We know, we know, another Buddy Holly cover. This year so far has seen 13 posts and counting on Buddy covers. We haven’t seen an artist get this much cover love since someone realized Lady Gaga sounded good on acoustic guitar. Still, this latest cover is worth another post. Brian Wilson covers “Listen to Me,” the title track of the latest tribute album, and it’s a perfect slice of beach pop.
Would you really expect anything less from Mr. Wilson though? Once that choral part hits, you discover his knack for creating “teenage symphon[ies] to God” hasn’t aged a bit. It’s exactly what you need to take you into the weekend with a smile on your face. Download it below, courtesy of Rolling Stone.
