The results of our latest readers poll: George Harrison's 10 best Beatles songs.
03. Here Comes the Sun (1969)
"Here Comes the Sun" kicks off side two of the Abbey Road album.
Perhaps Harrison explains it best in his 1980 autobiography, I Me Mine:
"'Here Comes the Sun' was written at the time when Apple was getting like school, where we had to go and be businessmen: 'Sign this' and 'sign that.' Anyway, it seems as if winter in England goes on forever, by the time spring comes you really deserve it. So one day I decided I was going to sag off Apple and I went over to Eric Clapton's house. The relief of not having to go see all those dopey accountants was wonderful, and I walked around the garden with one of Eric's acoustic guitars and wrote 'Here Comes the Sun.'"
Here's a nice live version from 1987 featuring Harrison, Starr, Jeff Lynne and Phil Collins:
