#245 SOMETHING The Beatles
George Harrison drew inspiration from James Taylor's "Something in the Way She Moves" when he penned 1 of his most beautiful songs: "Something". Unaware of its timeless quality, Harrison first offered it to Joe Cocker to record before presenting it to the other Beatles. The Fab Four cut it for 1969's 'Abbey Road' album.
The song deals with his love for then wife Patti. The track was issued as part of a double A-sided single with "Come Together". Thus, "Something" was the 1st Harrison song to be released as an A-side. The disc reached #3 in the USA. It topped the Australian and Canadian charts. In Britain, the single peaked at #4.
This is a list made up of the songs I enjoy the most, ranked in order of preference: the higher we go, the more I cherish them. Some were released as singles, others as album tracks. Some are obscure; others were worldwide hits or have universal appeal. They aren't always the most famous or popular, but simply a personal choice. I have excluded songs from the last few years in order to get a better idea of a song's lasting impression. I hope you find some new tracks to love, or re-discover some past favourites.
2 new instalments are added each day (every 12 hours) with 1 of the remaining 300 songs as well as moving down from #1201 to 1500, with 5 of those songs added daily.
