I don't get why Mike or Brian or Al cover old BB songs they already sang lead on Huh  

Personally, I like Mike's choice of Rockaway Beach for his latest album and California Beach fits as well.    
Anyway,  in similar vein, for a new summer album, I nominate . . .  . .

'65 Love Affair by Paul Davis - do-wop do-wop ditty wop do . . .

PS  Paul Davis has several BB -esk tunes.   Love, or Let be be Lonely . . another possibility.

One Fine Day by the Chiffons, only cover it "Then I Kissed Her" style where they change the sexes around.

But I think Al and Brian dueting on this would be friggin cool.

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.

I think Steve Millerís Rock n Me would be a good cover for Mike, the singing style and lyrics are pure Love. I would also like to hear Mikeís vocal delivery on a cover of Reunionís Life Is a Rock (But the Radio Rolled Me), that would be interesting.

"Over the years, I've been accused of not supporting our new music from this era (67-73) and just wanting to play our hits. That's complete b.s......I was also, as the front man, the one promoting these songs onstage and have the scars to show for it."
