Just found this guy on youtube

Playing bar on a cruise he pulls of a great version of Funky Pretty! He's uploaded some nice BB covers (including Disney Girls!)
We need to comment and like that clip Smiley

Thanks so much for posting this! Man when he hits those chorus sections (and the coda) that song just comes alive! Funky Pretty is one of my favorite Brian Wilson songs ever, I think it is greatly under appreciated. Glad some others feel this song deserves some due.

The Beach Boys legacy is still being mortared to this day...it has a solid and unbreakable foundation of incredible songs that tower above most bands, yet some bricks are more brittle and ugly than others (even some bricks put down more recently)...thus is the nature of any entity that continues to exist. You are not defined solely by your good achievements in life, you're also defined by those unpleasant moments too. This law of life, thankfully, helps keep us all in check.

Really good, I like his phrasing. Talk about shining a new light on old songs ...

My thoughts exactly, Rab. I posted my comments on the video. There's a tavern down the road that features trios and a lot of single acts. I've actually requested a couple of the Boy's songs (on the back of a 20 dollar bill) and they were played and played well like this. So cool to hear material that isn't performed by every bar act every night.

Rab, I wish I could remember correctly but I think it was Darlin' and another single act only knew Sloop. Watch, someone will come in and play the whole Surf's Up album and I'll be home watching TV.  Roll Eyes

So great!!!! Is he playing it a bit faster than the actual track? That may be part of it...just a little more up-tempo, and WHAM! A moody, moogy song riding just under its true potential suddenly comes alive...  3D

We need a "Bill Forrest Does Holland" album. As Jack Rieley said, much of the LP was centered around that piano they found in Baambrugge, and a piano-based series of covers from start to finish would be a helluva lotta fun.
