Endless Summary: Vol. 5 – Shut Down, Vol. 2

One-sentence capsule summaries of Beach Boys songs, album by album.
  1. "Fun Fun Fun": A girl borrows her father's Ford Thunderbird under false pretenses, and he repossesses it upon uncovering her deception, but Mike would be pleased to give her a ride in his car.
  2. "Don't Worry Baby": Brian, whose boasting about his car has resulted in his being challenged to a race, is worried that he's gotten in over his head, but his girlfriend assures him that things will turn out okay.
  3. "In the Parkin' Lot": Mike and his girlfriend always show up early for school to make out in his car.
  4. "'Cassius' Love vs. 'Sonny' Wilson": Bickering in lieu of singing, Brian makes fun of Mike's nasal voice while Mike claims Brian sounds like Mickey Mouse.
  5. "The Warmth of the Sun": Brian is sad because his girlfriend broke up with him.
  6. "This Car of Mine": Dennis has an old car that he's fixed up nicely, and he's pretty fond of it.
  7. "Why Do Fools Fall in Love?": Brian covers the hit by Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers.
  8. "Pom-Pom Play Girl": Carl says the head cheerleader uses her looks to enhance her social standing.
  9. "Keep an Eye on Summer": Brian longs for his freshman year of college to be over so he can see his high-school sweetheart during summer vacation.
  10. "Shut Down, Part II": The boys play an instrumental, with Mike on saxophone.
  11. "Louie Louie": Mike carefully enunciates the unintelligible Kingsmen hit.
  12. "Denny's Drums": Dennis plays a drum solo.

I don't know, Pete. This edition doesn't seem as interesting as the previous ones.

Yeah, you probably read the placeholder text I put in at 11:59. I wanted a Friday update, even if it wasn't Friday by the time I was done.

And it would have worked if it weren't for those meddling me.

Let's just put our differences aside and form a hockey team.

Do you think an NHL 2005 team could make a play for the Dominion of Canada Challenge Cup?

I don't see that that would be a problem. I think the all-black roster I've made for the Oilers could take a run at it.
