Summer '81 single1981YoutubeMedley of "Surfer Girl"/"Fun, Fun, Fun"/"409"/"I Get Around"/"Dance, Dance, Dance"/"California Girls"/"Wouldn't It Be Nice"/"Help Me, Rhonda"/"Good Vibrations". Basically an attempt to see how many choruses you can fit into 4 minutes 18 seconds, the B-side was the same medley without the 14 seconds of "Surfer Girl" at the start.
