Sir Paul McCartney cries when he hears God Only Knows




Beach Boys song 'does my head in' says legendary Beatle

Sir Paul McCartney breaks down in tears every time he hears the Beach Boys' song God Only Knows.

The 65-year-old Beatles legend has confessed he can't control his emotions whenever he hears the Brian Wilson penned track.

Speaking on a special Radio 1 show to mark the British station's 40th anniversary, Paul said: "God Only Knows is one of the few songs that reduces me to tears every time I hear it. It's really just a love song, but it's brilliantly done. It shows the genius of Brian.

"I've actually performed it with him and I'm afraid to say that during the sound check I broke down. It was just too much to stand there singing this song that does my head in, and to stand there singing it with Brian."

During the hour-long show, Paul played a selection of his all-time favourite songs, including The Guillemots' Little Bear, Elvis Presley's Heartbreak Hotel and Beatles classic Hey Jude.

As part of the fortnight-long birthday celebrations, Blondie singer Debbie Harry, Oasis star Noel Gallagher and Gwen Stefani will be taking to the airwaves to host their own hour-long Legends shows.
