BBC unveiled a stunning new video that everyone who likes music should probably be watching right now. It’s an opulent music video for the eternal pop classic, “God Only Knows” by the Beach Boys.
Most artists would be foolish to cover such a legendary song — one even Paul McCartney once declared the greatest song ever written. But when 30+ of music’s most loved artists — including contemporary chart toppers like Pharrell, Lorde, Sam Smith and One Direction alongside older legends like Elton John, Stevie Wonder, and the song’s writer himself, Brian Wilson — get together, they can do the song a unique justice.
Watch the video above. Below is a full list of the famous musicians who sing/play in the video:
Dave Grohl; Alison Balsom; Lorde; Pharrell Williams; Zane Lowe; Sam Smith; Paloma Faith; Eliza Carthy; Nicola Benedetti; Chris Martin; Jaz Dhami; Martin James Bartlett; Danielle de Niese; Stevie Wonder; Florence Welch; Lauren Laverne; Brian Wilson; Jake Bugg; Katie Derham; Gareth Malone; Kylie Minogue; Chrissie Hyde; One Direction; Emeli Sande; Elton John; Baaba Maal; Ethan Johns; Jools Holland; Jamie Cullum; Brian May; Tees Valley Youth Choir; BBC Concert Orchestra
