Amazing Video Of ‘God Only Knows’ Features Everyone The BBC Knows

Lorde, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Brian May and more join Brian Wilson to remake his classic Beach Boys song.

A funny thing happens when an American who likes British music flies across the pond. Once touching down in Heathrow or Gatwick, and heading into London, they are suddenly submerged in a music scene that is far more alien than they could expect.

It turns out that no matter how much the Brits like to export their pop culture around the world, they keep a fair chunk to themselves. So when you watch this version of ‘God Only Knows’, you’re going to see a lot of musicians you know…and a whole bunch you won’t know…and probably will immediate forget, but they’ll pop up again in the next British ensemble flick (probably one directed by Richard Curtis[Love Actually]).

We’re a little confused as to whether this amazing version of the Beach Boys’ ‘God Only Knows’ would count as a cover, because Brian Wilson performs part of the song (accompanied by a tiger)…but so do a whole bunch of other people.

Anyway, it’s a nice way to brighten a dark, rainy day.
