Michael Jackson – Childhood Lyrics 4 years ago
Over the top sappy, syrupy, adult contemporary dreck. Also, there isn't a single "whoo", "hee hee", "ugh", "ah", "hoo", "ow", or "shamone" in this song.

Weird Al Yankovic – Inactive Lyrics 6 years ago
As with most of Al's parodies, he takes a crappy top 40 pop song and vastly improves upon it/makes it actually listenable.

The Beach Boys – Good Vibrations Lyrics 13 years ago
Are you Mike Love posting under a pseudonym? I actually like to listen to BOTH Cabin Essence and Don't Worry Baby. Actually, the whole reason I like Cabin Essence is because of the weirdness (and also because of Carl Wilson's vocals). OVER AND OVER THE CROW CRIES UNCOVER THE CORNFIELD!

The Beach Boys – Chapel Of Love Lyrics 13 years ago
Are you on crack? "Brian Wilson experimental stuff never worth listening to"? Have you even listened to Pet Sounds, SMiLE, Smiley Smile, Wild Honey, Friends, 20/20, Sunflower, Surf's Up, Carl and the Passions, Holland, Love You, and/or L.A. (Light Album)? All GREAT albums, worth every penny! Saying the Beach Boys output from '67 to '80 is "generally forgettable" is nothing more than an act of ignorance. All you're doing is closing yourself off to some great music. Songs like "Wonderful", "Wind Chimes", "Let The Wind Blow", "Darlin'", "Friends", "Little Bird", "Busy Doin' Nothin'", "Do It Again", "Cotton Fields", "Cool Cool Water", "Forever", "This Whole World", "Long Promised Road", "Feel Flows", "'Til I Die", "Marcella", "Cuddle Up", "All This Is That", "Sail On Sailor", "California Saga", "The Trader", "I'll Bet He's Nice", "Johnny Carson", "Full Sail", "Angel Come Home", "Love Surround Me", etc. all come from this era of the Beach Boys. You're doing yourself and anyone reading this page a great disservice by writing off quite possibly the best period of the Beach Boys' career. Just because 15 Big Ones sucks, it doesn't mean that all of the BBs 70s stuff is bad!

The Beach Boys – Cool, Cool Water Lyrics 13 years ago
The lines "when I'm thirsty and I reach for a glass, cool water is such a gas" were originally written by Mike Love for a Coca-Cola commercial. "Coca-Cola is such a gas..." The rest of the song dates back to the SMiLE era, though.

He doesn't say "Michigan" or "Nishigesh", he ways "Rishikesh". Rishikesh is a city in India where the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi taught Trancendental Meditation.

Love this song!

Apparently its about a hooker/masseuse that Brian Wilson "visited" in the early 70s.

The Beach Boys – All Dressed Up For School Lyrics 13 years ago
This song is quite dirty for its time...

The melody of the verse was recycled for I've Just Got My Pay, the chorus of I Just Got My Pay was recycled for Marcella.

Very Beatle-esque, an obvious ripoff/homage to Ticket To Ride, but yet it still has that "California sound" to it.

Barenaked Ladies – Box Set Lyrics 15 years ago
I bet disc 4 will be Buck Naked, or maybe the tape Steve made pre-BNL with his high school freind called Scary Movie Breakfast. The disc 6 dance remix should be interesting. The one I'm that's gonna make me cream in my pants is disc 5. I'm dying to hear the special computer they used as his replacement. :)

The Beach Boys – California Calling Lyrics 15 years ago
Sorry, Swing King, but I'm gonna have to disagree with you on this song. First, Mike Love's nasally vocal flat out ruins the song. Second, the lyrics are rather weak, and in my opinion, quite corny. Third, I think this song was nothing but a cash-in by Mike and Al on the classic style Brian had perfected in the 60s. Either that, or Mike and Al had some sort of a middle age crisis where they made a really bad attempt to recapture their youth.

Barenaked Ladies – Brian Wilson Lyrics 15 years ago
Sir Larrikan, I have one correction to make concerning your post about "Smiley Smile." "Good Vibrations" was NOT recorded after Brian Wilson's mother died. Audree Wilson died in 1997, "Good Vibrations" was recorded and released as a single in 1966, and featured on the album "Smily Smile" in 1967, 30 years before Brian Wilson's mother died.

And another thing, "Good Vibrations" was originally meant to be included on the legendary "lost" follow-up to "Pet Sounds", "SMiLE". Wilson had his famous mental breakdown during the period when "SMiLE" was being recorded. Brian never finished SMiLE (until 2004). SMiLE was supposed to be Wilson's grand masterpiece, it would've blown "Sgt. Pepper's" out of the water if it were finished back in the 60s. Instead of putting out SMiLE, the Beach Boys made "Smiley Smile", featuring the hit single "Good Vibrations", plus low-key, minimalist, rough sounding remakes of several SMiLE songs. "Smiley Smile", although it is a good album, is nothing compared to SMiLE. The "Creative drought" may refer to the fact that Wilson went through an actual "creative drougt" after SMiLE, "Smiley Smile" being a product of this "drought".
