how do you do a box set now? I think those days are over. Everybody streams.

I think Honolulu Lulu was very deserving of a top 10 hit. The production is really strong. Of course, Sidewalk Surfin was strong as well

First of all, I love what Jan did with this song. It's a great production and an improvement on the BB album cut. But with that said, it was barely a Top 25 record and it plays on oldies stations about as much as Surf City and Little Old Lady. It plays more than DMC. which is crazy! It plays much more than Drag City and Honolulu lulu, which are Top 10 songs.

So what's the deal? Why so much attention for a song that was barely top 25 and Jan and Dean's 10th biggest hit?

I agree with you 100%. The lyrics needed help in 1965. Jan's music was great! But the lyrics just didn't get it to the next level.

Yes, I agree with Tomorrow's Teardrops, pre-accident and Sing Sang a Song post accident. Also, the flip side of Tomorrow's Teardrops is Jan's Midsummer Nights Dream in it's original form. The vocals aren't his best and it's under produced but there is something about it that I love.

well, he certainly achieved a lot after the accident. He showed that life goes on. and he opened that medical center, which was great!

I wanted to share my new video of this Jan and Dean parody.
Notice at the very end before the credits. You may recognize what we do is very similar to the end of the Jan and Dean Surf City video from 1963. lol

They played Honolulu Lulu. I think they are respecting Jan Berry's influence on Brian Wilson. That's awesome!

Yes I agree. keep playing them. The BB station plays all the Jan Berry/ Brian Wilson collaborations too. But to my knowledge, there was no BW involvement on Freeway Flyer and Mighty GTO. Also, they've played Little Old Lady. The connection there would probably be that the BB's covered it.

I heard Surf City a couple of days ago and they introduced it by saying Jan & Dean used the Wrecking Crew for this song and convinced Brian to do the same. So that was cool!!

It certainly sounds like it was completely re recorded. The sound is completely different.

Recently, the BB station has played Mighty GTO and Freeway Flyer. They usually just play the songs with Wilson involvement. Any idea why they played those 2 songs?
