Clever Terence won with Here Comes The Sun 🌞. My choice came straight into my head. Sunrise Sunset from Fidler on the Roof sung by Chaim Topol and Norma Crane.
Hello Miss Lexie…..I wish to lodge a protest….last week Sir Terence chose “here Comes the Sun” and I can’t help but feel that he has rather jinxed the weather….so in the hope of using that jinx to our advantage I am choosing a Simon & Garfunkel song this week…..”Hazy shade of winter”…
Seems that Terence is on a roll! Great! " Here Comes The Sun" is often said after the " Storm". Enjoy! Here's to sunny days & warm storms.
Well done Sir T with “Here Comes the Sun”. Taking off on the sun theme, I thought about Donovan's “Sunshine Superman”. Donovan’s manager didn’t want him to play it in front of Paul McCarthy because McCarthy might nick it. Sunshine superman was released at least a year after Sgt Pepper, so it didn’t really matter that Donovan did play.
Well done again Sir T with George Harrison’s Here comes the Sun. This was written at his mate’s house, Hurtwood Edge, when George was playing hooky as he should have been at a meeting with Apple along with the rest of The Beatles! So they would probably be an obvious linky, but we would like to go with another song penned at Hurtwood Edge by the guitar master & owner of the house, Clapton himself (a familiar name, perhaps?). The song was inspired in part by his then unrequited love for Pattie Boyd who was the wife of George Harrison at the time! We gives you . . . Layla, in this unplugged version which is really true to its bluesy roots.
Last week Sir Tel did win wiv George Harrison and Here Comes the Sun. George was married to Patti Boyd who was also the subject of adoration by Eric Clapton who composed Layla for her. We love this version.
Well done @TerenceTerrier for a great link “Here Comes the Sun” by George Harrison. George was in The Beatles so this week we decided to look at other bands that share their name with insects. So our link this week “Stayin Alive” by the Bee Gees.
Well done Terence with Here Comes The Sun from George Harrison. Me linky does be the word (or chant) Om. George Harrison was heavily influenced by the music, culture and spiriturality of India. A very famouns Indian, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, was guru to the Beatles, especially George Harrison. A Yogi is a practitioner of yoga. Yoga is a practice of mind and body working together in harmony to achieve a higher state of mind. To achieve this, practitioners of yoga often hum or chant Om, a sacred symbol of Hindusim. Om Shanti Om is also a chant that can be repeated meaning the invocation of peace over mind and body. What better way to celebrate that than a good old Bollywood number - Om Shanti Om.
