"The Warmth of the Sun" is a song written by Brian Wilson and Mike Love for The Beach Boys. It was released on their 1964 album Shut Down Volume 2 and as the B-side of the "Dance, Dance, Dance" single, which charted at number eight in the United States and number twenty-four in the United Kingdom. Brian Wilson produced the song, and the rest of the album. He also sang lead vocals on the song, which was written on the evening of President John Kennedy's assassination at the now-defunct Hotel El Dorado in Sacramento, California.

It was featured on the soundtrack of Good Morning, Vietnam (1987), the comedy-drama feature film starring Robin Williams, along with other Beach Boys hits "I Get Around" and "Don't Worry, Baby."
