Video: Pharrell, Dave Grohl, Stevie Wonder, Lorde + more Cover “God Only Knows”

posted by Oscar October 7, 2014

To help promote their newly launched BBC Music site, the British Broadcasting Corporation brought together some of the world’s biggest talents to record one of the world’s most beautiful songs (and a personal all-time favorite), The Beach Boys’ “God Only Knows.”

The ensemble cast for this one boasts stars from the 60’s and on, including Pharrell, Elton John, Lorde, Chris Martin (Coldplay), Florence Welch (Florence + The Machine), Stevie Wonder, Brian May (Queen), One Direction, Dave Grohl, Sam Smith and the mastermind behind the original, Beach Boys leader Brian Wilson.

The cover is not exactly that in a traditional sense, since each artist barely gets about a line to perform, but it doesn’t sound half bad. You can also check a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the clip here.

posted by Oscar April 20, 2013

The craziness surrounding the official release of the new song from Daft Punk was huge until we finally got the real thing last night at midnight. Now, MissInfo has reported that Pharrell has performed the song live for the first time. “Get Lucky” got the live treatment for the first time at HTC’s One launch party, hosted at the House of Vans in Brooklyn, NY.

Pharrell Williams vs. Nardwuar!

posted by Oscar April 1, 2013
 We typically enjoy seeing the interviews conducted by the Human Serviette, Nardwuar, but we don’t learn nearly as much from him as we do of those he interviews. Most recently, Nardwuar interviewed Pharrell out in Austin while they were in town for SXSW but right when that was over, the boss man went from interviewee to interviewer and started asking the Nard some questions of his own while also surprising him with gifts.
We learned that Nardwuar has “a disease and that’s that (he’s) addicted to cheese,” but most importantly, Pharrell schools Nardwuar on the proper pronunciation of the word ho. See the funny and informative interview above.

Video: Robin Thicke feat. T.I., Pharrell – “Blurred Lines”

posted by Oscar March 20, 2013

One thing I’m just now willing to admit is that one of my guilty pleasures back in college was Robin Thicke’s music. Now that I’m more open to hearing much more diverse types of music, I can truly appreciate this new track by Mr. Paula Patton featuring T.I. and the always smooth Pharrell.

The video includes the 3 fellas dancing around with a bunch of models doing their thing, which for one’s case involves “wearing” a hand bra. “Blurred Lines” sounds like something a modern Michael Jackson-type would be making, falsetto shrieks and all. The track is funky cool and the video follows that same theme.
