In anticipation of Darren's titanic Battle of the Decade (which deserves a catchy name, not necessarily this one), this is my personal top ten from back in 2012.

The five that are retired and will compete (in alphabetical order):

Don't Worry, Baby
Good Vibrations
In My Room
Surf's Up
Wouldn't It Be Nice

The five that aren't and won't (also in alphabetical order):

California Girls
Caroline No
I Just Wasn't Made For These Times
Kiss Me, Baby
Let Him Run Wild

I bet someone else has such a list.

Can't really argue with any of these - but I will next week. [rolleyes]

Thank you, Verden[smile]

Thanks, Al. And I'm looking forward to your votes in the really big one. [thumb]

Larry, the version of 'Surf's Up' that won Season VII is from The Smile Sessions

It's a very different mix to the track on the Surf's Up LP. Plus a different lead singer!

But I think you may have come up with the name for next week's battle. It's winning so far. [smile]

Not surprised at all with this list. I expect a list that will be very difficult to parse other than an equal tie all around.

I have mine broken into:  1) The Essentials (all from Pet Sounds/Smile era)  2)  Classic Beach Boys (beach, surf, and sand) 3)  Those that you may have heard enough of!

A great big CONGRATULATIONS to Larry Franz for winning the gold for season 10!  Also, a really big CONGRATULATIONS to Mr. Darren J. Ray for winning a twofer - Silver and Bronze and both for Beatles songs!  You are truly a jack of all trades!  

Thank you Darren for all the hard work you do managing the Battle of the Bands' stats and also thank you to all those who check the hosts' links prior to battle.  We couldn't do this without you!

So, is there going to be a season 11?  If so, when will you put up the sign up sheet for hosting?

Goodbye Season 10.  It was fun!
