Do It Yourself SMiLE SMiLE
A.K.A. Making SMiLE Using Only Official Releases
Note: Note: this is what I call a "Do It Yourself" 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: "I'm In Great Shape", "Child Is the Father of the Man", "The Elements" and "The Old Master Painter" have never been released officially.

Using only the GV Box set, the Wild Honey and Smiley Smile CD's, you can create a makeshift SMiLE:

  • Our Prayer [GV Box set - CD 2, track #18]
  • Heroes and Villains [GV Box set - CD 2, track #24]
  • Do You Like Worms [GV Box set - CD 2, track #25]
  • Wonderful [GV Box set - CD 2, track #21]
  • Mama Says (Makeshift-I'm In Great Shape) Wild Honey CD, track #11]
  • Heroes and Villains (Pt.2) [GV Box set - CD 2, track #20]
  • Cabinessence [GV Box set - CD 2, track #22]
  • Good Vibrations [GV Box set - CD 2, track #17]

  • Makeshift-Elements:
  • Vegetables [GV Box set - CD 2, track #26]
  • Wind Chimes [GV Box set - CD 2, track #21]
  • Fall Breaks and Back to Winter [Smiley Smile CD, track #3] (Not really "Fire", but has a similar bass line)
  • I Love to Say Da Da [GV Box set - CD 2, track #27]

  • Surf's Up [GV Box set - CD 2, track #28] (Brian's "demo")
  • Surf's Up [GV Box set - CD 3, track #28]
