Title: Rolling Beach Boys covers thread
Post by: hypehat on June 30, 2010, 09:13:34 AM
Because a lot of these get lost on the Youtube thread, here should be a nice place to compile youtubes, spotify links, and whatnot.

Starting with this adorably drunk one from the late Alex Chilton....

Who of course also did 'I Wanna Pick You Up'....
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-ozrPuM2Xs&feature=channel

And a recent live cover of 'Wouldn't It Be Nice'

Anyone remember the name of the original "Fairytale" that was produced by David (?) Foster, who also gets a co-credit on GIOMH ? Is it on youtube?

"Is There A Chance" (David Foster, Brian Wilson, Linda Thompson Jenner), from Foster´s CD "River Of Love" (1990).

This had me doing a Wikipedia search for Pat Boone, and I was quite astonished to see that he'd starred in a 1967 movie called "The Penis of Pauline". However, as I moved closer to the screen I saw that it said "Perils", not "Penis".  :smokin

I like the key change in Little Honda, or should I say the higher energy the entry to the third verse gets because of it. The BBs version doesn't need it, but here it's a welcome change.

Post by: the captain on March 04, 2011, 04:34:47 PM


Who is Golden Smog, by the way?
A "supergroup" (tongue in cheek, even by the members, I'd guess) side project that has at times included guys from Wilco, Jayhawks, Replacements, Soul Asylum, the Honeydogs, and other mostly midwestern rock or alt-country rock types of bands. Jeff Tweedy, of course, is the connector between the past few covers of L&M. He, I think both as Wilco and Golden Smog, performed it at assorted then-candidate Obama rallies before the last U.S. presidential election, but had also recorded it earlier.

Yesterday I was watching Brian Wilson Presents Pet Sounds Live and it came to 'I Know There's An Answer' and Brian said it really had Bob Dylan-esque lyrics. I started listening to it and saw the connection. Then I wondered what it would sound like if Dylan covered it....then I decided to do an acoustic cover myself...

Instead of being solely an acoustic cover it turned out to be a mix of Bob Dylan, Dick Dale, and The Beach Boys all rolled into one.

Terrible.. This songs about Charle Manson??????

Is that blatant disrespect and "please slap me til my face is tolerable" shtick just their thing/an inside joke that I'm obviously not in on? For what it was, their cover wasn't as repulsive as I thought it would be (though they obviously wish they were the Ramones and that just made me want to hear the actual Ramones do it instead) but the "this song's about Charles Manson"  ::) and "I can't f'in stand the Beach Boys"  :o comments really rubbed me the wrong way. Just curious if they're *that* ignorant of where Sloop John B came from or were trying to be clever. I'd always heard good things about this band but was quite turned off by this clip.

Been surfing the net for more BBs covers & found Wild Honey by Nazareth (1st time I heard this band). Here's an mp3 I uploaded: http://www.sendspace.com/file/ybrtqz

I'm a fan of covers that don't sound like complete copycats, so it's good by me. Of course, the original is better & who can top Carl anyway, however I think the singer nailed it really well & distorted guitar was pretty cool. Nice replacement for theremin.

2EgoHanger: fyi, Vee's "Here Today" cover was posted on YT a good chunk of times, it's been referenced on the board not once. As to your 2nd point, give me the original any time soon! Dislike Bobby's voice immensely.

2bgas: now, this is some cool find; I'd never have thought someone have made a cover of this utterly rare BBs song. Already downloaded it to my Winamp-collection. Not a bad singing too. Thanks very much!

Recently, I found this channel on YT by a user "posturex1" from Arkansas & gotta say the guy has a knack for doing covers, note-for-note or differed. Check the BBs playlist:

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL67E1CF135318DAA8 - I enjoyed his "Little Saint Nick" & "Monster Mash", it's fun & quite authentic. (As an off-top, I also dug the "Go All the Way" (The Raspberries) video, jolly good!)

Continuing with another batch of covers:

Bill Frisell - Surfer Girl (at the Fretboard journal) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnDZ7yb5g-c) - from his latest album; Bill talks about how it was the 1st single he ever bought. Cool to hear SG in a jazz mode.

Randler Music - I Get Around (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPDiq8l0J7w) - pretty rad for a gang of youngsters. Listen to the guitar solo & short vocal bit after the final chorus ("Get around. Get Around. I Get Aro-o-ound!!!").

I Get Around multitrack cover (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zg-uunx5wGY&list=RDgPDiq8l0J7w) - interesting version, slightly slowed down but it works!

The Who - Barbara Ann (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8hKo42x-eQ&list=PL1C6D71A7A39086C0) - not the one found on Brian's Mojo tribute, it's an actual rehearsal clip. Fun to watch.

Kosovo, Kokomo parody (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y9r0zm4surY) - as you see from the title, yes, the lyrics are altered. All the names of places, at least.


It's no secret punk groups are big fans of The BBs & oftentimes perform their songs. Here's some gems from different years:

Ramones - Surfin' Safari (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTGr9f5yPCY) - always loved this band & esp. the lead singer's voice

Vandals - Kokomo (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZKqVuxRn0M) - fantastic what they did with the original, I'd've never imagined hearing this islandic tune done as punk.

The Tidal Waves - Fun, Fun, Fun (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UYxlPYFNi8c)

The Veterans - Be True To Your School (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZS5q1xfPOyU) - complete with cheerleader calls, yep.

The Queers - Don't Back Down (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwIOw6bD_3Q)

For dessert, the 1965 Estonian cover of "Then I Kissed Her": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JzfW3Y2lDaU
It's not technically a BBs song, but the singer is a guy so I thought to bring it here anyway.

The Troggs decided to make their version  of GV their own; That's perfect!
ABSOLUTELY NO reason for everyone to sound exactly like the BBs just to please you, RRa1.
But, in any case, there are similarities in the songs. Perhaps you simply didn't listen? 


Title: Re: Rolling Beach Boys covers thread

Okay, let me clarify it. I don't mind that their v-n discerns from the BBs', in fact I dislike it if musicians do note-for-note replica of original song. My real issue with the cover was the (godawful) lead & arrangement. The "not good" comment was clearly about this. And as for similarities, I did listen to it well enough & I still perceive it as totally different song, never recognize GV in it on the spot.

Today I was sorting out my mp3 library & guess what? I have an obscure 1968 cover of Good Vibrations! It's by "Jonna Gault & Her Symphonopop Scene". Need to say, a very polarizing record, you may not like what you hear. Still, it's a curious version, if a little whacked out, with the harmonies "sung" by the instruments.

Just stumbled upon this... I've never heard it before.  A jangly mid-60s cover of "Girl Don't Tell Me" by some obscure 13 year old singer.  I made it about halfway through and was about to hit the "x" button as I felt I'd heard enough, but then some very nice background vocals kicked in.  Makes me think about what this track might have sounded like with some more BB background vox.

Allmusic is fun. I typed "You're so good to me" in the search box to find the covers & this is what were the results*:

The Fireballs (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RXyCrk2nU9A) (don't mistake it with "Fireballs" sans "The", an Australian psychobilly band)

they also perform other BBs and Spector covers, including one of my fave Ronettes, Do I Love You? :

AND, in fact, I was surprised by the number of artists that have covered Guess I'm Dumb!      https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=guess+Im+dumb
I especially liked this live version by The Comeuppance featuring a cello:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tlt02unoMtg

They also did "Don't Run Away", Bruce & Terry cover: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bfg6XZedFpo

Awful vocals, very shaky, like she didn't rehearse at all, at times it goes off-pitch. In other videos of DRA she sings just as bad.

And of course, she didn't & couldn't do any justice to Glen Campbell's version. But at least she tried?

I just type in the song title (maybe with "beach boys") and look what turns up. Or I go to wikipedia if I want to have some infos for a specific song. They also mention cover versions. Usually I don't put much work or effort in it though. Sometimes they just pop up or I read about them.

Ward has done a lot of Wilson/Beach Boys, including an instrumental of "You Still Believe in Me" on an earlier solo record (Transistor Radio, I think?) and some others with She & Him, as well as obviously participating in No Pier Pressure.

Perhaps you could check the free previews on iTunes, Amazon, or whatever other services are available to you to get a feel for it. Since it is out for purchase (at least here), I'd guess the previews are available as well. Perhaps it's up on Spotify by now, too, I'm not sure.

Rare 60s cover of GV by Electric Piano Playground (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_5tcwgkrbw). This is what Larry said about the band's name:

Quote
I finally tracked it down and was surprised to discover that the ‘electric’ in the title was not as much a descriptor of the piano involved, but more along the lines of mid-60s ‘turned on’ nomenclature, i.e. the piano was “electric”, just not an electric piano, if you follow (I wouldn’t blame you for being confused).

I like the review by some chap: "Not the Norman Blake I was expecting." (bluegrass guitarist)

Norman is BBs fan, check the topic "Famous Beach Boys fans". Hailey is Australian nu-soul musician as per wiki (I didn't know who she was). She sings Mike's vocal gospel style, there's even 2 back-up female singers doing synchronic moves like in real gospel the ladies backing the singer would. Anyhoo, check it out! :3d

Post by: Ziggy Stardust on March 06, 2017, 02:44:18 AM
So this is the right thread for the BBs covers right?

Here's some cool picks rarely mentioned, real shame:


Ava Cherry & The Astronettes - God Only Knows
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wFNBVo52uBw

There's an interesting backstory to this, it goes way back to the 70's iirc the whole thing basically is the main singer Ava Cherry used to play in a club with her band in London Bowie would always check out, he ended up hooking with the singer and taking her on his Young Americans tour as backup and then wanted to produce and make an album for her and her band, did songs together and covers, including this one, in a much more soul take which is an idea from Bowie himself as it is believe he has always thought God Only Knows was a soul song deep down in its roots, interesting

In the end the sessions went into too much different directions and it got cancelled and unreleased for decades.


Christopher Holland - Funky Pretty
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTmjJ6vkGe0

This dude is the son of Jools Holland! this is from his 2012 album "Corner Green"


Suzzy & Maggie Roche - A Day In The Life Of A Tree
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pXZPpAnJxm4

Now this sounds just adorable, miles above the Yo La Tengo one (yeah they covered that one too, but stick to the Little Honda trust me)


The Rubinoos ‎- Heroes & Villains
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GnfqgzcVmjM

The Rubinoos are such a cool power pop band we never bring up anymore, and they did this crazy good a capella cover!


Hefner - You Need a Mess of Help to Stand Alone
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWxmKKt3m4Y

Released as a B-Side to their single "The Hymn For The Cigarettes" in 1999, a more raw indie interpretation, played like that, it comes off very surfin' usa! pretty rad


Will C - Had to Phone Ya
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FfJNIIR_LoI

Found this randomly, no idea who it is??? but very nice, there is another Beach Boys cover on his albuum i believe, it's titled "Almost Summer '78" and it was released in 2014


The Telescopes - Never Learn Not To Love You
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5DF0hZYdI0

From their 1990 EP "Everso"


The Honeys, David Marks, Carnie And Wendy Wilson, Carl B Wilson, John Tiven, Jez Graham, Stacey Keach & Rachel And The Reindeerz - California Feelin'
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKN_9f_QPBU

Wait what...?! how have i never heard of this before??!! oh well, doesn't sound really good anyway..


Solomon Burke - Soul Searchin'
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w-AUPzurfDM

How is it we never bring this up? the album won an grammy, and for christ sake, it's Solomon Burke himself coverng Soul Searchin'! what a crazy world.


Medicine - 'Til I Die
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAyvHZXgodI

A cool noisy take on this classic, it amazes me how somehow this song got a new cult within the 90's, everyone started to cover it and i have no idea where this came from or brought it up out of the blue, as it was alerady beginning before the I Just Wasn't Made For These Times release, i figure maybe the Good Vibrations boxset but that seems too vage, it's filled with stuff for people to all together stop on a song, as amazing it is of course, however i don't doubt the success of that boxset since even Daft Punk showcases that they owned it inside their first album Homework or how there also has been some covers of Still I Dream Of It following this


Kat Edmonson - I Just Wasn't Made For These Times
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pULGJ7IqwA

Found this by pure coincidence, smooth, kinda sounds like what if Norah Johns covered it i guess?


JP Haynie - At My Window
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKAu1AqJUsM

From this Sunflower tribute album from 2016 i think? i found on bandcamp which brings together indie artists but also stars BMX Bandits (who we know who big fans they are) thought the keys was adorable here (also i don't know if you guys heard about it (sorry my first time postin' in years) but there's also a very good Smiley Smile tribute album made by indie peeps from Portland)


Sal Valentino - Angel Come Home
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eWZYU2pi4WE

Cause there is never enough love in the world for this song !!!


Gazelle Twin - Love and Mercy
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sUlVo-jvG1o

I'm not big on this whole trend of doing covers for trailers, tv shows, games, movies or whatever and make it sound dark or whatnot (remember that bad cover of California Dreamin' for that San Andreas movie? ugh) but this! well first of all, what a cool choice, anything to make a boost to that beautiful song, and this cover compliments the composition, i like it

And more:

Top Dreams - Feel Flows
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OM3AQ93Rfps

Very modern indie electro take on it, thought it was so cool! even cooler how it's a real shame this song is barely ever covered, which is crazy with the popularity it got since it's played in Almost Famous, people should honor Carl more, this is such a great composition


Kate Campbell - Add Some Music To Your Day
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vPTD340Nbw

Some country take on that one, pretty nice and fitting, feels good to find some pro covers of that song!


Bic Runga - The Lonely Sea
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j1IuZRtzUE0

From last year i believe, very nice


Greg Davis - At My Window
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCuSUabqplg

As good as the previous cover of that song i posted


Daryll Ann - 4th Of July
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AeWN-yDdBXQ

I swear it is! i know, it's so different, i had to double check it, but it is indeed credited as the Dennis Wilson composition! a very jazzy bossanova re interpretation
now if only there were other cool pro artist recorded cover of songs such as All This Is That, In The Back Of My Mind, I'll Bet He's Nice, The Night Was So Young, My Diane, Melt Away, Ro Grande etc....

We somehow never bring it up, but one of all time classic shoegaze band Lush has once recorded for an EP a studio cover of .... Fallin' In Love by Dennis!

Thanks for these, nice to see new names digging BBs.

"Don't Worry Baby" by 60s band Fun & Games (Houston,TX): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6rH-xvazds
Not as lush vocally but nice sunshine pop. Check the Elephant Candy LP produced by Gary Zekley.

I don't know if any of you are into Hip Hop or electro, but the Beach Boys are quite sampled to pretty cool beats!

Xzibit - Highest Form Of Understanding
https://youtu.be/ZQovr36y7mM
Produced by Xzibit himself, makes a really badass use of Good Vibrations verses

K. Sparks & Jeff Chery - I Bet He's Nice
https://youtu.be/ZXTwgqH7Jmw
This one has to be the craziest, a song that is based around, you've read it, I'll Bet He's Nice! the whole text takes from the title and the samples are all over the track, amazing

C-Mon & Kypski - Air Play
https://youtu.be/Go6XdmQCpkU
This one uses some of the narration of the Mount Vernon and Fairway, who would've thought???

Minamina Goodsong - Soul Missiles
https://youtu.be/0t_16JrcmhY
Fresh song based on a Feel Flows sample !!!!

Kids & Explosions - You're Good
https://youtu.be/lw8NJpbgBIc
It's heavily turning around samples of Where Is My Mind mixed into Is This It but with the lead guitar of You're So Good To Me dropping on top of it, which gives the title to the song

death’s dynamic shroud.wmv - プライベートアイランド
https://youtu.be/yyr4zLVpOVk
Some pure Vaporwave music which uses Somewhere Near Japan!

Kev Brown - Listen
https://youtu.be/WNdfdvxDQSw
Yep, Don't Talk :)

The Pen Friend Club-- Guess I'm Dumb  2013  

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9poPcz3rZ4  


they also perform other BBs and Spector covers, including one of my fave Ronettes, Do I Love You? :  

https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=pen+friend+club

AND, in fact, I was surprised by the number of artists that have covered Guess I'm Dumb!      https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=guess+Im+dumb
I especially liked this live version by The Comeuppance featuring a cello:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tlt02unoMtg

This band is NOT all females, there's like two guys in it, and on every studio releases they have done since their debut in 2012 there's lots of Beach Boys covers, When I Grow Up, Please Let Me Wonder, Darlin', Sherry She Needs Me etc...

Jackie DeShannon who had Brian and Marilyn sang on Boat To Sail on her 1975 album "New Arrangement" covered Trader in 2001:

A Soul group covering Surfin' in 1963, very good lead:
https://youtu.be/h_NfjoOU_1c

And this more big band? cover of Surfin' USA from 1963 too by Bobby Rydell
https://youtu.be/JNb-e4fwfY0

Some cool jazzy instrumental cover (this time it does keeps the main melody to remind you, unlike the 4th Of July one!) of 'Til I Die from 2014:
https://youtu.be/tKcEBSVRRDQ

And a more cool normal indie cover of 'Til I Die here, you would think it's a new artist, but this is actually from 1992:
https://youtu.be/SfJIBg1fqC8

Tremolo Beer Gut, a surf modern instrumental band covering Pet Sounds, 1999:
