George Harrison “Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)”

“Give Me Love (Give Me Peace on Earth)” is one of its author’s most popular songs, among fans and music critics, and features a series of much-praised slide-guitar solos from Harrison. The recording signalled a deliberate departure from his earlier post-Beatles work, in the scaling down of the big sound synonymous with All Things Must Pass and his other co-productions with Phil Spector over 1970–71. Aside from Harrison, the musicians on the track are Nicky Hopkins, Jim Keltner, Klaus Voormann and Gary Wright. In his lyrics, Harrison sings of his desire to be free of karma and the constant cycle of rebirth; he later described the song as “a prayer and personal statement between me, the Lord, and whoever likes it”.[1]

Harrison performed “Give Me Love” at every concert during his rare tours as a solo artist, and a live version was included on his 1992 album Live in Japan. The original studio recording appears on the compilation albums The Best of George Harrison (1976) and Let It Roll: Songs by George Harrison (2009). At the Concert for George tribute to Harrison, in November 2002, Jeff Lynne performed “Give Me Love” with Andy Fairweather-Low and Marc Mann playing the twin slide-guitar parts. Marisa Monte, Dave Davies, Elliott Smith, Ron Sexsmith, Sting, James Taylor, Elton John, and Grace Vanderwaal are among the other artists who have covered the song. Wiki

  1. I always thought George Harrison and Paul McCartney were two of the more talented Beatles. Sure, John Lennon was good, but a little to “out there” for me.

    1. We can hope thru the battles. Italy I know is experiencing corruption too. I think of Mussolini…. Maria Montessori left Italy and went to India because of fascism.🤔🙏

    2. Power goes to the heights of severe crazy and forgetting all historical consequences. How nice it is to have good music to reflect on. Do have an enjoyable weekend. ☕️)))❤️((( ❤️(((☕️Big Hugs for the heart2heart chat!

    1. Happy early 4th of July Patrick Why! AOC is always dong George’s! And the reason is because Harrison is serious music vibing on human behavior but then the same goes for all of the Beatles.. Would I be wrong to say Harrison is the most special of the Beatles? Or maybe the lost of Lennon is a given support to that thought. 😞🤔. Actually we could use some Lennon right now too!

    2. Could really use some Lennon. All The Beatles will work though. George was very special. A poetic soul who put chords and melodies together in a really interesting way. A really unique talent.

    3. Harrison I call the torch carrier. He carried the flame of the Beatles’ into his own and on s new level. Lennon impressed upon Harrison’s solo career creatively even though a heroin addict… and conflicts. AOC IS ALWAYS GOING LENNON even songs posthumously. LENNON music is filled with future perceptions or voyance … his lyrical visions are talking to us this very day.

    1. I love the message, which is so loving and, right-on-time in these present days! The Beatles together and seperately had an amazing humanitarian vision, which they each set to the right music. I love them all!❤️💕❤️

    2. This one I hear singing in my head. I am filled everything/music. LOL! Precognition probably! Thank you for appreciating this share! Hope that your week is going well in spite of going ons! Today is wonderful Wednesday… embrace it! 💕☕️☕️

  2. Very nice

    1. I loved Thomas Paine. For me, he brought the opinionated circulars aka: little newspapers. Life is very sad now but I know what will come next.😞🙏
