As #BANDAID30 are about to debut their recording of Do They Know It’s Christmas?  tonight on the X Factor to raise funds to combat the Ebola virus, another recent and significant fund raising effort should be applauded.

The song God Only Knows was released on the Beach Boys Pet Sounds album in 1966.  Written by Brian Wilson and Tony Asher, the BBC decided to record the song for this year’s Children in Need featuring a host of stars, including Brian Wilson – great respect – and here is the video extravaganza.

The recording has, so far, raised over £2 million for Children in Need.
