The Beach Boys - "Good Vibrations" (from Good Vibrations Tour 1976)




"Good Vibrations" is a song composed by Brian Wilson with lyrics by Mike Love for the American rock band the Beach Boys, of which both were members. Released on October 10, 1966, the single was an immediate critical and commercial hit, topping record charts in several countries including the US and UK. "Good Vibrations" later became widely acclaimed as one of the finest and most important works of the rock era.


Carl Dean Wilson (December 21, 1946 – February 6, 1998) was an American musician, singer, and songwriter who co-founded the Beach Boys. He is best remembered as their lead guitarist, as the youngest brother of bandmates Brian and Dennis Wilson, and as the group's de facto leader in the early 1970s. He was also the band's musical director on stage from 1965 until his death.


Carl Wilson's initial role in the group was that of lead guitarist and backing vocals, but he performed lead vocals on several of their later hits, including "God Only Knows" (1966), "Good Vibrations" (1966), and "Kokomo" (1988).




Lyrics


I-I love the colorful clothes she wears

And the way the sunlight plays upon her hair

I hear the sound of a gentle word

On the wind that lifts her perfume through the air


'm pickin' up good vibrations

She's giving me the excitations (oom bop bop)

I'm pickin' up good vibrations (good vibrations, oom bop bop)

She's giving me the excitations (excitations, oom bop bop)

I'm pickin' up good vibrations (oom bop bop)

She's giving me the excitations (excitations, oom bop bop)

I'm pickin' up good vibrations (oom bop bop)

She's giving me the excitations (excitations)


Close my eyes, she's somehow closer now

Softly smile, I know she must be kind

When I look in her eyes

She goes with me to a blossom world


I'm pickin' up good vibrations

She's giving me excitations (oom bop bop)

I'm pickin' up good vibrations (good vibrations, oom bop bop)

She's giving me excitations (excitations, oom bop bop)

Good, good, good, good vibrations (oom bop bop)

She's giving me excitations (excitations, oom bop bop)

Good, good, good, good vibrations (oom bop bop)

She's giving me excitations (excitations)


Ah, ah, my my, what elation

I don't know where but she sends me there

Oh, my my, what a sensation

Oh, my my, what elation

Oh, my my, what


Gotta keep those lovin' good vibrations a-happenin' with her

Gotta keep those lovin' good vibrations a-happenin' with her

Gotta keep those lovin' good vibrations a-happenin'


Good, good, good, good vibrations (oom bop bop)

She's giving me the excitations (excitations, oom bop bop)

I'm pickin' up good vibrations


Na na na na na, na na na

Na na na na na, na na na (bop bop-bop-bop-bop, bop)

Do do do do do, do do do (bop bop-bop-bop-bop, bop)

Do do do do do, do do do (bop bop-bop-bop-bop, bop)
