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.
