I think I've caught Holey's This Song obsession bug!ahdn_george_08I really love the sax and Billy Preston's piano playing in that instrumental break. Plus that part kinda sounds a little like the intro to The Hollies' Long Cool Woman In A Black Dress, so it's got that going for it. a-hard-days-night-george-9

Here's a difficult would-you-rather question: Crackerbox Palace or This Song?

Love one another.

Yay!!! The best part is I'm so obsessed with it I've blackmailed my band into covering it (we haven't started yet...) 

But I agree, the piano playing is SO FAB!!

Crackerbox without a doubt. I love them both, but that one has a lot more personal significance for me.

Apologies I did not see this before I posted!

This Song. It's my favourite solo Beatles song - Crackerbox Palace didn't stand a chance.

Crackerbox Palace! I adore both, but This Song is a little bit less interesting to me.

Crackerbox Palace has the better video, but I'd say This Song is the better song.

Yes, I imagine so.

Anyways, I'm listening to Behind That Locked Door for the first time and it's lovely. (surprise, surprise!)

Behind That Locked Door is one of my favourite George songs.

Have you heard the also lovely cover version by First Aid Kit (it's available on YouTube)?

And in the end
The love you take is equal to the love you make

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8I have not. The only solo George cover I have heard, remembered, and enjoyed is David Bowie's cover of Try Some Buy Some.

and now I'm listening to I Live For You, also for the first time, and it sounds so familiar. Beautiful Girl Boy song.
