17Feb05

One-sentence capsule summaries of Beach Boys songs, album by album.

  1. “Little Deuce Coupe” (previously appeared on Surfer Girl): Mike owns and enjoys operating a surprisingly fast 1932 Ford Coupe automobile.
  2. “Ballad of Ole’ Betsy”: Brian’s car is getting pretty old, but he still likes it.
  3. “Be True to Your School”: Mike has a great deal of school spirit, and thinks you should too.
  4. “Car Crazy Cutie”: Brian’s girlfriend is ideal, as she’s both pretty and an enthusiastic amateur car mechanic.
  5. “Cherry, Cherry Coupe”: Mike owns a one-of-a-kind hot rod that everyone admires.
  6. “409” (previously appeared on Surfin’ Safari): Mike likes his brand-new Chevy, which is extraordinarily fast.
  7. “Shut Down”(previously appeared on Surfin’ U.S.A.): Mike wins a car race.
  8. “Spirit of America”: Brian thinks the recent setting of a new land speed record by a jet-powered automobile at the Bonneville Salt Flats is pretty neat.
  9. “Our Car Club” (previously appeared on Surfer Girl): Mike and Brian plan to start a car club, which is kind of like a biker gang, except with hot rods.
  10. “No-Go Showboat”: Brian and Mike own a car that looks terrific, but is actually very slow.
  11. “A Young Man Is Gone”: The boys think James Dean’s fatal car crash is a real shame.
  12. “Custom Machine”: Mike owns a one-of-a-kind hot rod that he’d prefer you didn’t touch.
