Fun, Fun, FunStatus Quo with The Beach BoysDon't Stop1996Youtube, SpotifyRecorded with The Beach Boys, including a new verse sang by Mike Love. Also released as a single, and has appeared on Beach Boys compilation albums.
God Only KnowsMonica ManciniI've Loved These Days2009Featured Brian Wilson on backing vocals.
God Only KnowsThe Impossible OrchestraGod Only Knows single2014Youtube, SpotifySupergroup whose single both launched BBC Music and raised money for BBC Children In Need. Went to number 20 in the UK charts (and strangely, number 10 in Israel). The supergroup featured Brian, as well as many other stars - for a full list see the artist page.
Good TimeAmerican SpringAmerican Spring1972YoutubeThe first version to be released - the song was originally recorded by The Beach Boys in 1970, and this uses that same backing track (and I think the backing vocals too). Hence, vocals aside, this sounds (and almost is) musically identical to the 1977 The Beach Boys Love You version.

Produced and arranged by Brian, with backing vocals by The Beach Boys.
Had To Phone YaAmerican SpringSpring...Plus1989YoutubeThis version actually predates The Beach Boys version - and so contains Diane's lyrics instead of Mike's. Recorded in 1972, and co-produced by Brian, this didn't see release until a 1989 reissue.
