My Sweet Lord- George Harrison (my favorite songs)

billkozyBillkozy on 11/28/2016

November 29th is upon us, and on this day in 2001 the youngest Beatle, George Harrison, died at his home in Los Angeles. Trivia Question: What was the first song recorded by a former Beatle to hit #1? It was George Harrison's "My Sweet Lord" from his 1970 album, All Things Must Pass.

Many of us may be familiar with the legal history of the song. Mr. Harrison was sued by Bright Tunes Music, claiming that "My Sweet Lord" was too similar to the 1963 Chiffons hit "He's So Fine." In his testimony, George described how he wrote the song in 1969 after a show in Copenhagen, and how he came up with it and was helped by the band and Billy Preston in tweaking while he wrote the lyrics. George also said he was inspired by The Edwin Hawkins Singers' song "Oh Happy Day," not "He's So Fine."

But in the end, the court ruled against George Harrison because of the vastly similar musical motifs, "G-E-D" and "G-A-C-A-C." The judge ruled that although he did not believe Harrison did this consciously, it was not a defense. Some people theorize that because Phil Spector was the producer and arranger of the record, that's why it came out so similar to "He's So Fine" instead of "Oh Happy Day."

To me, the record is a beautiful one and bouyantly solemn. Famous rock critic Jon Landau called it sensational, while Peter Lavezzoli, wrote "'My Sweet Lord' was everything that people wanted to hear in November 1970: shimmering harmonies, lustrous acoustic guitars, a solid Ringo Starr backbeat, and an exquisite [Harrison] guitar solo."
