The movie depicts Carl Wilson, Brian Wilson, Bruce Johnston, and Mike Love singing "God Only Knows" live in the studio with the musicians. In reality, Brian Wilson (and most music producers) never records "live" - he has the instrumental track recorded and perfected first, then later overdubs the vocals; this was definitely the case with "God Only Knows." Also, Mike Love does not appear on "God Only Knows;" the background vocal that Mike is shown laying down in the movie was in reality provided by Brian Wilson. See more
