This song makes me so nostalgic. It's very summery.

  

Much of the song's appeal for me is nostalgic too. When the single was released I was 11 years old and obsessed with the radio and the local singles charts. And I was riding in the car with my dad when it came on the radio, and I was able to identify it as being by "a guy named George Harrison "...And my dad seemed surprised at the mention of the name, and when I asked why, he told me that George was one of the Beatles. And so that's the story of how I learned my second Beatle name! (I owned several Paul/Wings singles already so I certainly knew him)

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8That's awesome ahdn_ringo_09

I'd heard some solo George songs already when I first heard Blow Away, but my Beatles-only music philosophy did not include solo Beatles at that point in time, so I was not interested. But i heard Blow Away on the Beatles Channel and my dad wouldn't let me change it, so i listened to it and had it in my head for the rest of the afternoon and by the end of the day I was in love with it. So. Yeah. ahdn_john_08_gif

Whoah come on guys this video is AWESOME!!! A giant duck, George's horrible hair and his awful outfit is the BEST THING EVER!! 

Just kidding. I remember watching this video as a kid and loving it just because it was George. As someone in this thread said, he was just having fun with his videos a-hard-days-night-george-9a-hard-days-night-george-9

Without the video, the song is a great addition to George's incredible songbook. With the video, it's still a great addition and you get a free duck.

As I mentioned in my previous recent post, it's a great song, but I've always been stuck on the lyrics.

Is the last line in the chorus:

All it's got to take is a moment to make it blow away...

or:

All it's got to take is a warm wind to make it blow away...

or, something else?

 

It's been bugging me for a long time.

Anybody think the wistful air of looking back is enhanced by George mimicking The Shadows famous (sort of) dance step from the late 50's/early 60's yet? The same man who wrote 'Cry for a Shadow' surely putting in a sly reference to one of his heroes Hank Marvin? Else it's potentially Chuck Berry's duck walk and the duck is a big clue to nother influence.

Shame about the suit George wears. Seems to be influenced by 70's bad taste.

I've always thought it was funny how it looks like George shoots a spitball when he says "dabbed"
