  • Sophie from San Jose, CaIt's on the George Harrison album
  • Calum from Edinburgh, ScotlandIs this on an album of George's? I don't think I know this one
  • Niki from Chicago, IlI like this song too. I think George and Patti looked really cute together but it's not about looks. Im hapy he went with Olivia because they had a son together!!!! And he looks just like George!!
  • Sadie from Pendleton, OrSUCH a beautiful song! I'm happy for George that he found Olivia. I think she was a lot better for him than Patti Boyd. And I just think is one of my favourite songs by him...though it is hard to pick.
