Insert Select From - Not All ColumnsHelpful Member!

I would like to INSERT INTO TABLE_A SELECT * FROM TABLE_B, but, put fixed values into the first three columns of the destination table, as follows;
VALUES ("VAL1", "VAL2", "VAL3", ((Select X From TABLE_B))

Where "X" is the remaining columns from TABLE_B.

Obviously, this isn't the correct construct, it's just to give some idea of what I want to do.
