Good Morning! Paul for Corny to round off the week.
On this February 25th--Here Comes The George.
Let's celebrate The Quiet Beatle's birthday on Question Of The Day (just past 9AM) with a dip into his rich songbook--but performed by others.
Here's what we played:
Richie Havens - "Here Comes the Sun"
Billy Preston - "My Sweet Lord"
Leon Russell - "Beware of Darkness"
Frank Sinatra - "Something"
It's hard to believe, but, the youngest of the Beatles would have turned 70 years old today...or was it yesterday?! George Harrison was born in Liverpool on February 25, 1943. At least, that's what he thought for many years. Even though most sources still list his birthday as being February 25, it's quite possible that he was actually born on February 24. Later in his life, George found out that birth records say that he was born just before midnight of February 24, 1943. That said, George's birth certificate lists February 25 as the day.
George Harrison’s late ‘80s commercial comeback started with this remake of the 1962 song originally recorded by James Ray. “Got My Mind Set On You” had two music videos to support it, but this one is probably more commonly known. The song itself is catchy as heck and this video adds even more fun, because it’s filled with George’s playful humor. It was great to see George Harrison back on the charts and on everyone’s mind! Set your mind to September 7 for the ‘80s themed “’FUV Boat”!
