The Most Dazzling Video of 2014

Another glorious multi-person cover from the BBC.  The song is the Beach Boys’ “God Only Knows”, and Brian Wilson makes an appearance.

This time, many of the performers will be unfamiliar to people outside the UK, and the BBC has provided a helpful guide to Who’s in the Impossible Orchestra?   Watch the video first, though, so you can enjoy the surprise of seeing…well, a number of familiar faces.

It’s been 17 years since the last time the BBC did something like this, w/the beautiful cover of Lou Reed’s “Perfect Day”, featuring pretty much everybody who made music in the last quarter of the Twentieth Century.
