Good Vibrations

***GOOD VIBRATIONS NAMED HAPPIEST SONG ON EARTH***

from beachboysfanclub.org:

The Beach Boys' “Good Vibrations” has been declared the the song that makes people happiest, according to a formula created by a University of Sheffield professor. According to Study Finds, musicologist Dr. Michael Bonshor's formula postulates that “the combination of a major key, 7th chords, 137 BPM, strong beat, four beats in every bar, and a verse-chorus-verse-chorus structure is a sure-fire way to produce a happy beat. It should also have a short intro, repeated riffs, high volume, bright tone, and a mix of predictability and surprise.” “Good Vibrations” meets all of his criteria and tops his list of happiest songs.
Top 10 Happy Songs According to Dr. Bonshor’s Formula:

1. “Good Vibrations” by The Beach Boys
2. “I Got You (I Feel Good") by James Brown
3. “House of Fun” by Madness
4. “Get the Party Started” by P!nk
5. “Uptown Girl” by Billy Joel
6. “Sun Is Shining” by Bob Marley
7. “I Get Around” by The Beach Boys
8. “YMCA” by Village People
9. “Waterloo” by ABBA
10. “September” by Earth, Wind & Fire

The 4 CD box set of nothing but Good Vibrations takes is INSANE.

Great great record but the BB record which makes me happiest is "Wouldn't it be nice". If that intro doesn't put a smile on your face.....

Oh yes, me too! I think it's one of the best bits on Pet Sounds.
