Here Comes The Sun
Of course, this is a rather obvious choice. But I can’t think of any other song out there that instantly puts a smile on my face whenever I hear it. George wrote this song one afternoon while hanging out in Eric Clapton’s garden, and the more I listen to it, the more I think that it might actually be the most perfect song across the entire universe. It’s so perfect in so many ways that I can’t even describe, and I never get tired of it!
Good Day Sunshine
Perhaps this is one of Paul’s “cheesier” songs, but I love it anyway. It’s so happy and reminds me of beautiful sunny days. I feel like this sometimes gets lost in the shuffle of all the amazing songs on Revolver, but it certainly holds its own as a fantastic song.
I’ll be honest, this song is so mellow and relaxing that it almost puts me to sleep. But I mean that in the nicest, most positive way possible! It’s really a beautiful song worth listening to!
I’ll Follow The Sun
This is probably the wild card on this list, because it’s buried in the too-often-forgotten Beatles For Sale album. While this album is filled with a lot of covers, some great and some sung by Ringo (sorry Ringo…), this is an original song written mostly by Paul and is definitely one of the album’s standouts.
There are a lot more Beatles songs that mention “sun” somewhere in the lyrics, but it would take far too long to list them all here. So I only listed the songs with “sun” in the title. 🙂
I hope you have a wonderful week! Enjoy the weather!
