I grew up listening to the Beach Boys and I have always been a fan of their music. As I grew older and came to know the story behind the band and the music, I became an even bigger fan–of Brian Wilson, in particular.
So I was over the moon when BBC Music released this version of God Only Knows.
I was going to say that this song used to hold a special significance in my heart but I realize that isn’t exactly true. Just hearing the song again opened a floodgate of emotions.
And although so many things have changed and we are no longer the same, I guess the impact of a song–especially one as beautiful as this–will never fade.
