Recently, one of their performances on the Ed Sullivan Show received a lot of popularity. The band’s timeless performance of such a complex song, live on the show, made it stand out.

The Beach Boys chose to perform the song, ‘Good Vibrations,’ which had lyrics written by Mike Love, and the music was composed by Brian Wilson. This time, the performance was captured in color on the show.

Despite Brian Wilson’s unavailability due to his health, the band’s performance was mind-blowing. The live performance began with visual effects that showed each member up close and had them playing instruments in the background.

They had used the latest Kaleidoscopic and green screen effects that stood out of the ordinary. The original song was very complex, and singing it live on stage was tricky.

However, the Beach Boys ensured that every note was on the spot, and the audience was entertained by the true psychedelic masterpiece. Carl Wilson’s voice was incredible, but Mike was the one to provide the foundation for the song.

The song had one of the best bass lines of all time, and the trippy effect made it sound stunning. Hence, the rock band proved how talented they were, even when they performed live.
