Perfectly Beautiful. | Reviewer: Cam | 2/14/13
I'm in love with this song! It's Valentine's Day, and at school we had this candy gram thing, I'm a bit of a loner so I didn't get any, but I don't care. I just listen to this song. It's so beautiful. I hope to meet my future husband during this song; a girl can dream, can't she? :) RIP George, I love you! <3

Dame Shirley Bassey does the best version of this song.....ever!!
The very first time I heard her sing 'Somthing' I fell in love with both
the song and her! Check her out on you tube and see what I'm talking
To love someone like that.... | Reviewer: Tea | 3/4/12
The Accoustic version is one of the sweetest most heartfelt songs ever.
Just sit quietly, listen to the lyrics and the style, just think of how wonderful it is to love someone like that, or to BE loved like that, for that matter!
Whether this song is about god or simply about a lover is irrelevant, all songs are down to interpretation, and you should take from it whatever makes you happy. I'm sure that's what George would have wanted.
Unbelievable | Reviewer: Beatlesfan | 2/22/12
This is possibly the most beautiful love song the Beatles ever recorded; it is undeniably one of the greatest love songs ever written. This song is proof that George Harrison deserves a place right alongside Lennon and McCartney when it comes to songwriting. Out of all the Beatles, his songwriting abilities are overlooked the most. Go George!
A gay version would be simple enough. | Reviewer: georgieporgie | 11/8/11
Just change the Her's to Him's and change She to He. Simple. About the God bit that some are arguing, I don't think you're supposed to think about making love to God, or the other way around... isn't that idolatry? But I digress. :)
God? | Reviewer: Tawd
How could anyone possibly think this is a song about god?
"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."
You've got to be pretty ignorant to think its about God and not about love for another. Frank Sinatra said it best:
"the greatest love song ever written"
Beautiful song | Reviewer: KiKi
Ok this is a simple beautiful love song! Stop trying to analyze it! Just enjoy it!
George this is an amazing song you wrote. Paul usually writes the love ballads but George had it all over John and Paul when it came to this song.
good clean comedy | Reviewer: toots
I love it:
"...George was way too mature by the time he wrote this song to believe that a woman going to give him the ultimate fulfillment..."
This has to be a joke, right?
'Cause the older and wiser we get, naturally, the less we can find the enjoyment of the company of others. One must naturally be seeking to make amends with the Big Bearded Guy in The Sky who's going to take us in and give us something to do forever and ever, amen. Ignorance is bliss.

"people will find anything to argue about... who cares if anybody thinks of god with this song, it's only a projection... personally, i think any song can be interpreted in the way you want, if god works for him (or them) ...let it be ;)" (originally posted by Abel)
when we find ourselves in times of trouble
father Abel comes to ... we?

Hey Mel, thanks for bringing that to light, but where was the source of your information? I'd really like to check it out and learn more about the Beatles. If it's Wikipedia or some other similar site just say so and I'll go.
..really? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/20/09
Wow. You're an idiot for thinking that song was about God, or even religious at all. This song is obviously about falling in love with a woman; it's on the surface, as well as
underneath. There's no legitimate proof that would tell me otherwise.
Here's the real info on the "inspiration" of the writing in this song. | Reviewer: Mel
During the 1968 recording sessions for The Beatles (also referred to as the White Album), Harrison began working on a song that eventually became known as "Something". The song's first lyrics ("Something in the way she moves/Attracts me like no other lover") were adapted from an unrelated song by fellow Apple artist James Taylor called "Something In The Way She Moves" and used as filler while the melody was being developed.
Harrison later said that "I had a break while Paul was doing some overdubbing so I went into an empty studio and began to write. That's really all there is to it, except the middle took some time to sort out. It didn't go on the White Album because we'd already finished all the tracks." A demo recording of the song by Harrison from this period appears on the Beatles Anthology 3 collection, released in 1996.
Many believe that Harrison's inspiration for "Something" was his wife at the time, Pattie Boyd. Boyd also claimed that inspiration in her 2007 autobiography, Wonderful Tonight, where she wrote: "He told me, in a matter-of-fact way, that he had written it for me."
However, Harrison has cited other sources of inspiration to the contrary. In a 1996 interview he responded to the question of whether the song was about Pattie: "Well no, I didn't [write it about her]. I just wrote it, and then somebody put together a video. And what they did was they went out and got some footage of me and Pattie, Paul and Linda, Ringo and Maureen, it was at that time, and John and Yoko and they just made up a little video to go with it. So then, everybody presumed I wrote it about Pattie, but actually, when I wrote it, I was thinking of Ray Charles."
The original intention had been for Harrison to offer the song to Jackie Lomax, as had been done with the previous Harrison composition, "Sour Milk Sea." When this fell through, the song was given to Joe Cocker (who had previously covered The Beatles' "With a Little Help from My Friends"); his version came out two months before that of The Beatles. During the Get Back recording sessions for what eventually became Let It Be, Harrison considered using "Something," but eventually decided against it due to his fear that insufficient care would be taken in its recording; his earlier suggestion of "Old Brown Shoe" had not gone down well with the band. It was only during the recording sessions for Abbey Road that The Beatles began seriously working on "Something."
Enjoy kids fighting about his inspiration... it most definitely wasn't about his conversion... hence why he brought out the next following song.
That would have been a cool idea for him to make such a subtle change and have about god instead, but... it's not. Sorry.
It was written about Pattie Boyd, his wife at the time. She's been interviewed and described the moment he came home and shyly informed her that he wrote a song for her.
You can't turn everything into a bible bash!
