The songwriting collaboration between George Harrison & Eric Clapton on "Badge" DIRECTLY influenced and played a part in George composing "Here Comes The Sun"....Harrison even made a NOTE to himself re including a bridge section chord sequence based directly from their song "Badge" this when composing the Beatles song...
Go to Wikipedia, type in "Here Comes The Sun", it says:
"The song, one of Harrison's best known Beatles contributions alongside "Something", ORIGINATED from a Songwriting Collaboration between Harrison and close friend ERIC CLAPTON called "Badge"....it features a similar Arpeggiated Guitar Riff on the Bridge section..."
the Link is:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/here_comes_the_sun
...or just go into wikipedia and type in the song's title...
During the writing of the song Harrison actually made a note to himself to BASE the Bridge of "Here Comes The Sun" directly on the Bridge from their co-written song "Badge"

Further acknowledgement that Eric Clapton duly collaborated on "Here Comes The Sun" via "Badge" can be found using this Link:

On "Badge" George Harrison plays an Electric guitar "Chiming bell" style intro to the bridge section...written by George & Eric Clapton...that George made a note to himself of to RE-UTILISE in the intro to the bridge section of "Here Comes The Sun"....played on an Acoustic guitar by George just prior to the line: "Sun Sun Sun here it Comes"
If you listen to the two songs these gutair lines ARE very similar...
This ties in with what I heard George Harrison say in a 1976 Radio interview re how after he had come up with the main song walking around Eric's garden and watching the sun come up....Clapton & he then finalised the guitar parts together on their Acoustics....and Harrison later completed the song himself while on Holiday in Sardinia.
Eric Clapton COULD...if he had wanted to...have thus Legally argued for a Co-Songwriting credit as George Harrison HAD openly made a NOTE to himself to duly INCLUDE the Bridge section guitar lines from THEIR Co-written song "Badge" within "Here Comes The Sun".....however, as I remember George saying...WHEN he offered Eric a Co-writing credit...Eric flatly refused !
These various other websites...including Wikipedia ...all acknowledge the clear Link between "Here Comes the Sun" and Cream's song "Badge"....
I am NOT a Liar...and any Beatle Historian with the most basic knowledge...OUGHT to KNOW all this....yes ?
