Samuel’s Musician Of The Week

April 24th, 2008 at 09:58am

This week’s award goes to George Harrison, and the feature song is one of my favourite George Harrison songs, one which was played by Mike Welsh when he filled in for John Kerr on 2UE on Sunday, “All those years ago”.

As Mike said on Sunday in reference to The Beatles and George Harrison, “you know it’s a good band when even the drummer can have a successful solo career” (paraphrased…or perhaps he said something slightly different and I misheard it).

I’m shouting all about love
While they treated you like a dog
When you were the one who had made it so clear
All those years ago.
Talking all about how to give –
They don’t act with much honesty
But you point the way to the
truth when you say:
All you need is love.

Living with good and bad
I always looked up to you.
Now we’re left cold and sad
By someone the devil’s best friend
Someone who offended all.

We’re living in a bad dream
They’ve forgotten all about mankind.
And you were the one they
backed up to the wall
All those years ago.
You were the one who Imagined it all
All those years ago.

All those years ago.
All those years ago.

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:

They’ve forgotten all about God –
He’s the only reason we exist.
Yet you were the one that
they said was so weird
All those years ago.
You said it all though not many had ears
All those years ago.
You had control of our smiles and our tears
All those years ago.
All those years ago.
All those years ago.
All those years ago.
