Here Comes The Sun
« on: May 27, 2005, 04:45:13 PM »

Just listened to this on the radio. I know I've badmouthed Georghe in the past, but what an excellent song. Still sounds so fresh, and the production is awesome (even the handclaps sound good).
Listening to it alongside modern stuff just reminded what genius's they were.
(and it being the hottest (32c) and sunnyest day of the year probably helped. I just realised that)

Easily my favorite Beatles song.

The riffs are superb, the arrangement is simple but couldn't be better, and the overall atmosphere is just so mellow and relaxed.

Yeah George really closed the gap between John and Paul with his songwriting on Abbey Road.

One of George's masterpieces, along with Something and While My Guitar Gently Weeps.

When George worked hard, some of his songs managed to be even better than John&Paul's. Here Comes The Sun is a perfect example :) Great and so fresh-sounding song this is, one of the best in Abbey Road.

A nice quote...

"Ringo's tom fills really make the song, but funnily enough, he hated doing them because he could never remember what he was did one take to the next. I think that's why his fills are so spectacular - he felt that he would never reproduce them, so he'd better get 'em right." -Geoff Emerick on Here Comes The Sun

"John was the best. I loved John. He was fine singer, a fine musician and he was a fine friend." -Ringo
“He's (Ringo) every bloody bit as warm, unassuming, funny, and kind as he seems. He was quite simply the heart of the Beatles.” – John

Yes! Great pic! And thank you!!! Look, they are listening carefully to us, saying, "What are you discussing out there, the Beatles? Wow! We`ll take notes, definitely!"

It is indeed a very awesome song. I have to agree that George really did a great job writing that song. They will always be remembered generations after generations, as this has always been their legacy. But it is such a shame that they are human too, otherwise they will continue to entertain us for years to come. How I wished that someone could have gotten all their talents, or just simply gives us the Beatles feel. But still I would not like to see someone replacing them, so might as well leave it as it is.

'Here Comes the Sun' is such an amazing song -- George REALLY made me a believer of me with this song.

It really seems in my opinion to be one of the most universally liked songs. With mainstream listeners and the hardcore fans.
I absolutely love it.

That's a great video clip! The guitar solo in the "Sun Sun Sun" section is fantastic. Wish it had made it to the final version.
