The BBC has assembled more than two dozen musicians to perform the Beach Boys' "God Only Knows" with an 80-piece BBC Concert Orchestra as a promotion for its new music venture, BBC Music.

Artists include Pharrell Williams, Elton John, Lorde, Stevie Wonder, One Direction and Brian Wilson. An article in The Guardian details each artist and their appearance in the video.

Sales of the song will benefit BBC Children in Need.

Writing for Slate.com, Sharan Shetty called the "God Only Knows" video "one of the more bizarrely entertaining, and certainly the most lavish" covers of the song, adding that "Lavish may actually be an understatement.”

Musicians are depicted in a variety of settings, including standing among sunflowers, surrounded by butterflies, floating in a bubble, on a carousel horse, on a giant swing and in a hot air balloon.

Some of the participants promoted the video on Twitter.





Twitter users shared mixed reviews.
