Good Vibrations (6:02)

Cover of Summer Dreams

From Summer Dreams and 349 other releases

“Good Vibrations” is a pop single by The Beach Boys. The song was composed by and produced by Brian Wilson, with lyrics by Wilson and Mike Love.

Released as a single on October 10, 1966 (backed with the Pet Sounds instrumental “Let’s Go Away For Awhile”), it was the band’s third U.S. number-one hit, after “I Get Around” and “Help Me, Rhonda”, reaching the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart in December 1966, as well as being their first British chart-topper. Initiated during the sessions for the Pet Sounds album, it was not taken from or issued as a lead single for an album, but as a stand-alone single, and later placed on the album Smiley Smile eleven months after its release.

I, I love the colorful clothes she wears
And on the way this sunlight plays upon her hair
I hear the sound of a gentle word
On the wind that lifts her perfume through the air

    During the 80s, it was a common marketing practice to use classic songs as the basis for commercial jingle. My earliest memory of this song was as a Sunkist commercial. LOL

    Out of all the heavy-hitters in the western pop canon, this is surely the best. 2:14 onwards ;__;

    All I can say is that it's a timeless classic.I was 12 years old when I first heard this song & heard the Beach Boys on the radio before I saw them on TV shows like Where the Action is & American Bandstand.

    I still cannot fathom how on earth this was a hit considering how bloody weird and complex it is.

    These Boys sure did epitomize California back in the Good Old Days. Life styles the rest of us could only 'Dream' of.
