R.I.P. George Harrison by Skiddy the Butt Kangaroo on 2001-11-30 04:46:27

When coming on line, my ISP flashed up the news that sadly George Harrison died this morning aged 58. Would like to propose a HIgh Fidelity-esque, Top 5 things associated with George Harrison and Top 5 songs about death Top 5 George Harrison 1. My Sweet Lord - most succesful solo song 2. Travelling Wilburys - perhaps the definitive super group 3. Appearance in the Simpsons with the B Sharps. 4. Popularisation of Oriental Mysticism 5. Ever changing facial hair choice. Top 5 songs about death 1. Danny Boy - Various 2. Knocking on heaven's door - Bob Dylan 3. Tears in heaven - Eric Clapton 4. My Sacrifice - Creed (bit of a new one but still valid) 5. Let Life live - The Chi-Lites Let's have your ideas esp. you Kid

  Top 5 About George. 1. Here Comes The Sun (my favourite Beatles track), 2. The use of different instruments (sitar, etc.), 3. I did enjoy the B#s, 4. The album All Things Must Pass, 5. His dignified and somewhat sombre lifestyle. (As with all the Beatles save for John). He left a great legacy. Top 5 songs about death. 1. Knockin' On Heaven's Door - Dylan (Although G'n'R is good). 2. My Mummy's Dead - John Lennon. 3. I Didn't Want To Wake You Up - Babybird. 4. Sinaloa Cowboys - Bruce Springsteen. 5. (Only available at MP3.com, but well worth it) Momma's Gonna Die This Xmas - Vaginal Croutons. Man, he left us more than we all realise.

  Just got the news as well. I seem to recall reading of a very sad Paul McCartney recently visiting George but figured it was another "tabloid" trick, overstating the seriousness of his condition. My Harrison favorites: "Within you Without you", "Taxman", "I Me Mine", "Something", "Old Brown Shoe" and the now poignant "All Things Must Pass". I know there are a few more I'm leaving out but these are my personal favorites.
