"Good Day Sunshine" is a song by The Beatles on the 1966 album Revolver. It was written by Paul McCartney, with help from John Lennon, and credited to Lennon/McCartney. Leonard Bernstein praised the song for its construction in a 1967 CBS News documentary. Richie Unterberger of allmusic said the song "radiates optimism and good vibes" and Ian MacDonald said it is "superbly sung by McCartney and exquisitely produced by George Martin and his team" and "displays The Beatles at their effortless best."

McCartney said that he was influenced by The Lovin' Spoonful: the song's "old-timey vaudevillian feel" particularly recalls the Spoonful's big hit "Daydream" to which it also shows some harmonic resemblance.
