"Good Timin’" is a song written by brothers Brian and Carl Wilson for the American rock band the Beach Boys. It was the second single released from the album L.A. (Light Album) (1979); the B-side was "Love Surrounds Me".
The track was initiated during the group's sporadic sessions at Brother Studios and Caribou Ranch throughout the mid 1970s. Due to the public backlash following the release of the Beach Boys' disco "Here Comes the Night", "Good Timin'" was quickly finished with necessary vocal overdubs and rushed as a single.
"Good Timin'" was played live throughout the early 1980s following its release. Brian sang the lead during the Beach Boys 50th Anniversary Tour with Al Jardine also on vocals filling in for Carl Wilson.
"Good Timin'" reached number 40 in the U.S. during a stay of ten weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. It was their first single to reach the Top 40 portion of the chart in nearly three years, since "It's OK" in October 1976. It also reached number 12 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart.
