The Beach Boys Medley singleYoutubeA (badly edited) medley of "Good Vibrations"/"Help Me, Rhonda"/"I Get Around"/"Shut Down"/"Surfin' Safari"/"Barbara Ann"/"Surfin' U.S.A."/"Fun, Fun, Fun". This is in fact an edit of the much longer "Up Tempo" medley, but with half the songs. The shorter edit is in the listen links, while a slightly longer French version can be listened to here here, if for some reason you want an extra minute.
