Best Beach Boys Songs
The Top Ten
I would honestly consider it a candidate for being the greatest song off all time! - BKAllmighty
Its so better and different than their other songs. Its surprising - iTunesJunky
90 hours of tape recording. $50,000 put into the recording - worth about $200,000 nowadays. A masterful combination of multiple instruments and harmonies to make a truly universally happy song.

I have warm memories as a child listening to this great song and thought that it was the greatest thing I've ever listened to. Now it's a song I would play in the car during a date. - Windowstcm1988
One of the greatest songs ever made - pure genius!
This is Paul McCartney's favorite song from his favorite album of all time, so it must be pretty damn great
*Sigh* This is The One. Beautiful. - BritgirlV 10 Comments
I'd love to wake up to this song every morning. It's just so amazing. Most definitely deserves number one spot.
Those opening chimes at the beginning...that wistful bit of melancholy you feel as you listen to it...THE perfect song on a day in late August as summer is ending watching a beautiful girl walking along the beach with a bit of autumn chill creeping in!
This song describes the joy of looking forward and daydreaming so beautifully. - beatles

Such energizing song. It's great!
I love this one it always makes me happy and gives me such a great feeling because it makes me think of all the times I was watching " Look Who's Talking" with my mom.
This song just makes you wanna dance!
Great 60's pop tune. - JCHOWV 5 Comments
One of the greatest songs of all time, especially since I live in California and near the beach where they truly are the best honeys in the world.
So happy, upbeat, and just overall an amazing song and just so happens to be my most favorite song of all time.
Yes, just yes
The song is ok, but the opening section is the most beatiful thing I have ever heard - RecklessGreed
WOW so under-rated. It should be easy in the top ten. Its easily in my top 3. Great song, common guys rate it up!
How is this not number 1 so good
:0 So great, it's amazing!
Surfin usa is fun is they say beer not pier hahaaha
I am 16 and I LOVE the Beach Boys. With a pure pride and joy. I know every last word to every single song. This mean I am committed to really decide a good song. This song, and many others on this list are AMAZING! However, this one frosts the cake by far. Its light and upbeat and it really gets your imagination go wild!
We may think it's stupid now, but back in the day you couldn't stop loving it. The Beach Boys made a great come back song.
Brilliant song, a timeless classic! Vocals are flawless, and instrumental harmony impeccable! Molto bene, or as the Italians say, Molto bene! KOKOMO! Gracias...

This song is beautiful and the vocals of brian in it are unique it should be 3 behind good vibrations and god only knows
I'm so glad to see it in the top ten where it belongs. - PetSounds
Such a great song how is this number?! Piano is amazing.
How the hell is Kokomo above Surf's Up? Mike Love trying to be relevant vs. Brian Wilson on his absolute musical peak creating harmonies far beyond human?
This is just sad. Though I wouldn't agree, I'm fine with Good Vibrations, God Only Knows, Wouldn't It Be Nice, and California Girls being above this one, but Kokomo? What is wrong with this list?
It's my dad's favorite but no songs are my favorite
Catchy, quick and fun, fun fun!
Lyrics crafted off an American Folk song, but if we are being fair minimal of the Beach Boys music remains pertinent in terms of lyric meaning. The tune and construction a far more important - which makes it top 3 (in my opinion of course).
My favourite. I know the lyrics are basic but the tune is irresistible. A timeless classic
Powerful song, impeccable instrumentation throughout... Mike Love's vocals in the middle are the weak spot, though what do you expect.
Good one at first impretionV 2 Comments
I get tearful every time I hear this. So beautifully sung and makes me think of Summer. *Sigh* - Britgirl
One of the greatest songs of all time
The best song of Beach Boys.
This should be on the top beautifulV 2 Comments
Best surfing song it's real funky
Awesome song. Love it
It's just a happy little ditty! I dunno, but somehow it's my favorite Beach Boys tune! - higgsboson2142
It sounds great and it's a perfect song, but doesn't seem as experimental as some of the other stuff. Just a great song.
It's different from all the others. It has a little something that makes it more than a song. It's an experience.
Excellent it's like a psychedelic barbershop quartet.

So catchy...my personal favorite
I love the song because it reminds me of my best friend's Aunt.
It's also uplifting feel good song.
A phenomenal job on lead vocals by Al Jardine!
Should be higher!
I love this song
Grew up listening to this song blasting in the car while I sat in my car seat, grew up having my dad sing this to me. My favorite Beach Boys song, hands down.!
How on earth can this song be so far off the top 5 songs I've no idea. Personally I love this song a lot.
My personal favorite, I have no idea why this song was not in top 10
Nice song. Should be higher!
A pure classic. listened to it over and over during my tween years in Santa Cruz. Got my first kiss from my "girlfriend" at the Friday night dance.
Really underrated, even among fans. It's definitely in my top ten--maybe even five. - PetSounds
Excellent vocals, especially in the outro, a psychedelic journey, this has to be one of the greats. The trouble is, pet sounds created so many epic songs.
The best song on Pet Sounds in my opinion.
So much underrated!
An explosion of perfect sounds...
This is hands down the best song
JFK was assassinated as Brian Wilson and Mike Love were writing this song. It took on a whole new meaning. - PetSounds
What! How can this be ranked so low. It should be 2nd just behind Good Vibrations.
Great song with best hook of any of their recordings.
Simple but effective.
Man what a beautiful song
Should be #1!
Wow this song isn't even on the list?!?! This should be up in the top 10/15 easily.
This song gets lost somehow, but is the 2nd best song on Pet Sounds. The first time I heard this it was unlike anything I'd ever heard...
Their best song prior to Pet Sounds in my opinion
One of Carl Wilson's greatest songs
Discovered this wonderful song watching "Almost Famous" - Thanks Cameron Crowe :-)
"Werewolves of London" used the piano lick from this song. - PetSounds
One of my favorite songs of all time
Might be they're second best song I think
Seriously emotional ballad into Brian's mental issues. Underrated song!
A deep and powerful song
Awesome opener on Sunflwoer
This is amazing, even if you don't vote for it give it a listen, it has an amazing mood!
Isn't this #1?
