So, it's last Friday, I'm down with a cold, I'm sitting down, relaxing, and listening to the recent Beach Boys compilation I made for someone.  "Good Vibrations" came on and I started singing along to it.  Now usually my voice craps out at the tail end (the last "na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na!") and my voice has never been able to hit that.  So the part is nearing and I tried singing it again, knowing full well I wouldn't hit it, but, then, much to my surprise... I did.  It sounded awful, but I hit it, which thrilled me enough.  Immediately, I thought of "Surf's Up" and how I've always wanted to hit that high F, so I put it on... and I hit that, for the first time ever... again, didn't sound good, but hitting it was enough for me and that alone made my day.  Instantly, I went to my recording program and laid down the vocals for the song and had to do a cover of it, so here it is, with just me on the piano.

It's a cover of the 1966 demo, from the "Good Vibrations" box set.  Brian's version has always been my favorite, by far. 

Enjoy!

That's pretty good.
Maybe add a bit of compression to the vocal track.  Wish i could still hit that note Shocked
