Today, we remember The Beach Boys, my favorite group after The Beatles, The Bee Gees and The Rolling Stones.

“Good vibrations” was so ahead of its time that it still sounds innovative today.   It was released in October 1966 and moved to # 1 by December!

It is rare for a “pop song” to get better with age…..this one does everyday!

It was the first single after “Pet Sounds“, or the greatest Beach Boys LP ever.  (We wrote a post about it last June)

Over time, it became the 6th best song ever, according to Rolling Stone’s Top 500 songs!  It also came in as # 24 in Songs of the Century.

“Good Vibrations” was followed by “Heroes and Villains”, another one of my all time favorites.

Aren’t those harmonies amazing?  Cheers for Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Dennis Wilson, Carl Wilson and Al Jardine!
