George's Romantic Side On Songs
« on: January 21, 2006, 06:31:56 PM »

I think that George had a romantic side of him when he wrote his songs. Here's a few that I think are very romantic songs that George wrote:

Your Love Is Forever
That Is All
Dark Sweet Lady
Never Get Over You
Don't Let Me Wait Too Long
Learning How To Love You
True Love

He did not write True Love by the way, but it's true George wrote some great love songs. Pattie was a good muse to him and Olivia might have touched a string as well. But Something is of course one of the greatest love songs of all times.

Your Love Is Forever is probably the best love song ever written.

Probably not.

It's not regarded by the world as the greatest love song, but for me the melody, slide, lyrics, vocals and production on the whole are beautiful. It's relatively unknown also, which is also good.

This is excellent detective work, Hello Goodbye. The evidence was before us all the time.

After all, George sang:

Hm, my lord (hare krishna)
My, my, my lord (hare krishna)

hare = another name for "rabbit"

PROVED AND PROVED.  ;D

George and Pattie wore rabbit fur coats on their wedding day.

This is amazing! Now, finally, the lyrics make perfect sense:

and life flows on within you (proving that he is, internally, a rabbit) and without you (the dead rabbit-fur coats)


Hello Goodbye, you are an awesome researcher. *tips hat*

But there are yet some more clues.  

The Oranges' Rabbit songs are produced by George Harrison, Dhani Harrison and Jeff Lynne.


Jenny Lewis and The Watson Twins' album called "Rabbit Fur Coat" includes their cover of "Handle With Care," written by Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, and Tom Petty ... The Traveling Wilburys.



The evidence continues to mount.

Excellent work, Hello Goodbye! The evidence is accumulating rapidly. Just a few more posts, and we'll have proven to the world that George Harrison was not merely the lead guitarist for the Beatles, but an actual rabbit, with habbits and affinities consistent with Oryctolagus cuniculus... er, rabbits.

I've been doing a little more research as well. Take this piece of telling evidence: the Playboy interview with The Beatles published in February 1965. In it, George states, "There's no real fun in a Bunny's fluffy tail."

How would he know that?

None of the Beatles hung out at the Playboy club. They considered that beneath them, an activity (to quote Ringo) "for dirty old men, not for the likes of us." How then does George come by this special insight into a Bunny's tail being no fun?

The only answer is... he had one.

Yes, as a rabbit he would have had to suffer the indignity of a bunny's fluffy tail. I submit for further evidence this George quote:

"I don't wear small shoes, or tight pants that squash your b***s."

Let's examine this statement in light of these recently unearthed facts.

"I don't wear small shoes..." What is he trying to tell us here? Why pick out shoes so specifically? In all the animal kingdom, what particular animal has the most urgent need for large shoes?



I leave it to you to determine.  

As to the second part of the statement ("tight pants"), we know this was wishful thinking, because George did in fact wear tight trousers on many occasions. (I will spare you the details; just click on any George picture thread.) Now, the fact is that these trousers would be tight in front and in back. In short, I believe they put pressure on the bunny tail.

Chilling example: poor George is hoisted aloft at the Whiskey-a-Go-Go club following the Jane Masfield drink-throwing incident. You can almost feel the pressure on that poor bunny tail.



IMHO I believe that George was speaking from experience, but obliquely, as the Beatles often did. I believe he would be relieved that we fans picked up on these clues, and followed them through to the truth. No man is an island-- but he may be a rabbit. And I think we should accept and love him all the more for this startling revelation.

Very nice work too, harihead.  Your deductions follow precise geometric logic.

Here's another clue:





The only animal common to both album covers is the rabbit who we know to be George.

Wow, the subtleties of this amaze me.

For example, in the Jive Bunny cover art, they tried to fool us by putting the bunny in the John Lennon position. But we know the rabbit always wears a white suit. Proof:



Generally, George was very coy about flaunting his rabbitness on his covers, but I believe this cover gives him away. Note that he is positioned in front of the car, calling attention to the plight of his fellow rabbits which too often end up as road kill. George may be subtle, but his social conscience was always active.
