I've heard one version of the song with alternate lyrics. I remember one line was "There's magic in her eyes, that makes me come alive when she says..." right before the chorus. I can't remember who does it though.

That's The Tokens version.

How did Blondie "get back into the fold" and start touring with Brian?

The booklet for the Good Vibrations boxset suggests that "a number of songs for motion picture soundtracks (e.g. "Americathon", "Problem Child") that weren't hits" would be included on a "forthcoming Beach Boys Rarities collection".

So whatever happened to that?

You can view at least the frontpage of the site on the wayback machine:

Great find, RR. I'll pass it on to Mr. Cook (unless you have already).

I believe he's keeping foreign-language versions of BB-covered songs on hold for a future new section of his website.
Added to the list - Thanks JK and RR  Smiley

As JK says, I'm keeping covers (both English and foreign-language) on hold at the moment, since it turns out there is a lot more covers of Beach Boys originals than I thought, and I'd like to make a bigger dent in them before moving expanding my scope even more. I currently have 1352 covers and it still feels like a drop in the ocean - there are way more than I realised - currently 131 are in the non-English list.

I've added those Italian ones and the Spanish 'Til I Die also - thanks Pablo and STE.

Finally, this is off-topic, but I've also set up a Christmas page for those interested. https://christophercook.me.uk/beachboys/christmas.php

Not sure where this is from, but here is a live version of O Come All Ye Faithful from I assume the late 60s.

Some live stuff from 1977 has been uploaded over the past few weeks, including "A Casual Look" and a version of "Feel Flows" with a nearly 5 minute flute solo.
