Now you're allowed to take one Beatles' book, we're going to supply you with The Bible and the complete works of Shakespeare. What book will you choose?

This Guitar (Can't Keep From Crying)

Brainwashed

... this is freakin' impossible

um

uh 

I guess

Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea (STOP JUDGING ME)

As for a book, I have to say the Anthology, though I Me Mine is very tempting.

I would never judge you on BTDATDBS, it is one of George's happiest songs and you definitely need some cheerfulness if you're stuck on a desert island for 60 years.

 

Good pick with Anthology btw.

I Don't Want To Do It -- I can't survive on a desert island without 'Marwa Blues' and 'Sir Frankie'. I SIMPLY CANNOT. Thou cruel and unnatural creature, @AppleScruffJunior! paul-mccartney

...
...

But I'll do it anyway, peer pressure is one hell of a drug a-hard-days-night-george-10

It depends on whether or not I have my guitar on this island; if I do, then there are a lot of Harrisongs which I could reasonably approximate enough not to pine for the original too much, such as 'Run Of The Mill '.

Without guitar:
'Run Of The Mill '
Your Love Is Forever'
'Miss O'Dell'

With guitar:
'Crackerbox Palace'
'Long, Long, Long ' (if Beatles are allowed; if not, then 'Miss O'Dell')
'This Is Love'

Without Marwa and Frankie I don't know where to begiiiiiiiinnnnnnn a-hard-days-night-ringo-14 but I tried a-hard-days-night-paul-10

If only one were to survive, then I think I'd want 'This Is Love'.

The only book I'd want is Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, which isn't a Beatles book... hm, how about A Spaniard In The Works?

You are on a desert island, and unfortunately you can only have 3 George songs to play with for the rest of your time on the island. There's a caveat to your choices though, you cannot pick anything that features on Let It Roll: Songs by George Harrison

What do you pick?

The Light That Has Lighted The World
This Guitar (Can't Keep From Crying)
Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea

Fab choices all (and I will allow you your guitar Bebu), and 'Spaniard in the Works' is yours.

For the day that's in it. My favourite moment from Let It Be , George helping Ringo with Octopus's Garden , and showing George Martin the song that Ringo's brought in. Those first few seconds are so cute.

We were quite shameful last December and didn't do Georgemas even though we planned to :/ So seeing as February is George's birth month, we might as well have it now! 

Every day if somebody could post at least one video, photo, quote, lyric whatever from George that would be great- just note if there's more than 2 videos on the one page if you could spoiler any 3rd, 4th etc. video as they can slow down the page considerably. 

George used to pronounce 'February' quite cutely as 'Febrooary' so I think that's what we'll call this 'Georgemas'.

 

So for George's Febrooary Day 1: 

It has to be his first song, the rather sulky George complaining about people bothering him when he's sick.

George's Febrooary Day 2:

This one is pretty explanatory (and a nice self-insertion)- George's 21st birthday.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tfBx0XDJ2vQ

 

"I don't rather fancy 21, I much rather liked 20"- you and me both, George.

I can safely say I didn't get as many cards as George.

 

By the way if anyone else wants to post anything today feel free to, it's not a 'One Febrooary Post Per Day' or anything like that.

George's Febrooary day 3:
I'm just going to leave this here, I haven't been able to get enough of it for several days now. I think I actually like it better than Ringo's, just because I love George's voice. ahdn_george_06heart (Sorry, Ringo. His is The Real One and it's more of a Ringo kind of song but George is just so George a-hard-days-night-paul-7)


What's been eating at me particularly is how perfect the guitar is. The main riff is so perfect and twinkly and George, and the slide solo... feck, don't get me started on how divine it is -- so simple and yet it's everything, just like George's playing always is a-hard-days-night-paul-7 heartheartheart

Another example of that is 'I'll Still Love You' and it's a rare example of where I prefer Ringo's version to George's. The arrangement of Ringo's could very easily be a Bond tune. 

 

George sued Ringo because he didn't like the way Ringo had recorded it. They look back laughingly about it in this interview and George looks so embarrassed that Ringo brought it up.
