September Gurls - Mike on verses, Carl on chorus

Reckon Al do could the lot? I don't hear Mike on it at all, tbh.

Blondie would do a rippin' The Ballad Of El Goodo, now I think of it...

All roads lead to Kokomo. Exhaustive research in time travel has conclusively proven that there is no alternate universe WITHOUT Kokomo. It would've happened regardless.

Wishin' You Were Here with Dennis on lead

I agree with that.

Hasn`t Al recorded a cover of this song?

I Want To Know What Love Is - Foreigner

Sounds like it could fit perfectly on BB85. I think Carl would've nailed the lead vocal.

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.

'All I Have To Do Is Dream' would've been pretty great, I think.

A band called The Beach Boys are mostly going to be a fun in the sun-themed group. And that has, is, and will always be just as it should. There needs to be ONE classic band that isn't a pack of endless "artistic" moan. All people wanna do is make The Beach Boys into another Beatles they are less tired of.
And, for anyone who has actually experienced them, surfing and cars carry PLENTY of emotion and life experience. They can carry as much metaphor as any Van Dyke Parks clever epistle.

Bohemian Rhapsody would have been ace. Especially the intro and opera section.

The Residents "The Man In The Dark Sedan" (very cool tune! Mike on lead, doing his best "Monster Mash" imitation. And don't forget the awkward choreography)

fun - Some Nights (the only song I like from this modern group. Bruce sings the lead & the other Boys on the background)

Camper Van Beethoven - The Light from A Cake (Brian in his 70s damaged voice about his favorite confectionery theme)

And "Hang on Sloopy (Sloopy Hang on)" with (of course) Mike as a main singer. One of my ultimate fave 60s tunes.

Musetta's Waltz

With an early surf harmony (think Lonely Sea), not the very dense rock harmony that came after.

I, I bet I know what shes like, and I can feel how right shed be for me. Its weird how she comes in so strong, and I wonder what shes picking up from me. I hope its good, good, good, good vibrations, yeah!!

Listening to "Who Knows What Love Is" by Strawberry Switchblade makes me think of how lovely a Beach Boys cover could have been. Maybe Carl on lead with Mike, Brian and Bruce doing background vocals?

Surfer Dan by The Turtles which is technically a Beach Boys type of parody in the first place.  BB would have made it a fun track and probably better with their harmonic blend.

Tracey Ullman "They Don't Know" http://youtu.be/DfRI1XjDFCU

I heard the song the other day and thought of The Beach Boys! I'd like to hear Brian do a Spectorian production on this one, maybe bring in Hal for the drums, add some Beach Boys' harmonies, with Brian singing the lead in his "Matchpoint" voice. police

I never liked that version & it's chiefly due to Tracey's whiney voice. Give me original by Kirsty MacColl any time: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kIsyQ2qCDQ8
Not only it has great vocals, also fabtastic guitar solo in the middle. I'd like The BBs cover to be based on this one version.
