Endless Summer track listing

"You're So Good to Me" is a song by American rock band The Beach Boys. It was originally released on June 5, 1965 by Capitol Records, on the album Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!). The track was later included as the B-side of the group's single "Sloop John B", which was released on March 21, 1966. MOJO later wrote that the song was the closest the group had come to northern soul.[3] Wilson wrote in 1990 that the track was "spearheaded by a guitar sent through a Leslie organ speaker. It gave it an eerie effect."[4]

The basic track for "You're So Good to Me" was recorded at Western Studios in early May 1965. Take 24 was used as the master. On May 24, the lead and backing vocals for the song were recorded at Columbia Studios.[5]
