Picking Up Good Vibrations
I hear the sound of a gentle word
enjoyed song more for its
catchy melody
interesting lyrics.

fully appreciated the
of this piece’s

Psychedelic pop groove.

Experimental for time period.

embodies both complexity and listening appeal

I don't know where but she sends me there
provided a creative musical canvas to explore
I wanted to take it a part, dissect the construction, listen to each individual part and learn how to put it back together again.
Many songs I wrote or covered directly inspired by this song.

The huge success of Good Vibrations led to further creative and experimental music.
released as single: 1967
The Lyrics
Ive been in this town so long that back in the city Ive been taken for lost and gone and unknown for a long long time.
I've been in this town so long
So long to the city
I'm fit with the stuff
To ride in the rough
And sunny down snuff I'm alright
By the heroes and villains
