"Soulful Old Man Sunshine" is a song written by Brian Wilson and Rick Henn for the American rock band The Beach Boys. The song was recorded on November 6 & 9, 1969, during the Sunflower sessions but was not released until 1998 when it appeared on the band's compilation album Endless Harmony Soundtrack.[1]

During the song, Carl Wilson appears to sing "Shunshine" instead of "Sunshine". He was said to have vetoed the song's inclusion in the 1993 Good Vibrations: Thirty Years of The Beach Boys box set due to this flub; the song was only released after his death.[citation needed]
