Probably not underrated by hardcore fans, but:

Good shout with "Day in the Life of a Tree" - shouldn't work at all but somehow does! I'll nominate "The Surfer Moon", "Getting Hungry" and "Busy Doin' Nothing".

At the moment, I can't stop listening to (and singing all day) "She Knows Me Too Well" and "Let Him Run Wild". Awesome, awesome songs.

"Please let me wonder"
"The warmth of the sun"
"All I wanna do"

And of course "Getcha back" which I don't even remember being released here in the U.K.(Maybe because I was in Germany with the RAF at that time)But surely their best harmony track of later years.

I often think Drive-In gets overlooked from the early days, as does Amusement Parks USA, two great tracks. Vegetables is a terrific song, while from the later years, Pitter Patter is a gem.

I'd vote for "Male Ego". Originally a "B-Side, it has a vey infectious melody.

Another underated gem is "I Wanna Pick You Up."

"All I Wanna Do" is like proto-chill wave music...decades ahead of its time. One of the most underrated although it has a great reputation amongs fans, just that it's kind of forgotten sometimes. Also, "Surfer Moon" is flawless from beginning to end. No idea why that one isn't held in as high a regard as a lot of their earlier stuff.

My favorite underrated track has to be "Lonely Sea"...it's so interesting and dark that I could listen to it hundreds of times and never get sick of it. There's just so much depth behind it and, frankly, it's one of their most gorgeous early tracks.

The Lonely Sea is a great song, I often wonder how much of it is Brian.
It's credited to Gary Usher/Brian Wilson. Usually the composer is credited
first and the lyricist second, whatever a great track.

This one is for Viper. You have to get in the shower and sing along to truly appreciate it.

I think you mean All I Want to Do, All I Wanna Do is a different song.

Amusements Parks USA, if ever there was a BB track that deserves the stereo
treatment it's this one.

I agree completely with Surfer Moon and Lonely Sea. Two great surfer songs.
