This Song Lyrics - George Harrison
Review The Song (8)
This song has nothing tricky about it
This song ain't black or white and as far as I know
Don't infringe on anyone's copyright, so . . .
This song we'll let be
This song is in E
This song is for you and . . .
This tune has nothing Bright about it
This tune ain't bad or good and come ever what may
My expert tells me it's okay
As this song came to me
This song could be you could be . . .
This riff ain't trying to win gold medals
This riff ain't hip or square
Well done or rare
May end up one more weight to bear
But this song could well be
A reason to see - that
Without you there's no point to . . . this song

brilliant | Reviewer: Charles | 10/16/12
Such a brlliant retort to those who tried to abscond money and notoriety from SOMETHING George so masterfully developed & created! I just thought of "This Song" and realized that those from Bright Music (great stanza) won a legal battle but the war was won by George's response! We miss you George! Charles
Not so ignorant... | Reviewer: Geoff | 5/5/11
"There are only 8 notes in the musical scale" is not so ignorant of a statement...
We have a 12 not chromatic scale, but pop music largely uses the 7 (8 if you include the tonic an octave up) note major scale and the modes therein. The "blues scale" and PENTAtonic scales have even fewer notes (guess how many). So it's not a factually wrong statement nor is his sentiment invalid. There's bound to be some overlap in pop music... where you draw the plagerism line is up to you though I reckon.
That song, This song... | Reviewer: Judith Kristen | 3/8/11
Without a doubt the quiet Beatle was the wittiest and most prolific of the four.
I love most all of what they did during the Fab Four days as well as what followed, but George didn't have a John Lennon or Paul McCartney to fall back on.
In my heart he was never under-rated, but, you know he was placed in the shadows by many... and he never belonged there.
the bass ot this song | Reviewer: daniel | 1/9/08
Sorry George but I dont speak English, however let´s try! The bassline of "this song" is wonderful!!!!!! When I put "this song" in the stereo, cant stop to move my legs and my head!!! You wrote in Here comes the sun: "the smiles returning to their faces "´its the same feeling in "this song"
Still stupid after all these years | Reviewer: Myth Buster | 10/15/07
To "This song is gear" - yes it is. And the lyrics are quite fun and clever. That said, try not to comment on the mechanics of music as it makes you look foolish. There are not "eight notes on the musical scale" - that is a incredibly ignorant statement.
Unintentional or not, "My Sweet Lord" and "He's So Fine" sport the same refrain harmonically and melodically. That's why George lost the suit. Don't be ignorant.
Sense of Humor and... | Reviewer: Brian in CA | 9/15/07
...as his friend Paul McCartney remarked on George's passing, "Someone who didn't suffer fools well".
I miss him too...and Linda Mac and John...what joy they brought to my life.
This Song is gear | Reviewer: doug | 9/8/07
This song titled "This Song" shows George Harrison's utter dismay and contempt for the legal side of the music business. To think that "My Sweet Lord" is an infringement on "He's so Fine" is ludicrous, given the fact that there are only eight notes on the musical scale and that there are only a finite number of combinations in which they can be utilized.
The video for "This Song" illustrates George's feeling of the court system that ruled against him in the action - they went so far as to penalize him even though they acknowledged that the similarity between the two songs was unintentional.
Miss you, George!! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/14/06
Hey, it's a great song. George had a hell of a sense of humor! JMB
