Brian gets covered by the late David Bowie

There’s no shortage of great Beach Boys covers. As I was going through my library today finding a good one, I remembered that David Bowie covered “God Only Knows” on his mediocre 1984 record ‘Tonight’, it’s a good cover and seemingly unlikely song for David to have done at that stage in his career.
