Why haven't there been a new album from The Beach Boys since 1996? by Hannah Q: I was wondering I was looking at The Beach Boys discography on wikipedia and they havent recorded an album since 1996.Why?

A: There has not been a good Beach Boys album in 33 years. Brothers Brian, Carl, and Dennis Wilson were the heart of the band. Brian was (is) the genius, albeit a troubled genius, and has a successful solo career. Carl and Dennis are dead. The Beach Boys as they exist today are a touring dinosaur driven by Mike Love's greed. You can see them live, maybe have a laugh or two, hear the hits, but The Beach Boys are no longer an ACTIVE or creative band. I say thank God they have not released a new album in fourteen years. The world's ears could not bare another Summer in Paradise or Stars and Stripes Vol. 1, two of the worst albums of the 1990s and a disgrace to the memory of the true Beach Boys.

Do the beach boys have a monopoly game? by sxyblond69 Q: the title says it all. And if yes, where would i find it to buy? please help!!!! Friends birthday coming up and i want to get it for him he looooves the Beach Boys!!!!!!!!! thanks all. sucks they dont have one lol. yeah monopoly doesnt accept emails about new ideas either haha.

A: No, they don't. Which is too bad. They were a neat group.

what beach boys album do you think has been overlooked? by Colin Wholigan Q: i personally think a lot of their post "pet sounds"material has been overlooked.the one album that i really think has been overlooked is "sunflower",that was probably the most democratic of all beach boys albums and one of the few where all 6 beach boys(brian,carl,dennis,al,mike,and bruce)wrote or co-wrote at least 1 song.

A: You wanted to know their most overlooked, right? Smiley Smile is their second greatest and their weirdest album. It was released after the Smile sessions had collapsed and is real mellow with almost zero percussion. The fact that it's been all but forgotten is totally tragic.

What do you think about the beach boys? by x•°meadow°•-|- Q: What do you think about the beach boys and their music?

A: Senior Citizens... Do they do ads for Geritol now?

Who do you prefer, beach boys or the beatles and why? by Alfie Q: I pretty much enjoy both bands the same. I know they are slightly different but there are obvious similarities between them. BQ: Now playing (Surfin' U.S.A. - beach boys) BQ2: Better songwriter, brian wilson or paul mccartney

A: The Beatles. The Beach Boys are great, but I love the Beatles because of how much their taste expanded over the decade they were together. I get more out of the Beatles' melodies and lyrics than I ever do with the Beach Boys. BQ: Twentieth Century Fox - The Doors BQ2: McCartney

Did the Beach Boys copy someone else's rendition of Cotton Fields? by Baffled Son Q: I know it is a Lead Belly song, and that many people have recorded it. I think I read somewhere that the Beach Boys copied someone else's version (with the "nail in my tire" and all that), but I can't find reference to it on the web. If it truly is a Beach Boy original, who wrote the revised lyrics? Was it Al?

A: As far as i know, the lyrics that The Beach Boys use are the same lyrics that Harry Belafonte used in 1958 in his version of Cotton Fields.

where can I get free sheet music to the beach boys song kokomo? by Sarah Q: does anyone know?? I have looked everywhere!! does anyone know where I could get the free piano sheet music to the beach boys song kokomo? thanks!!

A: Sorry but you cannot get copyrighted sheet music for free!!

Help from NM! Does anyone know where I can get a copy of the New Mexico Version of "Kokomo" by the Beach Boys? by NMGal Q: KISS FM (old radio station) back in the days (about 15 years ago) recorded a cassette tape of the NM Version of "Kokomo" by the Beach Boys. I had one but it doesn't work anymore. I am stretching far into the internet world hoping to find a copy.

A: limewire

What is the name of the Beach Boys song that starts "She's one of those girls that seems to come is a dream"? by Q: Not really sure it is a Beach Boys song, but I think so. Came out sometime in the 60's.

A: I'll bet you're thinking of "Younger Girl" by the Lovin Spoonful http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20091210133938AAySsIG This is a real coincidence because I was just messing around with this on guitar. : She's one of those girls, Who seems to come in the spring. One look in her eyes, And you forget everything, You had ready to say. And I saw her today, yeah. A younger girl Keeps rollin' 'cross my mind. No matter how much I try, I can't seem to leave her memory behind. I remember her eyes, Soft dark and brown. Said she'd never been in trouble, Even in town A younger girl Keeps rollin' 'cross my mind. No matter how much I try, I can't seem to leave her memory behind. [Instrumental break.] A younger girl Keeps rollin' 'cross my mind. And should I hang around, Acting like her brother? In a few more years, They'd call us right for each other. And why, If I wait I'll just die, yeah. A younger girl Keeps rollin' 'cross my mind. No matter how much I try, I can't seem to leave her memory behind. I remember her eyes, Soft dark and brown. Said she'd never been in trouble, Even in town A younger girl Keeps rollin' 'cross my mind. [Fade.] She's one of those girls, Who seems to come in the spring. One look in her eyes, And you forget everything, You had ready to say... Lyrics: Younger Girl, Lovin' Spoonful [end]

What's the remix of "California Gurls" by Katy Perry with the beach boys(i think)? played on kiis FM? by Grover Q: I dont know if its the beach boys who begin the song but it sounds like "California Dreamin"

A: A few not new, but I guess somewhat current bands you might like: The Apples In Stereo, Belle & Sebastian, Badly Drawn Boy, Eels...

Im going to see The Beach Boys Band tomorrow? by K-Lawn Q: A man in my community is dying and he is throwing a party with the Beach Boys Band playing. Is Brian Wilson in it. And if not, who is?

A: You most likely won't see Brian Wilson. You will probably see Mike Love and Bruce Johnston. Al Jardine also tours under the Beach Boys name. All of them include family members of some sort.

What song is a peoples favorite by The Beach Boys ? by Philkillens Girl. Q: Do you like this song ? The Beach Boys - ""Surfin' USA [Live]"" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1FaflUn4Co Thank You.

A: I get around God only knows I don't particularly like "Surfin' USA".

Which members of The Beach Boys are dead? by Hannah Q: I heard that some members of The Beach Boys have died and who are they? and how did they die?

A: dennis wilson in 1983 from drowning,although he was drunk at the time,so his cause of death was ruled "death by misadventure",created big problems with his insurance company when it came time to pay death benefits to his family!dennis was actually buried at sea(his family had to get presidential permission because under normal circumstances civilians aren't allowed to be buried at sea) carl wilson in 1998 from brain and lung cancer! many have said that when carl died,the beach boys died with him because shortly after that al left to create his own group that would eventually be known as endless summer and brian had been out of the band for awhile anyway with his own band the wondermints! the only beach boys left are mike love and bruce johnston who tour to this day as the beach boys and largely as a nostalgia act(though they've actually been touring as a nostalgia act since endless summer came out in 1974,but i'd digress) hope this helps! Colin

Any songs or bands similar to the beach boys style? by Q: Can you please tell me any bands or songs (i don't care from which country or time period) similar to the beach boys? the type of music that makes you feel like in the beach or that makes you feel full of energy with that 60's vibe. thanks!

A: Jan and Dean

Apart From Pet Sounds, What Is The Best Beach Boys Album? by Q: Pet Sounds seems to be the one Beach Boys that's mentioned the most. What are some of their other albums that you think are great and should be recognised more? BQ: Favourite surf rock band? BQ2: What's the next movie you plan on seeing?

A: PS is the apex in my and most opinions it seems. My second favorite album by them is "Surf's Up" (1971). Smiley Smile is the product of the unfinished "Smile" work that Brian Wilson was planning. Overall it is interesting but only a few great tracks, "Good Vibrations" and "Heroes and Villains" are the best, but "Wonderful" and "Wind Chimes" are fantastic and essential too. There are other decent tracks on it too, imo it's underrated. The best pre-PS material imo are the albums "Today" and "Summer Days (and Summer Nights)" also the "Surfer Girl" album is their first good one, imo. The title track and "In My Room" are classic ballads. At least have those two. Other good ones are "Wild Honey", "Sunflower" and "Friends" all from post-PS era. "Holland" isn't a great album overall but has one of their best songs ever in "Sail on Sailor", "The Beaks of Eagles" is pretty cool too. BQ: The Beach Boys are too good to be called that, except their first few albums really. But I'll rank Dick Dale a bit above Surfin' USA :P (I can't really even call the "Surfer Girl" album "Surf Rock"... it's just not the same style by that point, they were already evolving into something else). BQ2: Not sure, I have a long list tho, perhaps "Equilibrium".

Beach boys Smile sessions box set in dubai? by Q: Can anybody please tell me if the Beach boys Smile Sessions box set is available in Dubai. If yes, can i find it somewhere near Rotana resort hotel ? And I would like to know how much does it cost there? Thank you very much.

A: Virgin Mega Store @ Dubai mall / Mall of Em. / Bur Juman Mall / Deira City Centre If they don't have it in stock they can order it for you

Which Album do you like more: The Beach Boys Today or Smiley Smile? by Q: I want to know which album by the Beach Boys you prefer more. Today is innovate, like SMiley, but in a more accessible per se way. Smiley is innovative in a crazy psychedelic way.

A: Hmmm, hard question to answer. But, I'd go with Today! Tracks such as Do You Wanna Dance?, Good to My Baby, Help Me, Ronda(even though I prefer the single version which can be found on Summer Days and Summer Nights), Dance, Dance, Dance (love Brian's awesome falsetto), Please Let Me Wonder, Kiss Me, Baby(such a good make up and make out song), In the Back of My Mind(great Dennis track)

What band is this... they have a similar sound to the beach boys? by Rikkitee Q: I always listened to two cds, the beach boys and this other cd, and the other band's songs were similar to the beach boys, on the cover of the cd were the guy's faces, and no, it isn't the beatles. Their name is on the tip of my tongue.. maybe starts with S... Please help!

A: http://www.last.fm/music/The+Beach+Boys/+similar?page=1 <--- pages upon pages of bands similar to the Beach Boys. "S" is not enough to go on, and that's only a "maybe" anyway, so maybe you should browse these until you remember.

Did anyone here see and hear the Beach Boys play on Dancing with the stars? by Fake Name Q: Wow, there is only one original member and his voice has gone South. I think a Beach Boy sound alike is better than them now days.

A: thats funny I thought the same thing, I thought they were singing from the grave. like with one foot in the grave. it wasn't good. hey beach boys at some point you have to quit and retire.

What Is your Favorite Beach Boys Song ? by Depp Q: Or meatloaf song? My favorite Beach Boys song is Kokomo and my favorite Meatloaf song is I would Do anything for love.

A: The whole Pet Sounds is a great album and I like Fun Fun Fun, Hawaii, Little Honda, Surfin USA, Surfin safari, Wild honey, I get Around, and of course good Vibrations. Oh, and Let Him Run Wild

What is the song called with Beach Boys? by Becca M Q: There is a song that says something about the Beach Boys in it... I have no idea what it's called or who it's by. but It's bothering me because i know it is a good song.... Does anyone have any idea what it's called? or how I can find out?? Thanks so muchh!! If you answer I'll answer you're question.

A: Could always do a Yahoo or Google search for "songs that have the beach boys in it"?

Kevin Love of UCLA basketball is related to the Beach Boys Mike Love? by dude58677 Q: Mike Love is related to Brian Wilson who wrote the music for the Beach Boys? So this family has both athletic talent and musical talent? What are the chances of this? I was asking what are the odds of someone who has a family history of that kind of athletic talent as well as that kind of musical talent?

A: Kevin Love is the nephew of the Beach Boys' Mike Love. Kevin's dad, Stan Love (Mike's brother), played in the NBA and ABA. http://www.nba.com/historical/playerfile/index.html?player=stan_love http://www.basketball-reference.com/players/l/lovest01.html Mike Love is a cousin of Brian Wilson, Carl Wilson and Dennis Wilson. It is indeed rare for a family to have that kind of talent in two different fields.

Do you think Brian Wilson will ever tour with the Beach Boys again? by Jay Gordon Q: The Beach Boys are coming to my town and I'm debating whether to go see them or not. I don't want to hear songs like Kokomo or the oldies being sung by Mike Love. Should I wait or take my best chance to see the legendary group?

A: I HIGHLY doubt Brian will ever tour with Mike again, and if he does it won't be anytime in the near future. You can never say never with him though. The first concert I ever went to was the "Beach Boys", unfortunately it was Mike Love (& Bruce) not THE Beach Boys. It was shorty after Carl died, and the commercials they played had Brian, Carl, Al, & Mike (& Bruce) riding in a car. Needless to say when I got there I was pretty disappointed to see just Mike (I didn't know who Bruce was at the time, ah the good ol days, lol) and no Brian or Al in sight. The concert was, in general ok, but no where near Beach Boy standards. Had I known then what I know now about how Mike trashed and exploited the band and how terrible he treated his cousins I would have never gone. There is no "legendary group" anymore. The Beach Boys as a band died with Carl & Dennis. The Beach Boys were the Wilsons. If I were you I would save your money and wait til Brian comes to your area. The last concert I was at was Brian's. His current tour is pretty amazing. You can certainly tell it's the same guy teaching the Wondermints that taught the Beach Boys. You couldn't get any closer to the orginal records unless Denny & Carl were there. I've been to alot of great concerts, but Brian's was definitely the best. A recent article: Unfortunately for Beach Boys fanatics, two-fifths appears to be as good as it's ever going to get. Wilson's brothers Dennis and Carl are dead, and legal battles with first cousin Love have pushed even the notoriously forgiving Brian to the breaking point. When asked if it's still possible to have friendly relations with Love, Wilson replies, ``Not really too easily, no.'' When asked about the chances of a reunion, he says, simply, ``No chance.''

How prevelant are gigolos/beach boys in the Caribbean? by Michael M Q: Maybe I am geting less observant as I get older but I was in Tobago recently and I did not observe as many beach boys peddling sex to tourists as I used to. Maybe they moved to other Caribbean territories or wised up to the dangers of this activity?

A: Interesting how some people have not noticed this phenomenon. It was well documented in books and movies causing a sharp if temporary increase in tourists to the islands. I have seen it on Store Bay in Tobago in particular where young local guys strut up and down the beach, making small talk with tourists and then often going off with them.

Which Beach Boys song is played at California Adventure? by Q: I heard a song playing when I first walked in that I really liked, my friend said it was by the Beach Boys. It sounded like an acoustic song with lots of harmonies. It was right before Christmas, so I don't know if it was a Christmas song or not. Thanks for your help!

A: if it was a xmas one it could have been Old st nick

How many of the original Beach Boys are still alive? by Q: I know a few have passed. I see that they are doing shows, and I'm just wondering how many of the original Beach Boys are still alive and with the band. Thanks in advance :)

A: Out of the original lineup, only 3 are alive: Brian Wilson, Mike Love and Al Jardine. Other members who joined later on such as David Marks and Bruce Johnston are still alive. Dennis and Carl Wilson are both dead. Dennis drowned in Marina Del Ray in California in 1983 and Carl died from cancer in 1998. The current touring Beach Boys is comprised of Mike Love and Bruce Johnston.

What band is this, they had a similar sound to the beach boys, and older cd? by Rikkitee Q: I always listened to two cds, the beach boys and this other cd, and the other band's songs were similar to the beach boys, on the cover of the cd were the guy's faces, and no, it isn't the beatles. Their name is on the tip of my tongue.. maybe starts with S... Please help!

A: Jan and Dean maybe

What was the name of this Beach Boys documentary? by Q: In the mid-1990s, I saw on television a documentary/movie on the Beach Boys. I would like to buy this movie, but I don't know the title. I do know that it is NOT Summer Dreams. This was well-advertised, showed Dennis setting his car on fire, and though it had actors playing the parts of the Beach Boys, the songs played were the actual, original Beach Boys songs that the actors lip-synced to.

A: It was called The Beach Boys:An American Family and aired on TV in 2000

Do you think The Beach Boys are underrated? by bee Q: I think the beach boys are one of the greatest bands of all time but most people I know just think of them as old men singing surf songs. I feel they are one of the most underrated bands of all time. As Bob Dylan once said about them "You know they're fucking good man"

A: I was glad to see this question posted. The Beach Boys are one of the greatest groups of all time. No doubt about it. I don't even know which angle of their talent to brag about. The harmony was incredible and the songs... they speak for themselves. I would have loved to been around during that time!

How old is this Beach Boys record? by Thijs Q: I just bought myself a very fine copy of the Beach Boys' Surfin' Usa on vinyl, but i was wondering from what year it might be. The label on the record says (P) 1963 Capitol Records Inc. (5C 038-82009-B) But the record is in such a good condition that i can't really believe its that old! Or am i just lucky?

A: It is from 1963! I love the song "Shut Down" from that album. I have many albums from the 60's in mint condition, you just have to take good care of them.

What is the font used for the Beach Boys' Summer Days album? by cheetah325 Q: I'm looking for the font (or a similar) used by Beach Boys on the Summer Days (and Summer Night) album. (1965 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Summer_Days… ) Can you help me?

A: Hello Similar: http://www.whatfontis.com/Antiqua-Shaded.font or http://www.whatfontis.com/AxelsWoodTypesMK.font Alex

Do you think that pumped up kicks by foster the people sounds like the beach boys? by Q: My dad thnks "pumped up kicks'' by foster the people sounds like "do it again" by the beach boys lead singer Sorry i ment does it sound like the beach boys lead singer could be singing this?

A: no. the instruments and background track are completely wrong and foster the people has an indie vibe while beach boys have a vacation rock sound

Are there any bands that sound similar to The Beach Boys? by Q: I've noticed that The Beach Boys have a very distinctive sound that I've only heard from them. Are there other bands that sound like they do?

A: I'm not sure! But I don't think you need to be answering serious questions about someones health (a 7 year old little girl) with things from Resident Evil games or movies.

what songs would be best at a luau party? we're throwing a surprise party for my mom & i have the beach boys by Cynthia A Q: i have the beach boys so far. what other songs and artists would be great? also any decorating ideas/tips?

Kathy Triccoli made a video with the Beach Boys, who is the tall longhaird guy with the black cap in backup? by iamjaycee Q: Its an excellent video, and there are two original beach boys, but who is that young man, the one with long ponytail and black cap?

A: Matt Jardine, Al's son (heads up, there's 3 original BBs there; Brian Wilson, Al, & Mike Love)

what Beach Boys studio album and compliation album should i get? by Q: i am starting to get into the beach boys and i want to know is what compliation album should i get and studio album should i get? i have a few of their songs and want to know much more of their music.

A: Pet Sounds studio album Sounds of Summer: The Very Best of The Beach Boys compliation album

What is the song 'Heroes and Villains' by the Beach Boys really about? by Q: I found this song on Brian Wilson's 'Smile' album, the lyrics are almost identical to the original Beach Boys song. I love the melody, but I can't figure out what it is really about.

A: Hi, I found this link in Wikipedia : The lyric for "Heroes and Villains" exemplify the allusive and playful nature of Parks' writing for Smile, evidently combining the experiences, feelings and preoccupations of both Wilson and Parks. Along with "Surf's Up" and "Cabinessence" it is lyrically among the most complex and ambiguous of all The Beach Boys recordings. The "heroes and villains" concept has often been suggested as referring to the conflicts between Wilson and the other members of The Beach Boys, but there are clear references to Parks' experiences as well. From what I can tell, it's a 'mash-up' of several songs, that's probably why the lyrics are so unclear. First thoughts : member of drug-smuggling gang falls in love with 'wrong' girl, goes in hiding in Mexico ? Sorry I can't do better, it's an intriguing piece of music though. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heroes_and_Villains Take care !

What is that instrument in the Beach Boys song? by KrazyTwoKats Q: In "Heroes And Villains" by the Beach Boys, there is a whistle sound. I know for a fact it isn't a slide whistle, so what the heck is it?

A: Hello there, I don't know what it is, but I think you can see it at about 1:51 in the video here. Maybe you have a better guess as what it is. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7z8NRUFyN0&feature=related Later,

What are some fast paced songs by the beach boys that are more recent and are in movies, or are often heard? by Sarah Q: I can't figure out this song. I forgot the beat but my friend thinks it's by the beach boys. it was fast paced and its really catchy.

A: Fun, Fun, Fun, (til her daddy took the T-Bird away) Beach Boys

What have the Beach Boys contributed to music? by d@\/1d Q: So my cousin's stupid little friends made some groups called "The Beach Boys suck" or something. And I totally disagree with that. Weren't they like one of the biggest bands in the 60s? I'm pretty sure they shaped music somehow. Can anyone side with me and provide some feedback? Thanks!

A: Surf Rock/Psychedelic Rock they inspired bands with there vocal harmonies and lyrics which made their legacy good

What original members all tour with the Beach Boys on their current 2009 tour? by Coby Q: I'm assuming it is only Mike Love that remains, our am I mistaken. I highly doubt Brian Wilson is touring with them-but that would be awesome. 2nd part of the question: Do you think it would be worth it to see the Beach Boys as they are now?

A: 1st part has been answered. 2: Absolutely positively not. Mike Love is a despicable human being. (Some of the studio sessions from the 60's that have leaked out prove that without a doubt). He's gotten himself 'writing credits' via lawsuits on songs he didn't compose. To pay money to see a 'Wilson-free' BB show is to give monetary support to what he did to Brian, and to the bands output (imagine how music would be now if SMiLE was completed in 1967 & released then). Go see Brian.

How much for a signed beach boys album? by alcoholicirishman2003 Q: I want to sell my beach boys album that is signed by all 5 original members of the beach boys. Anyone know if there are any resources out there to determine how much its worth?

A: Priceless, I'd never sell it. There will never be more autographs from Dennis & Carl. I'd definitely hang onto it, then again I'm a huge fan. Easily 4 figures though, depending on authentication, coa, and all that jazz.

Beach Boys? by Silent Nellie Q: Is there an old Beach Boys song where the lyrics say something about slapping the baby on the bum? If you know the name of the song or C.D. I would really appreciate it.

A: "I wanna pick you up" on the "Love You" album.

Beach boys? by Sweetness Q: I know this may sound like a really stupid question to some people.. but are the beach boys still alive? also when did they make their last album

A: The primary group comprised singer-musician-composer Brian Wilson; his brothers, Carl and Dennis; their cousin Mike Love, and friend Alan Jardine. This core quintet, along with David Marks and Bruce Johnston, were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988. Dennis and Carl are now both dead.
