Default Song Battle # 16: While My Guitar Gently Weeps vs. Here Comes The Sun

These are the other two great Harrisongs ( besides Something) one touches me in a sad way and the other a happy one filled with hope. I like " Here Comes The Sun"

------------------
One of my great memories of John is from when we were having some argument. I was disagreeing and we were calling each other names. We let it settle for a second and then he lowered his glasses and he said: "It's only me." And then he put his glasses back on again. To me, that was John. Those were the moments when I actually saw him without the facade, the armor, which I loved as well, like anyone else. It was a beautiful suit of armor. But it was wonderful when he let the visor down and you'd just see the John Lennon that he was frightened to reveal to the world."

-Paul McCartney (on John Lennon)

While My Guitar Gently Weeps.

I still cannot decide which one I like best, the one on White Album or the Anthology version.

I like While My Guitar Gently Weeps, but for getting me through my GCSEs this year I pick Here Comes the Sun.

<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>Thank you! I was about to point that out!

"Here Comes The Sun", in this one... It's such an anthem to the symbolic return of happiness after a long period of darkness (inner darkness, outside darkness, inner wars and troubles, bad weather, great metaphores), adorned with amazing acoustic guitars arrangements, that synthesiser... Such a great song.

Although each version of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" makes me shiver, I choose "Here Comes The Sun" this time.

That's hard. I'll say "Here Comes the Sun"( I liked seeing him play that song on Sat.Night Live), but I do love "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" esp. the accoustic Anthology version.
