Beach Boys only had Brian Wilson has their Resident Musical Genius whereas The Beatles had Lennon, McCartney, George Martin and the engineers at Abbey Road studios to form a behemoth of creativity.

    The Beach Boys did have the unbelievable magic of Carl Wilson, Al Jardine and Mike Love's harmony and lead vocal abilities which the song writing/arranging of Brian used impeccably at times.
