While My Guitar Gently Weeps | George Harrison

Editor’s Comment:  The Beatles covered such a broad array of styles that my “fandom” is highly selective.  This, along with a half dozen others, is epic in my view; one of my top twenty all time songs.  Harrison says he wrote it at his mother’s house while contemplating what he’d learned in India, essentially that whatever happens has a purpose we can learn from (or not).  I just learned one line that didn’t make the final cut would probably have been my favorite:  “the problems you sow are the troubles you’re reaping”.  Yeow!

Favorite Lyric:  “with every mistake we must surely be learning”
