Sad. Just like it is when anyone dies.

The world this morning feels a bit diminished, as an important piece of it has left. I'm working at home all day, so I guess I'll just listen to tunes.

George was always my favourite because he was so quiet and he wasn't the "pretty-boy", yet he was (arguably) the most talented musician of the bunch.

That's really too bad - 58 is too young.

He was needed elsewhere...

That's why indeed, only the "good die young".

Mom will need comforting today...

I was listening to the CBC this morning and learned that George was a big mover and shaker in the UK film industry.

Anyone remember the film, "The Life of Brian" by Monty Python. George was the producer.

"The candle that burns twice as bright burns only half as long."

...particularly apt today, as my second favorite Beatle dies in turn.

Thanks for it all, George. You were fab.

I guess my favorite would be "Something". It's such a beautiful, sensuous song.

I think he wrote "Octopus's Garden" as well, didn't he? That was one of my favorite songs as a kid. Particularly that middle part where they gurgle the tune during the instrumental break. At least, I think it was him who wrote it.

Edited to say: D'oh! It was Ringo who wrote Octopus's Garden! Oh well. I still loved it.

Actually, Octopus's garden is the Ringo Starr cut on the Abbey Road album...

My favorite Harrison tune, music wise, is "While my Guitar Gently Weeps" for the soul grabbing guitar licks.

On the other hand, I find myself humming "Here comes the Sun" these days, when the sun finally crests over the hills at around 10AM here in the Frozen North. Thanks Georges for brininging us all a little bit of warmth and hope!
(Try it tomorrow morning... makes your whole day better)
Here Comes The Sun

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,

and I say it's all right

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter

Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun

and I say it's all right

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces

Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun

and I say it's all right

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...

Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting

Little darling, it seems like years since it's been clear

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,

and I say it's all right

It's all right

No sweat Michelle. Ringo's pretty cool too.
He was actually older than the other Beatles, where Harrison was the youngest. Let me check and see how old he really is.

Born July 1940, which makes him 61.

I heard a blurb on the news lastnight that the Estate of George Harrison requests that those who are interested spend a minute in meditation today at 4:30 PM Eastern Time.
