"GOOD VIBRATIONS" - THE BEACH BOYS
Arguably the counterculture anthem of the 1960s, "Good Vibrations" by The Beach Boys is recognized by critics worldwide as the most vital composition in the history of popular music. Brain Wilson is known as the band's sonic genius and is singlehandedly responsible for the divergent production of their album Pet Sounds in 1966. Although not included on the iconic album, "Good Vibrations" was orchestrated at that time utilizing The Wrecking Crew, the phenomenal group of studio musicians responsible for Phil Spector's "Wall of Sound" and hundreds of Top 40 hits throughout the '60s and '70s. Wilson's avant-garde arrangements made his cousin/bandmate, Mike Love, and label executives, question the creative initiative due to it's clear departure from the band's prior commercially-safe material. "Good Vibrations" enhanced the flower power movement as it shot up the Billboard Hot 100 chart, earning The Beach Boys their third No.1 single in the US and later, a GRAMMY Hall of Fame Award for it's historical grooviness.
