1978_Marilyn_Scott_God_Only_KnowsMarilyn Scott (born December 21, 1949 in Altadena, California) is an American jazz vocalist.

Scott’s first single was a cover of Brian Wilson’s “God Only Knows”, which was a hit in the U.S. and was followed with the 1979 full-length Dreams of Tomorrow. Her 1991 release Without Warning was critically acclaimed among jazz writers. Her duet with Bobby Caldwell, “Sky Dancing”, was a hit in Japan, and she toured that country following its success.

God Only Knows is a song written by Brian Wilson and Tony Asher for American rock band The Beach Boys, released in May 1966 as the eighth track on the group’s album Pet Sounds. Two months later, it was released as the B-side of “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” in the United States. In other countries, “God Only Knows” was the single’s A-side. According to historian John Robert Greene, “God Only Knows” led to the reinvention of the popular love song.
