Take one of the greatest songs ever and invite Pharrell Williams, Emeli Sande, Elton John, Lorde, Chris Martin, Florence Welch, Kylie Minogue, Stevie Wonder, Brian May, Jake Bugg, One Direction, Chrissie Hynde, Jamie Cullum, Dave Grohl, Sam Smith, and many others to join songwriter Brian Wilson in the most epic group since "We Are The World." The fact its coupled to an ambitious and stylish video directed by Francois Rousselet, of Jonas & Francois, that includes every single performer in uniquely appropriate set-ups makes it all the better — and yes, there's a charitable tie-in.
As with many finales, there's just enough recapping in "Save Rock and Roll" so that anyone who's missed the previous 10 parts of this undeniably epic series. No spoilers, except to let you know that there's still rock N in Heaven, and Elton John is God.
Also, blood stains are a bitch to get out of white clothing.
An older man drives of being young again in this fantastical (and fantastic) video for Elton John. It's not the kind of sentiment that will resonate with the kids and the snarkers, but it's a video that deserves attention thanks to director Brent Bonacorso's flawless execution.
