"Good Vibrations" is a song by American group Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch. It was released in July 1991 as the lead single from their debut album Music for the People. The song became a number-one hit in the United States, Sweden, San Marino and Switzerland.

Background[edit]

"Good Vibrations" was written by Amir Quadeer Shakir, aka "M.C. Spice", a good friend of Donnie Wahlberg, Mark Wahlberg, and Dan Hartman. The rapper/songwriter also wrote and produced "Wild Side" for Mark Wahlberg's debut LP as well as three other songs. M.C. Spice is featured on the song "Peace" with Mark and the crew and has contributed to the second LP by the Hollywood film star. The song featured a sample of Loleatta Holloway singing "Love Sensation" by Dan Hartman. Holloway made an appearance performing the chorus in the music video.

Music video[edit]

The black and white video featured a 20-year-old Marky Mark working out and boxing barechested, and making out with a girl on a bed. Boxer Micky Ward is credited for helping with the boxing technique and training used for this video. Mark Wahlberg first met Micky Ward when he was 18 and later played him on the big screen in the 2010 film The Fighter. The music video was produced by David Horgan and directed by Scott Kalvert.
