Tune of the day - Sunday March 9th

I look at you all see the love there that’s sleeping 
While my guitar gently weeps 
I look at the floor and I see it needs sweeping 
Still 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. 

I look at the world and I notice it’s turning 
While my guitar gently weeps 
With every mistake we must surely be learning 
Still my guitar gently weeps 

I don’t know how you were diverted 
You were perverted too 
I don’t know how you were inverted 
No one alerted you. 

I look at you all see the love there that’s sleeping 
While my guitar gently weeps 
Look at you all… 
Still my guitar gently weeps.

While My Guitar Gently Weeps - The Beatles

This is arguably George Harrison’s greatest contribution to The Beatles catalogue. With it’s heart-breaking melody and somber lyrics, the version that ended up on The White Album has George’s lifelong friend Eric Clapton playing the lead guitar part.

I don’t claim to know a lot about music outside of hip hop but I do know there’s a reason Eric Clapton named Prince one of the greatest guitarists to have ever lived.

Everything about this video is perfect. I mean, don’t get me wrong, the song itself is nice and the performance is awesome but once Prince comes out, everything goes fucking bananas.
He kills the solo, leans onto a security guard while still playing, makes sweet, sweet love to his guitar including the greatest “O” faces of all time and I’m pretty sure he throws his guitar in the air at the end and it NEVER COMES DOWN.

Fast forward to 3m 20secs in to get right to the Prince bit. You won’t be disappointed.

There should be an album of just prince solos called “Spontaneous Ejaculation.”
