Song of the Week: If I Needed Someone

Despite what I always say about Paul McCartney being my favorite Beatle, I've grown to be a huge fan of George Harrison.  I've recently made it a rule that I listen to the entire Beatles catalog at least once a year and I've discovered a lot of my favorite tunes are Harrison tunes.  This week's song is "If I Needed Someone" off of Rubber Soul and it has the distinction of being the only Harrison composition played by The Beatles during any of their tours.  (Side Note:  The Hollies recorded their own version of this song about the same time as The Beatles).

Bonus:  Eric Clapton played this song during the Concert for George.  I am continually struck by how much Dhani Harrison looks like his father.
