Shotgun SMiLE



A Makeshift
SMiLE
Using
Only
Official
Releases




* Note: this is what I call a "shotgun" SMiLE, in which you get a makeshift SMiLE out of official releases. I borrowed the basic idea from David Beard's article in the March 1997 SMiLE Edition of Endless Summer Quarterly, even though I disagree with some of the tracks he uses. It is no way intended to be a definitive SMiLE! Like a shotgun blast, you hit about half of the target...

What we DO know are the titles of the songs intended for the album:

  • Do You Like Worms
  • Wind Chimes
  • Heroes and Villains
  • Surfs Up
  • Good Vibrations
  • Cabin Essence
  • Wonderful
  • I'm In Great Shape
  • Child Is the Father of the Man
  • The Elements
  • Vega-tables
  • The Old Master Painter

  • * Note: the tracks highlighted in yellow have never been released officially.
