The Beach Boys - "Good Vibrations" (Live)




"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.


Brian Douglas Wilson (born June 20, 1942) is an American musician, singer, songwriter, and record producer who co-founded the Beach Boys. After signing with Capitol Records in 1962, Wilson wrote or co-wrote more than two dozen Top 40 hits for the group. In addition to his unorthodox approaches to pop composition and mastery of recording techniques, Wilson is known for his lifelong struggles with mental illness. He is often referred to as a genius and is widely acknowledged as one of the most innovative and significant songwriters of the late 20th century.


The Beach Boys were formed by Wilson with his brothers Dennis and Carl, their cousin Mike Love, and friend Al Jardine. Brian, who grew up influenced by 1950s rock and roll and jazz-based vocal groups, originally functioned as the band's songwriter, producer, co-lead vocalist, bassist, keyboardist, and de facto leader.



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)
