To promote BBC Music, the network assembled a collection of stars including Queen's Brian May & The Pretenders' Chrissie Hynde (and some people I don't recognize) to cover the Beach Boys' classic.


Okay, here are a few thoughts:

- What's up with Pharrell's pants?

- Elton seems bored, but Lorde has a nice tone and emotion in her voice.

- Chris Martin of Coldplay actually nails his part.

- Stevie sounds great, I'd like to hear him do a full cover of this tune.

- I'm not a big fan of the Pretenders, but for the first time I would've liked to hear more of Chrissie Hynde.

- Dave Grohl seems out of place, he only gets the one line and it seems rather uncomfortable.

- No matter what, this is still one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard.

In case you're like me and didn't recognize about half of the people in there, BBC Music provided a full list of the musicians here.
