The Impossible Orchestra - God Only Knows
The original version of ‘God Only Knows’ reached Number 2 in 1966. It was written by Brian Wilson who also appears on this new charity version hoping to raise a lot of money for Children In Need. Out of 14 charity singles, 7 of them have reached Number 1 including ‘Love You More’ by JLS and Girls Aloud’s ‘I’ll Stand By You’. The last super group performance for Children In Need was in 1997 with ‘Perfect Day’ topped the chart and sold over 1 million copies. 17 years later Elton John is the only person to appear on this new record as well as the 90’s hit. ‘God Only Knows’ also features Pharrell Williams, Kylie Minogue, One Direction, Stevie Wonder and Chris Martin from Coldplay amongst many others.
