You know I love that woman of mine
And I need her all of the time
Now I'm telling you
That woman, the woman don't make me blue


I can't understand why the part above , was splitted in original version

I think George was right to omit them in the final recording as they seem to jar the song. It flows better without them, going from the solo straight to the final verse.

I think it makes the song seem a bit more profesionals without those ones, and I don't think that the song would flow as nice as it does had he left them in.

The lyrics to that section are quite weak and forced, even though George sings them very well.

Undoubtedly one of the all-time greatest songs.

Honestly, I don't think George was ever that consistent of a lyricist and I'm sure he scrapped a lot of lyrics like that which were just obviously low quality like that verse. As for the song itself, I have to dissent for the popular opinion--I think it is a very well-recorded and well-performed song on the album, but the song itself is kind of weak and boring compositionally. It's why no one has ever done a decent cover it (I think Frank Sinatra's version plenty much killed the song for me for all eternity). A well-written song should be able to be performed by many different musicians and hold up. George wrote plenty of songs of that quality--WMGGW, I Me Mine, My Sweet Lord to name a few--but this one just don't hold up being performed beyond the original recording. That makes it a classic recording, but not much else.

I'm not a girl who misses much.

I'm trying to find a quote about Something which I remember reading recently. Can anyone help? If I remember correctly, Harrison mentions how he recorded the solo when he was drunk, then forgot all about it until he came to hear it back another time. When he did he was pleasantly surprised at how it sounded.

Does that sound familiar? Can anyone provide the actual quote? I thought I'd have put it in the Something article, but for some reason I didn't.

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away
