Behind the music of a Beatle

Behind the music of a Beatle
LOS ANGELES - Remember George Harrison's unforgettable opening line in the Beatles' 1969 hit "Something"? "Something in the way she moves / attracts me like no other woman."

Of course not, because he sings "lover," not "woman." But "woman" is what Harrison wrote before changing one word that could have spelled the difference between a hit and a miss, an edit that's on display at the Grammy Museum in "George Harrison: Living in the Material World," a show focusing on the man pigeonholed early as "the quiet Beatle."The handwritten lyrics to "Something," among a half-dozen samples of Harrison songs lent to the museum by his widow, Olivia Harrison, also include a verse that Harrison rejected before putting perhaps his best-known song into final form.

Life is what happens when your busy making other plans. John Lennon
