The other day I had my iPod on shuffle, and for some odd coincidence five songs by George Harrison came on in a row. Now I do have most of the Beatles albums loaded on there, but it’s hardly the only thing I have, so five Harrison songs coming up in a random shuffle was statistically improbable. It was also a little illuminating, in the sense that I realized that Harrison, in each song, was really irritated and, in many cases, was using the song either to criticize someone or tell someone off.

Harrison is known as the Quiet One, the Spiritual One, the least egotistical one (at least of the three songwriters) — and each case the reputation is probably well-founded. But I don’t think anyone thinks of him as the Irritated One. But at least in half of the songs he did with the Beatles, he was indeed expressing irritation.

And lest this be mistaken for a band preoccupation rather than an individual tendency, it should be noted that the other two songwriters in the group rarely used songs to express irritation. John Lennon usually wrote about how screwed up he was, or at least how he happened to be feeling, or what was going on around him; and Paul McCartney, I’M LOOKING THROUGH YOU aside, was usually pretty upbeat, being upbeat by nature.

By Nan count, Harrison recorded 20 songs with the Beatles. Nine could be considered outside the irritated pattern: I NEED YOU, LOVE YOU TOO, ONLY A NORTHERN SONG, IT’S ALL TOO MUCH, BLUE JAY WAY, SOMETHING, LONG LONG LONG, HERE COMES THE SUN and FOR YOU BLUE. Even a couple of those have a slight edge. “Love You Too,” for example, refers to “people standing around who screw you in the ground.” And part of the power of “Something” is in its brutal honesty, in that the lyric to a seemingly ecstatic coda has Harrison saying he doesn’t know if he’s going to stay in love or not.

This is the key, in a sense. Harrison makes the setting for his brutal honesty so lilting that you often don’t notice that he’s being harsh or complaining or saying something that is downright unpleasant. ALL THINGS MUST PASS, which he wrote while with the Beatles and which formed the title of his first solo album, seems like a philosophical rumination on impermanence — but the context for it, within the song, is that he’s breaking up with a woman and trying to console her. His “love” has left her “with no warning.” I’m sure she appreciated the philosophical advice.

Let’s look at some other titles:

DON’T BOTHER ME — pretty self-explanatory.

IF I NEEDED SOMEONE — Basically he’s gloating over the fact that he’s not interested in someone, telling this person to put her number on his wall and maybe he’ll call her.

THINK FOR YOURSELF — The whole song involves him telling someone off.

TAXMAN — He doesn’t like the taxman.

WITHIN YOU WITHOUT YOU — The song describes sitting around talking with other people about how everybody else is screwed up.

WHILE MY GUITAR GENTLY WEEPS — His guitar is weeping because the people he’s singing to are all screwed up.

PIGGIES — A criticism of cops and others who aren’t hippies. Fairly coarse, in that the harshness of the sentiment is uncharacteristically obvious.

SAVOY TRUFFLE — Even this seeming bauble is talking about how you are what you eat, so if this is what you eat, what are you?

I ME MINE — A criticism of selfishness.

In between there, you get OLD BROWN SHOE, which is a sort of love song and somewhat disguised in its point of view. But what he’s saying is that he is looking for sexual variety, describing the women that have gone before as an “Old Brown Shoe.”

Anyway, this is not a criticism. It’s more like a way into the work, an angle in. Lennon, for all his seeming confidence, was always, in the private recesses of his songwriter’s heart, thinking of himself as a mess. But Harrison not only thought he was OK, but he thought he was OK enough to prescribe for YOU. And, unlike most who do it, he was pretty good at it. This is in contrast to Lennon who, for a brief period in his solo career, started prescribing and wrote the worst songs of his life (SOME TIME IN NEW YORK CITY). What was natural to one wasn’t natural to the other.

THE SEACREST FILES

Ryan Seacrest: What’s the story of your song “FourFiveSeconds” with Rihanna and Paul McCartney?

Kanye: I had the amazin opportunity to work with Paul McCartney and you know, we just went in and vibed out. As you can see, I might be a little bit more angst than Paul. And remember the last time when Paul had somebody really angst working with them, the type of music they made? Hey everyone, America, I’m not comparing myself to John Lennon, I’m just saying I’m angst a bit like John Lennon. And … tension creates a new magic. The pressure creates the diamond from the coal. And he came in with the best vibes ever, and I said, “Four, five, seconds from wildin’,” and he said, “It’s great everyone!” and we just had that. And then Rihanna heard it — I’m executive producing Rihanna’s album — and she heard it, and literally she was not going to be satisfied until she had this record. Excuse me if I compare Rihanna to Annie Lennox, but I feel like she has this type of energy in her vocals.

Grushchenka explained to the pinhed about how girls have fantasies that are not supposed to come true, and if anyone tries to make them come true, she'll blast him with an elephant gun (that might be one of her fantasies affraid ).

Sorry, Beatles, Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975) by The Eagles outsold all of your albums.   Crying or Very sad

Maybe Miss Manners should remind Mr. Kuntzman that's it's OK to insult someone at his funeral--if he's named Lavrentii Beria or John Wayne Gacey--but otherwise, not.

It is partly an East / West thing, like Biggie and Tupacs.

as for taking themselves too seriously, that would apply much more to Henley than Frey.

I didn't love them, but to me hating seems like over-reacting.

I didn't like them much until I discovered New Yorkers hated them. And Pedro says, nowadays Mellow Sounds of the 1970s is edgier than punk rocking.

Felder? I think he was the only one who got kicked out of the band twice.
