A touching and tender song and this fellow does a decent job with it. At the first few notes, and with his reverb and headphones and all, I thought he might be a pro - and therefore not qualified to be #14 in our homemade Beach Boys cover countdown. But I am glad to say that he switches a few lyrics around right up front and is tentative here and there with the guitar and melody in a way that only makes everything better, seems in fact like a guy by himself who is just putting things out there, which is what we appreciate and enjoy. And he has a nice voice. Oh, and in the fascinating repeated phrases starting about two minutes in, he almost puts us in a musical trance. And I love how slow it is and how dedicated he is to how slow it is.
