1989
  January   "Melt Away/Being With The One You Love" is Brian's second, and equally unsuccessful, single
  taken from the album.
  May   Brian contributes "Daddie's Little Girl" to the She's Out Of Control soundtrack album.
  summer   Brian begins recording his second solo album: initially titled Brian before being renamed Sweet
  Insanity, both versions presented to Sire (in 1990 and 1991) are rejected by the company on
  the grounds of  Landy's lyrics and the inclusion of "Smart Girls", a lame rap.
  June   Brian guests on "The Spirit Of The Forest", an all-star charity single in aid of preserving the
  world's rainforests.
  August   Still Cruisin' is released on Capitol. A curious mixture of new material and BB tracks used in
  movie soundtracks, it charts at #46. Title track "Still Cruisin'" (backed with "Kokomo")
  becomes the bands lowest ever charting 45 at #93 (and their last chart single to date).
  September   Brian instigates a $100 million lawsuit to recover the publishing rights that Murry Wilson signed
  away in 1969, allegedly without his knowledge.
  November   remixed album track "Somewhere Near Japan" (backed with "Kokomo" - again) is a chart
  miss.
