Mid-Week Songs: The Quiet Beatle


Twenty-two years ago today, George Harrison passed away from lung cancer at the age of 58. His legacy, both as The Beatles' lead guitarist and in his later solo career, is matched by very few musicians now or in the past. With the recent release of The Beatles' new, and likely final recording "Now And Then", the group gained new attention some 61 years after the release of their first single, "Love Me Do" (a remix of which appears on the other side of "Now And Then"). Harrison's compositions were outnumbered by the Lennon and McCartney songwriting juggernaut, but he can claim authorship of two unforgettable songs, which we feature today: "Something", featuring his first wife and muse Pattie Boyd, and "Here Comes The Sun." Enjoy.
