I don’t know how many of you remember this song from The Beach Boys but “God Only Knows” was the best song of 1966. This song was written by Brian Wilson and Tony Asher. It was part of their album Pet Sounds. I thought this song might be good for the hard times we are all going through.
The song was sung by Wilson’s younger brother Carl and the musical arrangement was unique using a combination of French horn, accordion, sleigh bells, harpsichord and a quartet of violas and cellos. Rolling Stone magazine placed it at number 25 of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. It was also included as one of the 500 Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll by The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
