Watch: Beach Boys’ “God Only Knows” Feat. Lorde, Dave Grohl, Sam Smith, and more

Beach Boys classic gets star-studded treatment

The BBC recruited musicians across all genres in celebration of BBC Music’s launch. The end result? A charity single of epic celeb-stuffed proportions. Watch the eclectic rendition of “God Only Knows” below.

The video is a whimsical (okay, slightly cheesy) homage to the legends of pop and rock, mixed with current artists set to be the future of music. Pharrell Williams, Dave Grohl, Lorde, Chris Martin, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Florence Welch, Kylie Minogue, Brian May, Sam Smith, and Jake Bugg all contributed, among countless others.

All proceeds from the single will go to BBC Children in Need.
