    I'm a huge fan of Surf's Up - the album and the song.

    Musicians just don't make beatiful albums like The Beach Boys or The Beatles used to do. I mean, they cared so much about harmonies, about other instruments, about having nice lyrics and melodies. Everything is so well thought, everything is just heavenly. Now musicians leave music to a computer, or do some stuff with really distorted guitars or just sing songs that don't really stick to the social subconscious, but rather are only accepted in this niche in which the band usually revolves around. The only thing I've heard this beautiful lately are other Brian Wilson albums.

    Ahhhh the Beach Boys. One of the bands I can listen to when I just need to calm down.

    Don't know their music that well, other than the hits. I enjoy the classics and also the later day studio albums (Still Cruisin' & Summer in Paradise).

    As for deep album cuts and catalog stuff, I'll just have to dive head first into some of these videos :)

    "Wendy" was always one of my very favorites from their early catalog. Thanks for the live performance vid, Astrid. Pretty crummy direction from the Ed Sullivan show control booth though, cutting to a shot of Dennis on drums right when Carl starts his guitar solo. There aren't many videos out there that actually show him playing his signature Jazzmaster and Strat solos.
