Gee, I expected something of "That lucky old sun" type of quality but I better don't get my hopes up.

Re: The Beach Boys' 50th anniversary thread

Some first reviews of the new single (copied from the SmileySmileMessageBoard):



http://www.npr.org/blogs/allsongs/2012/ ... n-40-years

Bob Boilen of NPR's All Songs Considered calls it their "Best New Song in 40 Years"

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/songr ... o-20120425
3/5 from Rolling Stone - "Kinda cosmic, sorta corny, undeniably beautiful."

http://music-mix.ew.com/2012/04/25/beac ... the-radio/
Entertainment Weekly - "“That’s Why God Made the Radio” certainly has everything a vintage Beach Boys tune needs: Breezy harmonies, references to cars, and an almost exhausting sense of sweetness."

I won't post each and every setlist but to let you know what an open air concert by the Beach Boys probably will look like (no Dennis and Carl videos), here's the set for the Jazz Fest yesterday (taken from the SmileySmileMessageBoard):


Do It Again - no soundcheck, so there were problems hearing the vocals early in the concert. Mike's first line or so was completely inaudible.
Catch a Wave
Don't back Down
Surfin safari
Surfer Girl - as Brian sang the bridge Mike started dancing with some woman... kinda cheezy and distracting
Then I Kissed Her - Al sounds like the record... in very fine voice
You're So Good To Me
Why Do Fools Fall in Love
When I grow up to be a man - this went over really well
Cottonfields
Be True to Your School - w/ Stamos
Don't Worry Baby - Jeff
Little Deuce Coupe
409
Shut Down
I get around
Sloop John B
Wouldnt It Be Nice
Sail On Sailor
Heroes and Villains
God Only Knows: no Carl video, sung by Brian who did fine on it
That's Why God Made the Radio: sounded good but Brian kept missing his cues on the verses
California Girls
Help Me Rhonda
Barbara Ann
Surfin' USA
Kokomo - Stamos on bongos
Good Vibes
Fun Fun Fun - Stamos returns again
