‘True Love’ is the seventh song on George Harrison’s seventh solo album Thirty Three & ⅓.

The song was written by Cole Porter, and first appeared in the 1956 musical High Society. A duet between Bing Crosby and Grace Kelly, it was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song. See more…

Listened to this a few days back and absolutely love it to bits. George is the least likely person to cover a Cole Porter song. 

Once again, those wonderful Pythons Eric Idle and Neil Innes helped make this video.

When I think of ‘True Love’ it brings to mind Carl Perkin’s ‘Your True Love’ which George also performed

F**king hell, that’s the best quality of that video I’ve ever seen. George’s rarest video ever- the copy that used to be circulated around had bloody ads running on a ticker at the bottom of the screen and you could barely make out anything, but you actually see George’s facial expressions in this!

 

Nice find SPB, have an appleapple01

(Also what is with the Harrison estate practically not acknowledging this video? I’m sure they have their own high quality version of it, that they could throw as an extra on a DVD or something)
