10th anniversary tribute to george
I debated what to post on the 10th anniversary of George's death. I thought about discussing his legacy and why I think he's so underappreciated, but I think it's more appropriate to simply let his music and words speak for themselves. Somehow, I think that's what George would have preferred. So in that vein, I've collected here a sample of my favorite acoustic demos and words of wisdom from the songs. I hope you enjoy them and that, as a tribute to George, you take a moment today to stop what you're doing and smell some flowers. Maybe even plant a tree.
Let it Down
Hiding it all behind anything I see, should someone be looking at me.
Beware of Darkness
Beware of sadness. It can hit you, it can hurt you, make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for.
Run of the Mill
Everyone has choice when to or not to raise their voices. It you that decides which way you will turn.
All Things Must Pass
Sunrise doesn't last all morning. Cloudburst doesn't last all day. Seems my love is up and has left you with no warning. It's not always gonna be this grey.
I'd almost forgot, all I got to do is to love you. All I got to be is happy.
Isn't it a Pity
Isn't it a pity, isn't a shame, how we break each other's hearts and cause each other pain.
While my Guitar Gently Weeps
I don't know why nobody told you how to unfold your love. I don't know how someone controlled you. They bought and sold you.
