God Only Knows

One of my favourite Beach Boy songs, sung by Brian Wilson and many people I’ve never heard of and a few I have – Stevie Wonder, Lorde, One Direction, Chris Martin … A lovely extravaganza.

And if you’re in the mood for music and film – and let’s face it, it’s January, so go for it – here’s another YouTube treat: Garth Hudson, member of The Band who were so vital to Dylan, returns to the house Big Pink where that glorious album was recorded. Very moving.
