My Favorite Beach Boys Songs

I was born and raised in California, have blue eyes and blond hair, go to the beach several times a year, really like the Beach Boys, but just aquired my first album at age 43. Here are my favorite Beach Boys songs:

Faves: I Get Around; 409; Surfin' USA; Fun, Fun, Fun; Help Me Rhonda; Barbara Ann

Next best: Surfin' Safari; Little Deuce Coupe; Sloop John B; When I Grow Up To Be A Man; Catch A Wave; Kokomo


  1. But have you not missed one of the best of all, "Caroline"?

  2. Abu, thanks for your comment. I just might have missed out. I'm not familiar with that song. Maybe I'll try to listen to it on-line. Thanks for the tip.

  3. I think it's "Caroline, No." I recommend getting the Pet Sounds album. Your list may be changed a bit.

  4. James, you might be right. I never got into Beach Boys albums, but heard them my whole life on the radio and on the juke box. I hear that Pet Sounds received much more critical acclaim than popularity, and that even the Beatles looked to it as inspiration for sound experimentation. The few songs from that album I am familiar with are some of their best at harmony. Maybe someday...
