George Harrison: The Songwriters
In addition to composing some of pop’s most spiritual hits, George Harrison introduced Western rockers to Indian music. On top of all that, the iconic Beatle wrote “Something”—one of the great ballads, according to Frank Sinatra. It’s this Harrison, the contemplative one steeped in love, that artists usually look to for inspiration. But let’s not forget how the guy could write seriously nasty rockers as well: “Taxman” is proof of it.
