‘The Day The World Gets ’Round’ is the tenth song on George Harrison’s fourth solo album Living In The Material World.

Harrison wrote the song in New York in August 1971. See more…

I started to write ‘The Day The World Gets ’Round’ in New York the day after the Bangla Desh Concert. It was a very emotional period for me because a lot of good people had helped with its success, which made me very optimistic about certain things.
At the same time I felt slightly enraged because, let’s face it, the whole problem and how to solve it lies within the power of the governments and world leaders. They have resources, food, money and wealth enough for twice our world’s population, yet they choose to squander it on weapons and other objects that destroy mankind.

It seems to me to be a poor state of affairs when ‘pop stars’ are required to set an example in order to solve this type of problem. If everyone would wake-up and do even a little, there could be no misery in the world.
