The track is a classic from The Beach Boys and has already millions of fans. BBC decided to cover this track with various artists which turned out to be a really good marketing trick. In the process, they have given us a really good cover of the classic track.
The artists that helped this cover include Lorde, Elton John, Pharrell, One Direction, Paloma, Sam Smith, and Kylie Minogue among others. The Beach Boys’s lead vocalist Brian Wilson also became a part of the long list of singers covering this song for BBC Music launch.
