This groundbreaking classic was first attempted during the sessions for "Pet Sounds" with first draft lyrics from PS collaborator, Tony Asher.
Was called "a mosaic, rather than a true composed song" by music professor, Daniel Harrison.
The most elaborate production of all of the Beach Boys' hits; truly Brian Wilson's crowning achievement.
Became the BB's biggest worldwide hit (up until 1988's "Kokomo").
Brian effective uses a cello on the chorus to emualate a fuzz guitar.
The theremin, Carl's vocal, Mike's "I'm pickin' up good vibrations", the harmony chord before the last chorus, Brian's astute sense of orchestration, and the round-like vocals that close the track make this one of the all-time great recording studio concoctions.
