Sending out a posthumous BSBdG today to GEORGE HARRISON, who would have been 65 years of age.
10 of my favorite Harrisongs, both solo and with the Beatles, in no particular order and subject to change at the drop of a Krishna consciousness button:
Apple Scruffs, from All Things Must Pass
Within You Without You, from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Old Brown Shoe, B-side to "The Ballad of John & Yoko", appears on Past Masters Vol. 2
Simply Shady, from Dark Horse
Be Here Now, from Living in the Material World
Don't Bother Me, from With The Beatles
Something, from Abbey Road
Life Itself, from Somewhere in England
Behind That Locked Door, from All Things Must Pass
If I Needed Someone, from Rubber Soul
I need to expand this to 25 someday.
Oh, by the way, George's Wikipedia entry has this annotation:
Harrison started a rumor that he was born on 24 February as a joke. All reliable sources show his birth date as 25 February.
You know you can always rely on Wikipedia for the facts. Regardless, I don't know for sure about the veracity of this one way or the other, so until I am convinced otherwise I continue to cite 2/25. Here's a copy of his birth certificate, which appeared as part of a trade ad for his 1976 LP Thirty-Three and One-Third.
