  The Chatter Box : Blathering On

I seem to remember that being the way my older brother spelled "George" when he was little. Anyway, I'm sitting here listening to George Harrison's awesome last album, "Brainwashed", and there's a song on it, the first one, that I think would be great for Palin's tv series theme song kind of thing... it's called "Any Road" and it's so great! "If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there."

I miss George. (sniff)

Yeah, I miss George too. He was and still is my favourite beatle.
So his last album is good ? will have to get it.

They were magic, you know. Nobody can listen to "Marwa Blues" and not believe that. Not your traditional wizardy magic- the real kind that comes with all true talent.

I know how you feel. Geogre was my fav too. And I love his last album as well. Not much more to say about our lost friend... Just wish he was still with us.

Although George was not my fave (it was John - I even can't tell you why, I kind of fell in love with him when I was 15 -very silly...), I had a really weird experience: Having been a Beatles fan for years, I somehow never was into George. And a few days before he died (of course not knowing he's going to die that soon!)I read a lot about him, I don't know why I suddenly got into it...I looked at pictures and thought about him and on the day he died (!) I was sitting in the kitchen with my mother and I was playing George Harrison songs to her. And well, the next day I heard he had died. I can't describe it precisely, I'm lacking of words here...but I can tell you it felt strange! I actually like that spiritual touch he has in many of his songs. I think he was a person who was searching for a spiritual path...and hopefully found it.

George was a good man. Not many of them around...

When I was little, Paul was always my favourite, because I was left-handed and played piano like him.... and I went through a John time, that I-want-to-wear-shades and be-cool thing, and listened to "Gimme Some Truth" a lot. And I've always loved George, who after all was my mom's favourite too. AND! I get to go see Ringo this summer at the Britt Festival in Oregon. So my favourite beatle? John, Paul, George, and Ringo. Practically no distinction.
Now if you get me into who was the best looking.....
Re: Jawg by Rusted on 30 March 2003 11:09am
George was me favorite as well. :O(

It was originally Paul. I got to see him when he did his latest Back in the US tour, and he still impresses me greatly, but somewhere about four years ago I was hit by his shyness, his earnestness, his spirituality, his simplicity...on so many levels. He just seemed like such an overlooked wonderful character to me.

I found out about the news in a way I would have prefered was different - I walk into my morning class only to have my friend ask me "I'm assuming you heard about George Harrison, right?" My friend and family have asked me a smiliar question about other artists I like, but the meaning of it has never turned out to be as sad. I don't think my friend was *quite* expecting the way it would effect me!

As far as the new album, yes, go out and buy it, I think it's great! "Stuck Inside a Cloud" immediately hit me upon first hearing, and I was quite surprised to hear it on the music systems of department stores!
