"Something" as written by and Rossi/harrison....
Something in the way she moves
Attracts me like no other lover
Something in the way she woos me
I don't want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

Somewhere in her smile she knows
That I don't need no other lover
Something in her style that shows me
I don't want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

You're asking me will my love grow
I don't know, I don't know
You stick around and it may show
I don't know, I don't know

Something in the way she knows
And all I have to do is think of her
Something in the things she shows me
I don't want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

    General CommentAccording to Frank Sinatra, this is the best love song ever written. I tend to like George's love songs better than the Lennon/McCartney love songs just because they're much deeper, sweeter, and more sincere. The video had Ringo & Maureen, Paul & Linda, John & Yoko, and (of course) George & Patti. Although, George and Patti latter divorced, this song is still one of the most sincere and sweet love songs I've ever heard.

    General CommentMy interpretation:
    Boy meets girl
    She is the most beautiful (inside and out) he's ever come across
    So boy is going to be honest with the girl.
    Boy can't promise forever, b/c he can't predict the future
    But boy would love to promise forever, b/c girl knows everything
    Boy is thinking and compliments him perfectly.
    Girl does for and teaches boy things he's always dreamed of
    Boy cannot pin one thing and physical beauty has little to do
    with his awe of said girl.

    I about fell off my desk chair when someone sent me this song this past November.

    General CommentIt seems to me that Patti Boyd must have been a very special woman. Not only was this song written about her, but so was "Layla" - two of the greatest songs of all time.

    General CommentYes George did write a few great songs, but how can you say hes better than John one of the ALL TIME greatest. George was better than Paul though. Pauls songs are only good for hearing not listening too.
    Anyhow, yes I do remember George sayig this song was not about Patti, but maybe he was bitter when he said that.

    General CommentSomeone commented that this song is based on a James Brown song, which is wrong. It's based on the James Taylor song, "Something In The Way She Moves", which was released in 1968 by Apple Records. George and Paul both worked on James Taylor's album with him, and George used the first line (and title) of James's song as a sort of temporary first line to start writing a song, but ended up keeping it.

    My InterpretationI believe this song was a message for his friend E.Clapton:

    "I don't want to leave her now,
    You know I believe and how."
    and also:
    "Something in her style that shows me.
    I don't want to leave her now,
    You know I believe and how."

    Until this part, GH was speaking about her,
    but now he turns to Clapton
    as he changes "She/her"(Pattie)for "You" (E.Clapton):

    You're asking me: Will my love grow ?
    I don't know, I don't know.
    You stick around, now: it may show!
    ...I don't know, I don't know. (this three really emphasized
    and I would say angry or at least annoyed! Just hear him again.
    It seems to me He`s telling him: "I cannot agree on your taking her with you"
    (in fact some time later Clapton came to GH saying he wanted to take Pattie
    with him and GH said some kind of: "You want her; OK, just take her with you")
    But at that time he still wanted to keep her and wrote his final message to
    his friend E. Clapton:

    "Something in the things she shows me.
    I don't want to leave her now,
    You know I believe and how."

    General CommentEven though Sinatra said it was the best love song, he never gave George the credit. He always refered to it as a Lennon/McCartney song. George had a good reason to write this song too....Pattie was hot!!

    General CommentI really can't say anything more except that George Harrison (in my humble opinion) was by far the best Beatle. If it wasn't for him, they never would've experimented with drugs and they never would've left their bubble gum pop era. Not that there's anything wrong with their earlier work... It's just their later songs had SO much more meaning. That's just my opinion, I could be wrong.

    General CommentThis song is one of the greatest songs written, for obvious reasons, and was covered by over 100 artists!
    Don't think you'll find many other songs that have been recorded that many times! This has got to be George's finest song as a beatle!
