The Oral Report

Standing up in front of the class was never so much fun!

The rantings and ravings of a mom of three wonderful girls as she finds new love while working like a dog and shaking her fist at the system. You know. Pretty much like everybody else.

No Ticket Series - I

Early this morning, as my darling Highlander was sleeping in a little, I came up with an idea I thought would be fun. I heard a popular song on a commercial (one of the deadliest of sins in Highlander's world) for Sam's Club and MasterCard. The song was performed by the first band I ever saw in concert. That was in 1978.

Seeing the commercial made me want to go to You Tube and listen to it all the way through (and with the video of the band). When I did, I found it only sparked the aforementioned idea (which is likely not a novel one, just that it had only then occurred to me).

Sooooo, I have put together a You Tube concert, of sorts. The first in the (what is sure to be) sporadic No Ticket Series concerts.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

The Beach Boys...

Beach Boys - Little Deuce Coupe

Beach Boys-Good Vibrations

Beach Boys - California Girls

The Beach Boys - Wouldn't It Be Nice

Sloop John B

Beach Boys-In My Room


The Beach Boys - Surfer Girl

Beach Boys - Don't Worry Baby

The Beach Boys - Help Me, Rhonda

God Only Knows

Time to go home now! Hope you enjoyed the show and if you have artist requests, let me know.

Never heard that song before, Tony. Can't say it's a favorite, but I appreciate you sharing it. And I kinda like that you threw it in as an "encore". Quite fitting!

Of those I posted I probably am partial to "Don't Worry, Baby", "Wouldn't it be Nice", and "Fun, Fun, Fun", more than the others, but also have a pretty fond appreciation of "God Only Knows", too.

This was a fun exercise. I'll definitely be doing it again.

The song was one of the ones that stuck with me from "Smile" (the other being a slightly altered version of "Good Vibrations") You probably already know this story, Tammy, but for those of you just tuning in, "Smile" was originally supposed to be a Beach Boys record released in January 1967. First the Beatles released "Rubber Soul", which inspired Brian Wilson to create "Pet Sounds", which inspired "Sgt. Pepper", and "Smile" was to be the response to that. Unfortunately, the other Beach Boys and Wilson's personal problems shelved the album. Check out the Wikipedia entry for more!
