God Only Knows- The Beach Boys (my favorite songs)

billkozyBillkozy on 03/07/2017

This March 9th, my mother's birthday, marks the 51st (in 2017) anniversary of The Beach Boys starting to record 'God Only Knows' in 1966. This harmonically sophisticated song is one of my favorites by one of my favorite groups.

The song was written by Brian Wilson and Tony Asher. Wilson said in 2011 to Goldmine magazine, "Tony Asher and I tried to write something very spiritually. It's got a melody similar to the song (recites lyric to 'The Sound Of Music'), 'I hear the sound of music…' (sings lyrics to 'God Only Knows')...It was similar to it. Tony came up with the title 'God Only Knows.' I was scared they'd ban playing it on the radio because of the title but they didn't."

Paul McCartney, no less, has called it his favorite song of all time. In 1990 Paul told David Leaf in an interview, "I was asked recently to give my top 10 favorite songs for a Japanese radio station ... I didn't think long and hard on it but I popped that [God Only Knows] on the top of my list. It's very deep. Very emotional, always a bit of a choker for me, that one." And in 2007, McCartney added "'God Only Knows' is one of the few songs that reduces me to tears every time I hear it. It's really just a love song, but it's brilliantly done. It shows the genius of Brian. I've actually performed it with him and I'm afraid to say that during the sound check I broke down. It was just too much to stand there singing this song that does my head in and to stand there singing it with Brian."
