From article page
I moved this to the talk page:
(Could someone quote Brian's comments about this song from the anniversary edition of "Pet Sounds"? I don't have it available, but it would provide good background information to this article.)

"God Only Knows" is the final song in the film Love Actually.
It was also used in episode 6 of Skins.
"As a consequence, many radio stations at the time refused to play it."
I'd like a citation for that. It seems very unlikely in 1960s Cold War America, though not impossible.
I have removed the lyrics that were posted on this page in full as all the songs lyrics on 'Pet Sounds' are copyrighted in 1966 under Irving Music. And unless their is permission given to use the lyrics then it is breaching the copyright of the songs lyrics. --Sahafan 09:02, 12 May 2006 (UTC)
"Firstly" on Love Actually?
This is a SUPER nitpick, but shouldn't it read that the song was "firstly" on the Boogie Nights soundtrack and then on Love Actually? To me, it seems only fair to Mr. Anderson that he gets credit for sticking it on his movie first (especially considering that Love Actually is quite possibly influenced by the multi-narrative structure partially popularized by Anderson's movies)
- so anderson is a genius for being the first person to use god only knows in a movie? even if that point is arguable, i don't quite think you can make the leap from that to saying anderson's movies influenced love actually and therefore somehow connect the use of god only knows, as if love actually's use of the song is somehow aping anderson's. i wouldn't say the word "firstly" is in and of itself NPOV, but your explanation certainly is wayyy NPOV.
Brian Wilson - cover??
It strikes me as odd that in the list of covers, Brian Wilson is mentioned twice, when in fact he co-wrote the song. Slightly demeaning to him! Just a thought. Beanrobot (talk) 17:12, 8 April 2008 (UTC)
It is mentioned that there were only three vocalists - C. Wilson, B. Wilson and Jonston. But how is it possible, that I can hear Mike Love singing that "bababa" part? --126.96.36.199 (talk) 13:29, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
