heart this track, just like almost all the others on ATMP  a-hard-days-night-george-9

I played it for Silly Mum and she said, 'Whossat? George?' and I said 'Yip, such a sweet song', and she came back with, 'He can actually write a sweet song?' I mentally paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif , but all I said was 'Oh yea, he wrote lots of sweet songs, you just have to know where to look.' 

Silly Mum is not exactly a Harrifan ... sigh... a-hard-days-night-paul-7

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote

But lots of George songs are sweet! It really shows George's strong country roots, he clearly listened to a lot of female country vocalists, that much is obvious from the melody. And of course the Dylan factor!

The following people thank ewe2 for this post:

Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.

One of my favourite Harrisongs. ahdn_george_08

Although, I must say that I like the demo from the Living in the Material World documentary-soundtrack-thingy better. I think that version sounds a lot more personal and intimate, like if George was right in front of you playing the song to try to brighten you up. a-hard-days-night-george-9 The first time I heard it, I nearly cried.

 

Really tugs on the heartstrings, that one. heart

MISTAAAAAAAAH MOOOONLIIIIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!

That is all I'm living for, your love and nothing more. And that is all.

I love the demo version. Fitting this should be posted on Bob Dylan's birthday as it was written as a song of encouragement to him.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.
