God Only Knows

Made a playlist today called Hope/Despair, which is the kind of grade 10 title that's been appealing to me a lot lately. And as advertised it's filled with songs designed to elicit hope and despair - interestingly, the sad songs often fill me with hope, whereas the ones full of sunshine and balloons plunge the ol' despair needle in.

Added to this playlist will be God Only Knows, one of the best Beach Boys songs ever. And thanks to Stereogum I found this incredible post by MOKB of God Only Knows covers. I cannot stress enough how good the Aqualung version is - if you liked their cover of Somebody to Love you need to grab this song. Also fairly solid is David Bowie's torch song rendition.
