Timmy Sean Records a Lovely Version of “God Only Knows” for the latest Song of the Week

timmy-sean-song-of-the-weekIt’s not often that we find ourselves unable to come up with a way to frame a particular song or performance, but that’s where we are today, right here and now, as the light shines down from above on a lovely interpretation of Brian Wilson’s immortal song, “God Only Knows”; we know better than to say something when someone else has already figured it out, so the floor is yours, Timmy Sean, as this week’s Song of the Week plays…

“Well, there’s not many people that really deserve the title of ‘legend,’ but Brian Wilson is without a doubt one of those few. I had the supreme pleasure of meeting Brian (truly one of my musical heroes in every sense of the word) this past weekend, and I thought what better way to celebrate than by recording one of his songs. What else can be said about this song that hasn’t been said before. ‘God Only Knows’ is quite possibly the most prolific piece of pop music of all time, one of a select few songs that I believe will be known hundreds of years in the future.

It was really great meeting you, man!”

Timmy’s wonderful version of “God Only Knows” brings us to week 16 of the Songs of the Week project. What will Timmy bring next week? Be here and find out!
