I have always been a fan of The Beatles. But lately I have enjoyed their songs they did in their solo careers. Here is one of my favorite solo songs from George Harrison — “All those Years Ago“. I don’t remember the song when it first came out, I was more of a Paul McCartney fan. But the older I got, the more I liked this song.
“All Those Years Ago” is a song written by George Harrison, released as a single from the album Somewhere in England. The song was a personal tribute to the recently murdered John Lennon. It was released on May 11, 1981 in the United States, where it spent three weeks at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and on May 15, 1981 in the United Kingdom
When I looked up the song on Wikipedia, I found out some interesting things about the song:
Harrison originally wrote the song with different lyrics for Ringo Starr to record.
This song is on my “Quick List” on my iPod of songs that I love to listen to over and over again.
Deep in the darkest night
I send out a prayer to you
Now in the world of light
Where the spirit free of the lies
And all else that we despised.
