To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Here's a cover of Please Let Me Wonder by The King's Singers - the full thing can be found on Spotify. Eerily, the lead singer is a dead ringer for Bruce in his prime.

That's so wild. I didn't even think to search it on the board because I thought it was just a crazy coincidence. Thanks!

It's John Sebastian's guide vocal over Keith Moon's track for his "Don't Worry Baby" cover from Two Sides of the Moon. I guess it's "better", even if it is only a guide vocal, though he doesn't sound very enthusiastic about it at any point... LOL

Been surfing the net for more BBs covers & found Wild Honey by Nazareth (1st time I heard this band). Here's an mp3 I uploaded: http://www.sendspace.com/file/ybrtqz

I'm a fan of covers that don't sound like complete copycats, so it's good by me. Of course, the original is better & who can top Carl anyway, however I think the singer nailed it really well & distorted guitar was pretty cool. Nice replacement for theremin.

I think this is the first time Bobby Vee's contemporary (1966) cover of "Here Today" has been on Youtube. I rate it higher than The Beach Boys' version. Note the slight lyric variation - "bit of a whirl" replaces "good love with her".

Thanks to both of you. I love hearing Beach Boys cover from times when the songs were still new.

2EgoHanger: fyi, Vee's "Here Today" cover was posted on YT a good chunk of times, it's been referenced on the board not once. As to your 2nd point, give me the original any time soon! Dislike Bobby's voice immensely.

2bgas: now, this is some cool find; I'd never have thought someone have made a cover of this utterly rare BBs song. Already downloaded it to my Winamp-collection. Not a bad singing too. Thanks very much!

Recently, I found this channel on YT by a user "posturex1" from Arkansas & gotta say the guy has a knack for doing covers, note-for-note or differed. Check the BBs playlist:

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL67E1CF135318DAA8 - I enjoyed his "Little Saint Nick" & "Monster Mash", it's fun & quite authentic. (As an off-top, I also dug the "Go All the Way" (The Raspberries) video, jolly good!)
