“BBC Music is delighted to share with you this extraordinary version of the Beach Boys’ masterpiece, God Only Knows, to celebrate our love of music.With the 80-piece BBC Concert Orchestra at its heart and 27 ridiculously talented musicians from a wide range of genres, this “impossible orchestra” represents the talent, diversity and musical passion found every single day throughout the BBC.”
The song – God Only Knows released in 1966 by The Beach Boys on their album Pet Sounds.
Tuesday 7th October 2014 once Eastenders had finished & the starting of Holby City, just before 8pm – it was the first time BBC Music had aired their song, I was sitting eating dinner with my Sister & Mum & we were chatting & then suddenly memorized by the television, it was just brilliant. It was beautifully shot & with so many brilliant talented musicians it made a great video.
The line up involved in the BBC Music God Only Knows video were the following;
– Ethan Johns – Martin James Bartlett – Pharrell Williams – Emeli Sande – Elton John
– Lorde – Chris Martin – Brian Wilson – Florence Welch – Kylie Minogue
– Stevie Wonder – Eliza Carthy – Nicola Benedetti – Jools Holland – Brian May
– Jake Bugg – Lauren Laverne – Katie Derham – Tess Valley Youth Choir – Gareth Malone
– Alison Balsom – One Direction – Zane Lowe – Jaz Dhami – Paloma Faith
– Chrissie Hynde – Jamie Cullum – BaabaMaal – Danielle De Niese – Dave Grohl
– Sam Smith
As you can see it is a pretty cool line up, with some brilliant musical talent that have made music history & have been great. Which really made the film that more special & it is tied into Children In Need, all sells for the music will go the charity – which is brilliant too. Another great thing that has come from the BBC.
