Paul Gilbert - It's All Too Much (The Beatles cover)
Youtube C291esMLGps

i can't find a full length original so a cover must suffice....whenevre i'm testing out a guitar, this is about the first song i play.

the "to your MA!" intro is either that - George's cheeky challenge, or, some argue it is a dedication "To Jorma!!"  that would be Jorma Kaukonen, reflecting the Beatles half-baked dip into West Coast psychedelia (George went to Haight Ashbury in early 1967 expecting to find good vibes, peace and love.  instead he found dirty kids scamming each other and petty crime running rampant.  disillusioned, for sure.)

A looooong time ago, I had that album on cassette and would have my parents play it on road trips.  That one song?  Mom eventually got sick of it, and would fast forward through it.

The best song George Harrison ever wrote is this one:

While My Guitar Gently Weeps (Taken from Concert For George)
Youtube CrTMc2i6Lzc


Bonus: Eric Clapton played lead guitar on the original recording. Also, the man on stage who looks like George Harrison's ghost is his son Dhani, who could be his twin. Those Harrison genes are strong.

Coco LaFemme: /My Sweet Lord comes in No. 2 for me

Something and WYWY are strong; definitely top 5.  If I Needed Someone is a favorite. I Want To Tell You!

but Here Comes  the Sun is just s o, so good.  Last sumer my sister Miscarried.  When we were digging the grave, i found myself absentmindedly singing HCtS - "and I say, it's alright".  backbreaking labor.  singing it over and over.  the next day I asked her if i could play a song at the funeral and she said yes.

day of the funeral she asked me what i was going to play and I said HCtS.  her face kinda fell and and she goes "really? wow.  that's.....great."  i'm confused.

service begins.  she says a few things, then she takes out of the bag she was holding, solar powered sunflower lights and sunflowers.  said she used to walk in her sunflower garden talking to her baby - i'm tearing up the memory - and said she wanted it to have sunflowers around it forever.  "we are placing some of the sunflowers in the casket, so it will always have the sun with it."   then she's like "and my brother is going to play a song that is just.....perfect.  we didn't plan this, it just kinda....it was meant to be, i guess."

truly a The Great Magnettm works in mysterious ways situation.  I got through the first verse, then I couldn't sing.  basically an acoistic tribute...

The British film industry owes a great debt of gratitude to George Harrison for providing desperately needed financial backing during a very difficult time for British cinema.

I kinda misremembered it - i thought paul had a visual reaction.  but  basically a very sad thing to see.

and as Paul says, "we all felt we'd beccome a bit, y'know, 'overproduced', and so we decided to 'get back' to our old ways.  just us.  and the sessions were bollocks.   and everyone looked at me like, "do ya maybe feel like, errr, producin', a bit?'  so i tried....and....they didn't like that.  I couldn't win.  I hear there's footage of it...."

The song is an absolute clunker. It made it to the top of the charts and got tons of radio play back in the day. The studio bosses were happy.

Even great artists come up with crapola now and then. The Police had theirs with "Doo Doo Doo Dah Dah Dah".
