Paul McCartney once called Brian Wilson’s “God Only Knows” the most beautiful love song ever written. I found the version above to be very intriguing. The performers are from several different genres and generations of music. I kept watching this over and over to identify all the performers, to catch all the visual detail in the imaginative creation, and to re-live the beauty of the song.
