what have we become


  

This is the George thread and this is what we do

Oh and don't forget "love" he says "love" in an absolutely brilliant way!  I think the Rutles did it best; "loove."

I loove George.

I always spelled it 'luve' but I think that's more like Robert Plant's pronunciation of The Word than George's. And how can we forget the eternal Febrooary? a-hard-days-night-george-9

(I think if you're British or otherwise of a non-rhotic accent then you'll be more inclined to spell is 'curr' rather than 'cuhh', similar to how the Brits say 'arse' when they mean 'AHHHHs' -- evocative spelling is my specialty ahdn_john_08_gif)

Correct, I was just spelling it phonetically with an American accent.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 That one's special. It isn't exactly that it's a favourite Harrisong... it seems to transcend being by George and is just this beautiful piece of atmosphere from another realm. heart

@Zig likes it too. john-lennon-salute_gif

Yes, but most of them just reek of George and are dripping with his soul, you know? And I love them because of that, but Ballad Of Sir Frankie Crisp isn't exactly as Harrisonic in an overt way, it's much more subtle; it could have been a Pink Floyd song or something, I don't know, and I love it because it's so pure, it's like a watercolour painting (no shade, Mr Kite! a-hard-days-night-george-10)

Fair enough, I suppose. Tbh it seems pretty Georgeish to me, but then again what do I know. mccartney-shrug_01_gif

I wonder if there's such a thing as a George song that I dislike? So far I haven't heard one.

I suppose it is, but it's got an ethereality to it that is distinct from most other things he's done... he's typically a little more straightforward with pouring his soul from him to you. BOSFC is more evocative than direct.

Nope. a-hard-days-night-john-6

(To be fair, I think there's a few I'm not keen on, but it's something like... three or four out of his entire discography... mccartney-shrug_01_gif)

Well yeah that's different, there are a couple I'm meh about (Ding Dong Ding Dong ,  for one) but I don't think I actively dislike any.

Here's a question that just popped into my head: What word does George say best?

I'd say "brackets" of course, but as I have previously stated the way he says "care" is a-hard-days-night-ringo-6heartbeatlemaniacs_02_gif

I'm personally very fond of the Harrisonian pronunciation of 'about' (I know, I know a-hard-days-night-ringo-12): 'abaut'. I also really like his pronunciation of 'something'. a-hard-days-night-george-4

Let's put it this way ..i have favorite songs all around the albums..
here are some of them:
-Stuck inside a cloud
cloud nine
marwa blues
looking for my life
my swet Lord (2000)
i had have you any time
the light that has lighted the world
that which i have lost
Circles
world of stone
learning how to love you
i can't get over you
isn't a pity
Something
don't let me wait too long
baby don't run away
beautiful girl
woman don't you cry for me
behind that locked door
i live for you
I Me Mine
just for today
be here now
who can see it
cheer down
that is all
someplace else
Dheradun
art of dying
deep blue
and many others...

I'd say "Those are some good songs you've got there" but they're Harrisongs so that goes without saying...
