More congratulations, @50yearslate! apple01apple02(You get an entire apple! But maybe that doesn't matter, because Beatlebug already gave you seven). Although it is strangely unsettling to have someone on the leaderboard who ascended within my time here.

I've always seen each White Album as half an apple, only complete with the other one.

A song that some of the casual George fans might not have heard, one of my favourite ever George tracks (and it is featured on the best film Handmade ever made....Shanghai Surprise....).

Oh, I love this song! Definitely one of the better ones on Cloud 9.

I haven't seen Shanghai Surprise, but I'm not a fan of the song Shanghai Surprise.

I love songs that have that faux-Chinese feel with a pop song, like Bowie's China Doll. Yes the lyrics for SS are atrocious but I still bop along to it every time I hear it:

"Back streets so crowded that no room to swing a cat/I'd like to know you but you'r acting so coolie/I'm finding out pursued by evil looking dudes/ It's getting hot for me like tofu when it deep fries"

How could you not love such artistic genius? 

I also love singing Vicki Brown's parts, I wish George had done more duets with women- we are solely lacking them.

Eh, I don't know. It doesn't sound as Harrisonic to me and the whole time the lady is singing I can't help but think this would be better if George were singing it.

and I don't. Even 'Breath Away From Heaven' seems a little bit weird to me, though it's much better than SS. But to each their own mccartney-shrug_01_gif 'Someplace Else' is a really good song.

I don't know why I wrote Doll, I have a problem when I'm typing with my mates my head is thinking one thing, my brain the other. In saying that, I'm going to forever refer to it now as 'Doll' just to piss you off 🙂 .

Heh my own post just reflected what I was explaining, I meant to type 'my head is thinking one thing, my fingers the other'.

A fun little creative challenge for you all, here is a photo of George perfect for meme-making.

I watched the Crackerbox Palace video for the first time today. Highly amusing.

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.
