"My mother used to tell me about vibrations. I didn't really understand too much of what she meant when I was a boy. It scared me, the word 'vibrations' - to think that invisible feelings existed. She also told me about dogs that would bark at some people, but wouldn't bark at others, and so it came to pass that we talked about good vibrations." - Brian Wilson
''Some people say it was written on acid. But I don’t accredit it to LSD, I accredit it to marijuana. I smoked marijuana just before I wrote it. I was playing at the piano and began singing about good vibrations, just fooling around.'' - Brian Wilson
''Good Vibrations'' is a wonderful tune. The other Beach Boys had a lot of input. We got together and had a discussion beforehand. We all wanted to do something different, make some music that would last forever. Not just surf songs and car songs. It was all about creating lasting music. And that led to “Good Vibrations”. It was one giant step forward.'' - Brian Wilson
