In My Room, a Beach Boys classic from 1963, and one of my favorites, is covered here by me and the "Dave's". This song has always been special to me, as I've always been an introvert, especially when growing up, and my own bedroom offered me a special place all my own where I could reflect, plan, dream, feel safe, energized... you name it!
Most of this cover version is sung with a 3-part harmony and a lower bass vocal part. In the bridge there are 2 brief lines where a 5-part harmony is used.
The beginning of this video introduces everyone performing in it separately, then starting the second verse all the way to the end of the song, the five main instruments/vocals are displayed on the screen all together.
