*****
Cool summer hit.....from Aruba to Jamaica :)
****
Good, but far away from "I Get Around", my personal number 1 of them.
****

*****
Good...
*****
Cheesy classic from the late 80's, they should've left this one right alone!

I've come to like this a lot more now 3 ----> 5

no, it's hideous and wrong on so many levels... YUCKx10
*****
A great classic and a return to form for The Beach Boys. A great singable melody. A justifiable #1 hit. Has a great summer feel to it.
***
not too bad, but not the greatest song from the beach boys. a very summery song though!

cool song for back then
****
I quite like it.
******
I love it. The cool laid-back vibe to the whole thing is just perfect at times.
***
Not great but passable.
**
Annoying and very daggy .
******
So good.
*****
Brilliant. A big comeback hit for them in '88/89. Don't find it cheesy at all.

I don't like this song so much
**
Really cheesy and bad.
**
Have to agree with MitchellNineSeven on this one. Not very good, and cheesy in my opinion.
**
NO!
******
My favourite Beach Boys song, I don't care if it is cheesy, it has a great vibe and the melody is so damn catchy.
**
I'm not really a fan of this one to say the least.
***
3 stars
**
Awful!
***
Average track...after The Beach Boys co-founder and resident genius Brian Wilson quit the band, this was the first product to be released by the band...a global smash hit and the groups first no.#1 single since the 1966 hit "Good Vibrations".

That said, it's a nostalgic turd pile (something Brian was not cool with, hence leaving), the production and performance is good...but it's the quality of the tune and it' lack of depth musically that makes this record so inferior too so much of their earlier work...
***
It's OK. Not bad.
