Attracts me like no other lover. It didn't go on the 'White Album' because we'd already finished all the tracks." [158], By 1972, over 150 artists had recorded "Something". The next official release of the song was on April 2nd, 1973, on the second of two double-compilation albums released on that day, namely “The Beatles / 1967-1970” (aka, the “Blue Album”). Totally disregarding the thirteen takes of the song they attempted two weeks prior, the takes of this re-make of “Something” began at 'take one' again, a total of 36 takes being recorded this time around on the studio's eight-track machine. And this certainly was the case with "Something." James Taylor was one of the first artists to be signed to The Beatles label Apple Records. On October 21st, 1977, Capitol released yet another double-compilation album entitled “Love Songs,” which featured the lighter ballads the band had released during their career. During a good portion of The Beatles career, it would be easy to recognize the George Harrison composition or two on a Beatles album. The song was also in the set list for George's 1974 North American Tour, which stretched from November 2nd (Vancouver, British Colombia) to December 20th (Madison Square Garden, New York City). “It was beautiful,” Ringo exclaimed. However, as a means of promoting the single, a film clip was made by Apple Films, produced by longtime roadie and associate Neil Aspinall, to be shown on television. Another slight cymbal swell can be quietly detected that crescendos on the downbeat of the ninth measure. As recorded by the Beatles, the track features a guitar solo that several music critics identify among Harrison's finest playing. Both his and Joe Cocker's version will suffice nicely until Ray Charles gets around to it. "The Best Of George Harrison," which was released on November 8th, 1976, contained seven Harrison-penned Beatles songs on side one and six solo compositions on side two. In both measures four and eight, Ringo plays accents along with the rest of the instrumentation which descends down the scale per George's vocal instruction in his demo, measure four in the key of A major and measure eight going back to the home key of C major. This unique version was titled “Something (with 'Blue Jay Way' transition)" and also features elements of “Hey Bulldog,” “Nowhere Man” and, rumor has it, their 1967 sound experiment “Carnival Of Light." The LP was mildly successful, peaking at #24 on the Billboard album chart, although it is said to have sold over three million copies throughout the years. In promotion of the remastered Beatles catalog, the "09.09.09 Sampler" was distributed to retailers and radio programmers on September 9th, 2009, "Something" being featured therein. The most notable difference in this verse, however, is the final note of the iconic guitar riff in the ninth measure that changes the last chord dramatically to A major instead of the usual C major. The Beatles then began working in earnest completing the songs they recently started to record as well as introducing new compositions. This has become quite the find for collectors. With 'Something' and 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps' – are you kidding me? This has become quite the find for collectors.

A week-and-a-half later, on August 15th, 1969, George Martin had the orchestral score ready for, not only “Something,” but for three other “Abbey Road” songs that an orchestra was required for. “I think George thought my bass-playing was a little bit busy. I'm as guilty in that respect. It first appeared on compact disc on July 30th, 1991 and then as a remastered release on October 24th, 2005. Something in the way she woos me. He continued to do this at the end of various takes thereafter, the tape being stopped a few seconds into this ad lib performance each time.

It was also seen in the U.S. on the show “Music Scene” in the later months of 1969. Paul concurred at the time, saying "this, to my mind, is the best song George has every written." The tapes from the month-long “Get Back / Let It Be” sessions were in a stack waiting for someone to go through and put in a releasable state, something that would be toiled over and then shelved because they were deemed unsuitable for public consumption. Something - The Beatles (George Harrison) Tabbed by: Rhys Gabriel Tuning: Standard (EADGBe) Alright, the other versions don't seem to be quite the way it was meant to be played (half step or full step up). MacDonald highlighted the song's "key-structure of classical grace and panoramic effect", and cited the lyrics to verse two as "its author's finest lines – at once deeper and more elegant than almost anything his colleagues ever wrote". I don't want to leave her now. "He told me in a matter-of-fact way that he had written it for me," stated Pattie in her book "Wonderful Tonight." Something in the way she … George first recorded himself singing and playing guitar simultaneously, his guitar isolated on track one and his vocals on track four of the four-track tape. Two weeks after the album's release, the song was issued on a double A-side single, coupled with "Come Together", making it the first Harrison composition to become a Beatles A-side. Ringo also added additional cymbals and percussion onto track four, thus recording over John's piano performance from the original rhythm track. First off, Paul's rendition of "Something," which partially included him playing a good portion of the song on George's later instrument of choice, the ukulele, was included on his "Driving World" tour, which stretched from April 1st (Oakland, California) to November 18th, 2002 (Osoka, Japan). [19][20] Harrison biographer Simon Leng identifies "harmonic interest ... [in] almost every line" of the song, as the melody follows a series of descending half-steps from the tonic over the verses, a structure that is then mirrored in the new key, through the middle eight. At the time, The Beatles were recruiting artists for their newly formed Apple Records and George had secured a recording contract with old friend Jackie Lomax, formerly from the Liverpool group The Undertakers. The Beatles: Something (Video 1969) cast and crew credits, including actors, actresses, directors, writers and more. Why don't we do that one instead?'

It's very flattering though....It's nice. Still not sure what to do with the song, he sent a copy of a demo version to Joe Cocker for consideration to be included on his second album, George being impressed by his soulful version of “With A Little Help From My Friends” which had become a British #1 hit in late 1968. [8], In the version issued on the Beatles' 1969 album Abbey Road, which was the first release for the song,[17] "Something" runs at a speed of around 66 beats per minute and is in common time throughout. [21] Author Ian Inglis writes of the confident statements that Harrison makes throughout regarding his feelings for Boyd. Whether George heard his demo of "Something In The Way She Moves" or not has not been established. “George was blossoming as a songwriter. Other artists who have covered it include Elvis Presley, Ray Charles, Booker T. & the M.G. A remastered version of the CD was released in September of 2011, while a newly mixed version was released on November 6th, 2015. By February 25th, 1969, when George recorded his demo in EMI Studios as mentioned above, all the proper lyrics were in place. All eight tracks of the tape were filled now, which meant that a tape reduction was needed. Therefore, on his 26th birthday, February 25th, 1969, George brought engineer Ken Scott into one of the EMI Studios (time unknown) to record demos for three of his recently written compositions, no doubt as kind of a birthday present to himself. Essential Songs - The 1960s. [52], Harrison's composition began accumulating cover versions almost immediately after the release of Abbey Road, starting with Joe Cocker's recording. His "Freshen Up" tour was next to include "Something," which ran from September 17th, 2018 (Quebeck City, Canada) to July 13th, 2019 (Los Angeles, California). [2] In his autobiography, I, Me Mine, he recalls working on the melody on a piano, at the same time as Paul McCartney recorded overdubs in a neighbouring studio at London's Abbey Road Studios. [1] In Nicholas Schaffner's description, the many interpretations made the song ubiquitous "from the Borscht Belt to the dentist's waiting room". The fellow interviewing us made a comment about 'Something,' and Michael said: 'Oh, you wrote that? Author Joshua Green attests to George explaining to his friends from the Hare Krishna Movement that the song was directed to Krishna himself. [57][127] In 2019, the staff of Entertainment Weekly ranked "Something" at number 5 in their list of the Beatles' best songs. As Paul relates in the "Anthology" book: "I think Frank Sinatra used to introduce 'Something' as his favorite Lennon / McCartney song. [132], Among the song's many cover versions, Welsh singer Shirley Bassey recorded a successful version of "Something". In the meantime, George did gain enough confidence in the song to give it a go with The Beatles as well, which turned out to be the best decision yet. [56][127][128] In 1999, Broadcast Music Incorporated (BMI) named it as the 17th-most performed song of the twentieth century, with 5 million performances. On 5 May, at Olympic Sound Studios, McCartney re-recorded his bass part and Harrison added lead guitar. [104] In addition, according to former Mojo editor Paul Du Noyer, "so enormous were sales of Abbey Road that demand for the single was inevitably dampened. Adrian Thrills, "Ten Years After: George", in Hunt, p. 22. Again, from my side, I was trying to contribute the best I could, but maybe it was his turn to tell me I was too busy. “George's material wasn't really paid all that much attention to,” producer Glyn Johns relates in Rolling Stones' “The Beatles: 100 Greatest Songs” special edition, who was also present in the studio on this day, “to such an extent that he asked me to stay behind...He was terribly nice, as if he was imposing on me.” As far as musical inspiration, George explained at the time: “When I wrote it, I imagined somebody like Ray Charles doing it. George's "Something" was out of left field. The album first appeared on compact disc on October 10th, 1987, and then as a remastered release on September 9th, 2009. George has stated, however, that his favorite cover versions of the song were by Smokey Robinson and James Brown. Ringo plays an alternating hi-hat and tom triplet beat in measures one, two and three, and then five, six and seven. [53][54] Having temporarily left the group in January 1969 partly as a result of McCartney's criticism of his musicianship, Harrison exhibited a greater level of assertiveness regarding his place in the band, particularly while they worked on his compositions "Something" and "Here Comes the Sun". [32] With the proceedings being recorded by director Michael Lindsay-Hogg for the planned documentary film,[33] tapes reveal Harrison discussing his unfinished lyrics for "Something" with Lennon and McCartney, since he had been unable to complete the song's second line, which begins "Attracts me ..."[34] To serve as a temporary filler, Lennon suggested "like a cauliflower", which Harrison then altered to "like a pomegranate". Each Beatle looks like he's found what he was looking for – but they're heading for four separate futures. During the buildup of measures seven and eight, we hear an early lead guitar flourish in measure eight which resulted in George accidentally missing the first two notes of his iconic guitar riff in measure nine. "Something" was the second track on the "Abbey Road" album which created a very impressive transistion from the thumping rocker "Come Together" which started the LP off. [3] Harrison suspended work on the song,[4] believing that with the tune having come to him so easily, it might have been a melody from another song. I couldn't help but notice that Harrison was actually giving Paul direction on how to play the bass, telling him repeatedly that he wanted the part greatly simplified. George even introduced a brand new song to the group entitled “Here Comes The Sun” which they began work on even before they returned their attention to “Something.” I don't want to leave her now. It can easily be presumed that George wandered into one of the open EMI studios sometime in the first two-and-a-half weeks of September, 1968, to start work writing what became “Something.” Producer Chris Thomas's recollection of hearing George play the song on harpsichord on September 19th, as mentioned above, appears to indicate that a good portion of the verse melody was written with some lyrics being in place, although the climactic bridge didn't exist yet. By the late 1970s, it had been covered by over 150 artists, making it the second-most covered Beatles composition after "Yesterday". Guitar, guitar pro, bass, drum tabs and chords with online tab player. "[16] By 1996, Harrison had denied writing "Something" for Boyd. "[84], Time magazine declared "Something" to be the best track on Abbey Road,[85] while John Mendelsohn wrote in Rolling Stone: "George's vocal, containing less adenoids and more grainy Paul tunefulness than ever before, is one of many highlights on his 'Something,' some of the others being more excellent drum work, a dead catchy guitar line, perfectly subdued strings, and an unusually nice melody. The first was Paul's "Back In The US" album, which was recorded somewhere between April 1st and May 18th, 2002 and released on November 11th, 2002. 1. Geoff Emerick continues: “Phil McDonald, however, was there with me for the entire day – working in two studios at once really complicated things, and we needed the extra pair of hands. [49][60] With the resulting reduction mix, much of the coda, along with almost all of Lennon's playing on the main part of the song, was cut from the recording. With the addition of the orchestral arrangement, out went any trace of the rambling instrumental jam from the rhythm track that they apparently intended to end the song with up to this point, the recording staff omitting it from every one of these stereo mixes. Some-thing in the way she moves C7 | F /F - /E | At-tracts me like no other lov-er D D7 G Some-thing in the way she woos me Am Am(maj7) I don't want to leave her now Am7 D9 | F Eb G | You know I be-lieve and how (- … Something in the way she moves Attracts me like no other lover Something in the way she woos me I don't want to leave her now You know I believe and how Somewhere in her smile she knows That I don't need no other lover Something in her style that shows me I don't want to leave her now You know I believe and how You're asking me will my love grow The second album to feature George performing “Something” on stage was “Live In Japan,” which was released on July 13th, 1992. In the film, no two Beatles are seen together."[80]. The first demo recorded on this day was “Old Brown Shoe,” which did get officially recorded by The Beatles in April and ended up as the B-side to “The Ballad Of John And Yoko.” The second demo of the day was the pretty “All Things Must Pass,” which the group did indeed pass on altogether, George recording it himself the following year for his first official solo album. Ringo rides on the cymbal throughout this verse, performing fills in measures two and four, the latter one as an impressive fast roll on the toms. Sometime in 1978, Capitol re-released the "Abbey Road" album as a picture disc. It was played in the key of A major, which was quite a bit lower than the C major home key of the final version. The opening line inspired George Harrison to write the No. “The only hitch came when George Harrison announced that he wanted to redo the guitar solo on 'Something.' It must be something,' because, once I got into writing it, the first change, 'Du, du, du, du, du, du, dah.' 4. It's like the song I've been chasing for the last thirty-five years. With the possible thought of recording new songs to spruce up the yet-to-be-released “Get Back / Let It Be” album, they started working on new material. In any event, the opening lyric to his song “Something In The Way She Moves” was fresh in George's mind when he was writing “Something” and just decided to keep it. The Deluxe set, which was made available in a 2CD set, contains the newly created Giles Martin mix of the entire album and the full February 25th, 1969 demo that George recorded of "Something," while the "Super Deluxe" 3CD + Blu-ray edition and the "Triple Vinyl" edition contains both of these versions as well as the beautiful orchestral score George Martin created for the song. [27], After Harrison rejoined the Beatles in January 1969 for their Get Back film project (later released as Let It Be), "Something" was one of many recent compositions that he offered to the group. “They blessed me with a couple of B-sides in the past,” George stated to David Wigg in October of 1969 on BBC Radio 1's "Scene and Heard" program. All of the work they had done on "Something" on this day was for naught, unfortunately, because none of these takes were deemed worthy enough for overdubs, the session ending at 2:45 am the following morning after stereo mixes of “Old Brown Shoe” were made. Create and get +5 IQ. They blessed me with a couple of B-sides in the past, but this is the first time I've had an A-side. [2][35] In their study of the available tapes, Doug Sulpy and Ray Schweighardt write that the Beatles gave the song two run-throughs that day, which was the only occasion that they attempted it during the Get Back/Let It Be project. On August 1st, 1971, George and his band of celebrities (including Ringo) recorded a live version of “Something” during his groundbreaking “Concert For Bangladesh” at Madison Square Garden in New York City, this being released on the 1971 triple-album of the same name. George appeared to be stuck lyrically for a while after that. "[8], Along with "Here Comes the Sun", "Something" was included on the Beatles' 1973 compilation album 1967–1970,[105] thereby giving Harrison two of the four tracks representing Abbey Road. After George's death, Paul thought to put together a performance of "Something," what he viewed as his best composition, as a tribute to his former bandmate during his tours. George's beautiful ballad was put on the back-burner once again for another two weeks or so. “For 'Something,' George Harrison shuttled back and forth between studio one, where he shared the conductor's podium with George Martin for a time, and studio two, where he oversaw the sound recording, virtually as 'producer,' and where – on the floor of (studio one) – he taped a new and memorable lead guitar solo for the song's middle eighth – actually, barely different from the song's previous best guitar track.” After this elaborate overdub onto 'take 39' of “Something” was complete, McCartney apparently present to overdub some descending piano piano notes onto the same track as George's guitar solo, they accomplished the same for “Here Comes The Sun” and ended the session by 1:15 am the following morning. Like them, we all may have been pleasantly surprised after looking closer at the record label to see the name “George Harrison” listed under the name of this song. This phrase is certainly true when describing George Harrison composing his highly acclaimed song "Something." Paul recorded three versions of his rendition of George's "Something," the first of these live performances being sometime between April 1st, 2002 and May 18th, 2002, this appearing on his albums "Back In The US" and "Back In The World," the second being on November 29th, 2002 at London's Royal Albert Hall which appears on the album "Concert For George," the third being sometime between July 17th and 21st, 2009 at Citi Field in New York City which appears on the album "Good Evening New York City.". The rhythm instruments, namely the guitar and organ, are more in the background to allow George's solo to shine, Paul's bass work slightly competing for attention but low enough in the mix so as not to distract. A different lyrical change to the song has been heard during some of these Japanese shows, namely "You stick around, Jack, it might show" in imitation to Frank Sinatra's rendition of the song. “What could it be, Paul, 'something in the way she moves,' something like that, 'attracts me like...' I couldn't think of what attracted me at all!” George exclaims exasperatingly to his bandmates. "Something" is a song by the English rock band the Beatles from their 1969 album Abbey Road. 2. George Harrison's bitterness about their attitude toward his songs, unfortunately, got the best of him, as he said in a conversation that was recorded by Anthony Fawcett during an Apple meeting in Autumn of 1969, “Maybe now I just don't care whether you're going to like them or not. Although George didn't have an extensive stage career after The Beatles, he was proud enough of “Something” to include it in many appearances he did make. While he did admit to writing love songs directed to God (as with "Long, Long, Long" from the "White Album"), referring to his creator as "she" and as a "lover," as in the lyrics to "Something," would be somewhat unusual for him. Then came Paul's performance at the "Concert For George," which occured on November 29th, 2002 at London's Royal Albert Hall. [180] To the disappointment of many fans, he chose to alter some of the song's lyrics (such as changing the first line to "If there's something in the way, remove it"). [77][78], The promotional film for "Something" was shot in late October 1969, not long after Lennon privately announced that he was leaving the band. Billy Preston comes to the fore in the seventh and eighth measures with eighth-note chord stabs and then playing the guitar riff with George in the ninth measure, this transcending into the second verse that follows. I don't know” and so on. Something Lyrics: There's something in the way she moves / That attracts me like no other lover / Something in the way she moves me / I don't want to leave her now / You know I believe in how [77] The combined sides reached number 4 in Britain. [170][171] McCartney continued to perform "Something", adopting the Concert for George mix of ukulele and rock backing. These demos were somewhat elaborate recordings using the studio's four-track recording equipment, George laying down multiple guitar parts, vocals and even piano at times. "There are lots of songs like that in my head. George Martin couldn't resist releasing all three of Harrison's excellent demos that he recorded on his 26th birthday, “All Things Must Pass” and “Old Brown Shoe” included, on this compilation, feeling the world needed to hear the intricacy and beauty of all three. "It's just unbelievable the way James sings it and the arrangement is really beautiful. Although a hand-clapping overdub is documented to have been recorded, it apparently was deemed inappropriate for the arrangement and was left off or recorded over. Ringo worked hard to play what would fit in perfectly within the arrangement, performing in top form. The stereo mix for “Something” was done on August 19th, 1969 in the control room of EMI Studio Two by George Martin and engineers Geoff Emerick, Phil McDonald and Alan Parsons. [6], The opening lyric was taken from the title of "Something in the Way She Moves", a track by Harrison's fellow Apple Records artist James Taylor. The final eight-track tape, according to Kevin Howlett's "Track By Track" section in the 50th Anniversary "Abbey Road" book, contains George's lead guitar parts and Paul's overdubbed descending piano notes (track one), Ringo's drums and overdubbed percussion (track two), the orchestra (tracks three and four), Paul's bass (track five), George's guitar played through a Leslie speaker (track six), George's double-tracked lead vocals and Paul's harmony vocals (track seven) and Billy Preston's organ (track eight). That's just the way The Beatles were: compliments were few and far between – you could always tell more about the way they were thinking by the expressions on their faces.” While Paul was the only Beatle in attendance for this afternoon session, George arrived for the evening session when his songs were being attended to.
