Barbara Ann

Ba-Ba-Ba-Ba Babara Ann...yeah, you should know this classic hit by the Beach Boys, but I bet you haven't yet heard this cool cover version by Denver based Okoren feat. Stephen Henderson. Updating the track by giving it an easy going pop/electro/tropical vibe, turned out to be a freakin' good idea. Even though vocal chop is present (which I have started to think of in a negative way), the rest of the track still manages to give me the chills. Apart from the lyrics, there's not a lot left of the original Beach Boys vibe and that's actually a good thing. It gives the track its own profile and makes it stand out. Give it a spin below. Enjoy!
