8. The Light That Has Lighted the World

“The Light That Has Lighted The World” is one of those tunes that took me forever to appreciate. To those who don’t like introspective tunes, it comes across as dull as dishwater. But if one relaxes & allows the Zen-like melody some room to breathe, it can be very therapeutic.”

7. Who Can See It

“Who Can See It” is truly a gorgeous song. With some incredible singing and a majestic melody, this piece is truly a highlight of Harrison’s career. A beautiful song.”

5. The Day the World Gets ‘Round

“The Day The World Gets ‘Round” is a melodic protest song that bemoans man’s inhumanity to man. George caught a lot of flack for this tune’s lyrics, and they can come across as pretty self-righteous. I really don’t think that they were intended to sound that way. Frankly, George was entitled to his feelings since it took his Bangla Desh benefit concert to finally make people aware of the appalling poverty of underdeveloped nations.”

3. Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)

“It starts off with the familiar “Give Me Love (Give Me Peace on Earth),” which technically speaking might not be the album’s best track, but which is a very soothing song, a heartfelt prayer and plea for more love, understanding, and peace in the world.”

2. Don’t Let Me Wait Too Long

 “Don’t Let Me Wait Too Long” is an upbeat love song, which almost anyone could relate to. Who has never grown impatient or heartsick while waiting for someone one loves unrequitedly to come to one and start feeling the same way?”

1. Sue Me, Sue You Blues

“Sue Me, Sue You Blues” is a fun rocker making somewhat humorous light of a rather intense situation, all of the legal battles the ex-Beatles were going through at the time. Sometimes you have to laugh at yourself in the midst of bad times or you’ll go insane.”
