It sounds more like the intro to It Don't Come Easy to me...


Ringo Starr - It Don't Come Easy


Yes, that's true! And that was played by George too, right? ;)

Beautiful and lilting song, Here Comes The Sun.  The perfect way to start off Side 2 of Abbey Road.  In those days we had LPs and you had to take the time to flip the record on the turntable.

I always liked how George Harrison and Paul Simon performed it on Saturday Night Live...

I've always thought that a guitar portion of Cream's "Badge" (recorded in October 1968, with George on rhythm guitar, being co-author of the song with Eric) was pretty similar to a part of "Here Comes The Sun"

Was that recycled to be used in "Here Comes The Sun"?


This copy of lyrics by George seems to suggest so. Son of Badge I think it says?
