Brian Wilson has lived with severe depression for much of his life. But that hasn’t stopped him from creating some of the most magical, wonderful songs that we all know by heart. Even with the classic “Pet Sounds,” I’ve always thought the Beach Boys were somewhat underrated. They were about more than surfing and getting the girl. They were about hopes, dreams, and promise. And as “God Only Knows” proves, their songs could be reflective and even melancholy, too.
Now, BBC music has honored Brian and the Beach Boys with this unbelievable new collaboration and video. Brian is here, along with so many others, including Elton John, Pharrell Williams, Stevie Wonder, and so many more. Enjoy!
