Quite possibly my favorite Harrisong, the lyrics depict a sort of fall from grace. The mellow, yet sorrowful melody add dimension to the track. This song stands out to me on the Dark Horse album as a transparent look into the darker side of a beautiful man. It is to my knowledge that he sang this song with laryngitis. That apparently caused alot of bad comments towards this track, but I think it just adds to the real, confessional tone of the song. Maybe my personal experiences with the subject matter in the song makes me a little biased, but I think it's absolutely brilliant and undeservingly overlooked.

What do you think of this track?

I haven't listened to Dark Horse. I very much like the song, and your analysis. I'll have to check out the rest of the album.

It was the last George album I listened to in it's entirety. I recommend "Far East Man" and "It Is He (Jai Sri Krishna)" ahdn_george_08
