Postby jgkojak » Thu Apr 26, 2012 10:43 pm

The first single - THAT'S WHY GOD MADE THE RADIO

Its a little retro, but in a good way. What do you all think?

it's all fine and dandy, G4B...there is a topic "other artsists" where something like this is completely appropriate.

and jgkojak is royalty here. one of the old timers. so...let's give the guy some respect. glad to see you around again, sir :salute

:? ...just what the heck is an 'artsists' anyway...sounds painful

kj, sorry dude, never was much of a BB fan...but i am glad that they are back to bring you some joy.

i remember listening to some of your songs over in that other section and i always thought brian might've been one of your influences, so, i hope you are enjoying this prelude...

but, praytell, brother, what did you think ?
lift up your head...and remember what your life is !

yeah, truth be told...i was never much of a beach boy fan either...but i always respected them...especially brian. although i've always been a secret fan of the 70's sail on sailor.

and G4B, no conceeding necessary. you've earned your stripes here. feel free to express whatever opinion you like. i only meant to suggest that there are places here to discuss things other than paul and the beatles. and this thread was one of them. i hope i can expect you to not hold anything back. matter of fact, between us...i'm counting on it. deal?

1) Posted in the 'other artists' thread
2) Macca is one of Brian's biggest fans. Macca's favorite song is a Beach Boys song ("God Only Knows")
3) Macca and Brian have collaborated ("A Friend Like You", etc)
4) Brian will say it was his competition with the Beatles/Rubber Soul that drove him to work on Good Vibrations and Smile...

That's a pretty solid connection.

What do I think?

It's a timeless piece of music - it could have been released on Sunflower (1970) or on anything after that-

And it is a real grower, something only the Beach Boys can do.

From a marketing perspective, given that Mike Love has driven this idea that the Beach Boys are all retro-oldies, this is probably not what I'd lead with - I would have gone with a rocker- surely on their new record they have a couple old-fashioned BBoys rockers? Anyway, its a solid song in and of itself.
