The Beach Boys recorded Good Vibrations in 1966 - at the time it was the most expensive pop song ever recorded. Brian Wilson became obsessed with the song while composing it, and lead singer Mike Love wrote the flowery lyrics. Good Vibrations was recorded in over 17 recording sessions in six different studios over a two-month period. The final version of the song was the first pop hit to be pieced together from fragments of different recording sessions. The Beach Boys hired top session musicians in Los Angeles, and played no instruments on the recording. Among the musicians who recorded the song was Glen Campbell on lead guitar. Brian Wilson was originally the only songwriter given credit on the song. Mike Love went to court to get writing credits for this and 34 other Beach Boys songs. In 1994, the courts awarded him the song writing credits that he had been denied.
