'God Only Knows' Vintage Video By The Beach Boys

Enjoy a throwback performance of ‘God Only Knows’ from The Beach Boys.


This beloved song was originally released in 1966. Since that time, it’s been covered by countless artists and become a pop culture favorite, particularly for being featured in the Christmas movie ‘Love Actually.’

“I may not always love you
But long as there are stars above you
You never need to doubt it
I'll make you so sure about it
God only knows what I'd be without you”

The Beach Boys are one of the most iconic bands in recent decades. Their hits such as ‘Good Vibrations’ and ‘Barbara Ann’ shot to the top of the charts and remain a staple in our music history.

The original group lineup consisted of brothers Brian, Dennis, and Carl Wilson, Mike Love, and Al Jardine. Their smooth rock sounds mixed with jazz were a delight for almost everyone to hear.

The single ‘God Only Knows’ was another smash success for the group and was even voted 25th in Rolling Stone magazine's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

“God only knows what I'd be without you
If you should ever leave me
Though life would still go on, believe me
The world could show nothing to me
So what good would living do me”

As you listen to the lyrics, we are taken back to simpler times in the world. This Beach Boys classic was definitely the dose of nostalgia that I needed today. What about you? Do you remember hearing ‘God Only Knows’ when it first came out?
