  1. "God Only Knows" has a strong emotional connection deep within me... every time I hear it, I instantly recall the mental image and emotional feeling of me sitting on a bus, simply not knowing what life had in store ahead for me. It's a strong, sad and heartbroken feeling... the song itself is a very strong and positive song, but it just brings strong emotions to the fore for me.

    Thanks, Brian Wilson :)

  2. Many thanks to Richard Bailey for the encouraging phone-call mid-show today - thank you!
