I think a triple tracked Al would have been great!! No doubt he couldn't have
executed it well.
BUT! I agree, Mike owns this one.  It's everything Mike brings to the stage
that is in the song.  Can't imagine anyone else it would be 'better' suited for.

It's as much Mike's lead as 'God Only Knows' is Carl's.

Wow, I just love the vibe of the whole track. It has this 90's feel to it but could also stand well in this era. I'd love to hear some singing over it versus rapping but thats just me haha

Every chorus falsetto on Good Timin' they just give me chills, really fun to sing as well. It's Carl isn't it? Unless my ears deceive me

What drives me nutz  is he is  singing flat when he starts the song.  I never understood why they didn't fix at least that line.

He sounds spot on to me.

I'm probably going to be the only one to vote for this, but here it is: She's Leaving Home. It's probably in my top 3-4 on the album anyway.

I've always had an odd "relationship" with Lucy. The opening keyboard (which sounds completely awesome, both the melody/hook and the tone quality) and the vocals through the word "eyes" send shivers down my spine and, if I'm in the right mood, tears down my cheeks and is one of the most awesome vocal-keyboard interactions ever. But then starting with the word "cellophane" it goes downhill. The refrain is good, however, though not a knockout. So basically about 1/8 of the song is "world class" and the rest is "pretty good."

Day In The Life is good but was never one of my top songs on the album, usually in the middle of my personal ranking.

Folks go to those shows [the current rendition of the Beach Boys] to hear the Beach Boys body of work.  That Mike has agreed to allow l.p. tracks like Farmer's Daughter and Betsy into the show requires a tip of the hat to Scott [Totten] because these 'things' would not and could not be accomplished without say the very least.  They add to the show imho.

To go to the merch table and find some nondescript c.d. featuring an onslaught of songs never-to-fore heard by anyone in [normal] captivity along with that questionable attempt at 'songage'...Pieces has to be bruther...where the hell did I hear THAT before???  [and why am I hearing it again?]...won't sell 100 units per show.  If they GAVE them away...1/2 of 'em'd hit the ground or garbage before the car doors were unlocked.  1/2 of the remaining discs would hit the pavement on the way home...tossed out the window in disgust.  1/2 of those which made it from point A to point B would end up in the garbage or be offered up for a buck/50 cents in a yard sale.

Further to that ... if and when people get it home and eventually toss it on 'the player'...just exactly how many tickets will that 'attempt' at doin' music sell?  Dang close to 0.   [O.K. ...maybe 3 or 4 a show...after a close inspection followed by the obvious is this sh*t?]  It might, though, have an extremely negative impact on moving tickets for the 'groups' return in 2 or 3 years.  Anyone mildly interested has heard the musical celebration that is Michael Edward over these many years.  [and that celebration shyte was gawd-awwwwwwwwwwwful and entirely disappointing back when I had no bone to pick with the arsehole which would emerge, for all to see, from under that incessant  baseball cap.]

The guy with the least amount of talent shouldn't be tarnishing his own image anymore than he already has.  He spends enough time doing it to Brian/Carl/Dennis in front of anyone who'll hold a mic or a pencil and pad up to his yap.  He doesn't need to further bury himself and chase away all of the remaining girls who still show up for the " BB's" by issuing anything likely and accurately best named "Yikes!!!"
w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t!

California Girls features one of Mike's definitive lead vocals.

Though, I wouldnt mind Brian handing it off to Al in concert.  Though, with the song being the opener, it would be odd for Brian to not sing it.

There is of course the anecdote to the effect that Brian was angry because he felt that Mike "rushed" the vocal. Don't remember the origin and it is a fine performance IMO but there are a few moments when it seems to me that he may have had a point.
