"Here Comes the Sun" by The Beatles.

OK, more Fabdom: The winter of '68-'69 was a particularly tough one for George - he was arrested for possession of marijuana, had his tonsils out (should have waited 'til '81 and I could have done it for him!) and temporarily left The Beatles. After Epstein's death the four were forced to become more involved in business dealings, which George hated. When spring came he went to Clapton's home in Ewhurst, Surrey, borrowed one of his acoustics, capoed on the 7th fret, sat in the garden and penned his "Pastoral". A song about the relief and hope he felt being away from the past winter's tensions. One of two Harrison compositions on "Abbey Road". The guitar work is reminiscent of "Badge" and "If I Needed Someone". John did not participate as he was recovering from a car accident. One of the first pop songs to feature the Moog Synthesizer.

Yesterday's answer: "Black Dog" by Led Zeppelin. In my book, Zeppelin DEFINES Heavy Metal - that's where the genre was born and ended - no other metal act can touch them!
