BBC Music’s Version of ‘God Only Knows’ Proves It’s Best Love Song of All Time [Video]

I've never really been a Beach Boys fan. Worse than hating them, I'm indifferent toward their music, except for one song. "God Only Knows".

I've always felt that song was possibly one of the best love songs ever written. It's simple declaration that without the one you love, your fate would be up in the air, is so concise, so brilliantly sublime. And then there's the symphonic music that adds a level of emotion. At 2 minutes and 24 seconds it is pure pop confection.

Not to mention the visuals are stunning.

ArtPrize 2014: What’s Going On October 4

Scarlett Kanistanaux is working ArtPrize 2014 like she's running for office.

The Erie, Colo., sculptor has been in the first-floor lobby of 50 Monroe sharing about her 26-inch high, 26-inch deep, 51-inch tall dark fired clay piece titled "Quiet Mind" with the aplomb of an elementary school art teacher since ArtPrize Day One on Sept. 24.

The billboard artist-turned-sculptor, who's represented exclusively by Denver-based Pismo Fine Art Glass, has been readily meeting and greeting and not being discrete in discussing the largest ceramic sculpture she's ever done.

Today (Saturday, Oct. 4) is a big day for Kanistanaux and everyone else involved with ArtPrize as it enters the 11th day of its 19-day run in Grand Rapids. This is the last day of first-round public voting.
