Endless Summary: Vol. 6 – All Summer Long

One-sentence capsule summaries of Beach Boys songs, album by album.
  1. "I Get Around": Mike and Brian are kings of the cool crowd, yet feel a certain ennui.
  2. "All Summer Long": Mike had a very good time with you this summer.
  3. "Hushabye": Brian and Mike sing you to sleep, covering the Mystics.
  4. "Little Honda": Mike plans to take you for a ride on his motorbike.
  5. "We'll Run Away": Brian agrees that you're both too young, but thinks you should elope anyway.
  6. "Carl's Big Chance": Carl plays a guitar instrumental.
  7. "Wendy": Mike is dejected because his girlfriend left him and screwed some other guy.
  8. "Do You Remember?": Mike and Brian would like to remind you of the contributions of Elvis, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Dick Clark, and Danny and the Juniors to the nascent art of rock and roll.
  9. "Girls on the Beach": The boys rewrite "Surfer Girl", harmonizing about easy girls at the seashore.
  10. "At the Drive-In": Mike really loves to go to the drive-in theatre.
  11. "Our Favorite Recording Sessions": The boys pad out the record's running time with bloopers and studio chatter.
  12. "Don't Back Down": Mike and Brian acknowledge that larger waves can be intimidating, yet they're still worth attempting to surf to impress girls.
