(Late) Friday FunLink – Outstanding Cover Video of “God Only Knows”

As I was looking around on Spotify tonight, I stumbled upon a stunning video recently produced by the BBC. As it’s still Friday, I figured I could fit in one more FunLink today.

The song, “God Only Knows” – ranked by Rolling Stone as the 25th of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time (between “Dock of the Bay” and “People Get Ready” with “Like a Rolling Stone” at #1) was recently covered by an all-star, mostly British group of singers and musicians. Not only does it sound great, but it’s beautifully filmed. It’s well worth less than three minutes to view it – if only to see the venerable and complex Brian Wilson sing the final line.

Here’s the key to the photo of musicians above:

And here’s a pretty cool, brief “making of” video:

Finally, just because it’s the end of the week, here’s a vintage video (2006) of Wilson and The Corrs performing it live. The video isn’t great, but the audio is fine:
