The Beach Boys: Good Vibrations (1966) – Song Review

The Beach Boys… It has been a few years since the last time I heard anything from them… But they are one of those bands that no matter how long it has been… They are usually that good!

Now The Beach Boys have been ingrained in popular culture and is completely associated with the popculture and myth and legend of the 1960s forever… Having had Brian Wilson having been associated with Charles Manson, before him and his cult started their killing spree… Now that is sort of ironic when you consider their song, ‘Good Vibrations!

Created for the B-Side of their 1966 album, ‘Let’s Go Away for Awhile’! This song, which was created at the height of the psychedelic rock music movement… This song is the definition of the 1960s… You could almost see teenagers in bell bottoms and girls in gogo boots rocking out to this song… or Frankie and Anette listening to this song.

I guess what I am trying to say is that this song may have some dust on it… But if you like the sound of the 60s… Then I think you are really going to enjoy it! But if that is not the type of music that you might like, then you might want to switch to something else!

But you know what, why not listen to the song itself… And maybe introduce yourself to some classic rock that is still pretty awesome!

And if you like that, then why not check out the lyrics to, ‘Good Vibrations’ from the 1966 album, ‘The Beach Boys’ hit, ‘Let’s Go Away for Awhile’!

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
I’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)
