I’m a huge Lennon fan and quite a big Beatles fan circa the acid trip years. Now if your as old as say my mum you really appreciate the “I Wanna Hold your Hand” years and the entire British Invasion but if you’re a bit younger, well, needless to say you love the years that Paul and John were dropping tabs and creating the most incredible music on the planet as far as I’m concerned.
With much focus on what both Paul and John were creating, I think, the fandom forgot how talented George was. He wrote Here Comes the Sun in ’69 when he was having a crummy year, lots was going on at the time including him being arrested for possession. George was quoted as saying he created the song one day when walking around Eric Clapton’s gardens. Go figure!
The song is one for creating an ear worm simply because we all have those crap days that seem like they are going on forever but there’s always a clarifying moment when the sun comes out and we realize everything we are stressing out about is really not all that bad after all.
Needless to say the short winter seems like it’s over and here comes the sun….with Spring full force ahead Philosophy has a brand new collection to get you geared for the warm, sunny weather ahead and fittingly it’s named Here Comes the Sun. I’d like to think George would be quite chuffed about having a skincare line named after his little ditty.
Warning there are gratuitous photos of JRM’s naked chest after the jump!

P.S. We saw Albert Nobbs last night and it was quite delightful if not sad. Anyone see it? I didn’t even realize JRM was in it and he was in a dress for a second there sexy haha! Gasp! What a pleasant surprise! Aaron Johnson is such a dish, double whammy having them both in the same movie. Can I have me some of that?
