George Harrison

The Beatles are so important to me, and such popular icons that it’s hard to write anything novel about them.

Perhaps the most overlooked aspect of The Beatles is their sense of humor. George exudes sweetness and good humor.

I like “My Sweet Lord” despite its similarity to “He’s So Fine”. The album All Things Must Pass is by far his most important work after The Beatles, and I would argue that all of his best work was with The Beatles. iTunes does not have a copy of the live album Concert For Bangladesh, which might have a song or two worth adding. Here’s “My Sweet Lord” from that concert:

With Paul Simon on Saturday Night Live in 1976:

    Well, George was my favorite Beatle when I was growing up. Because of his music – no…it was his chiseled jawline!

    And another observation – George’s songs as a single don’t rate very high either in your collection or in mine.

    Possible additions to your George list would be “Poor Little Girl” and “Blow Away”. Other George-type songs would be “Handle With Care” and “End of the Line” from the Traveling Wilburys, and “Sunshine LIfe for Me” from the “Ringo” album.
