Thanksgiving Break with George Harrison

The Simpsons at the Thanksgiving Table
My favorite Beatle? George Harrison. George's 1973 "Give Me Love (Give Me Peace on Earth) represents the best of everything that was George: a warm acoustic undercurrent, melodic lead guitar licks that slide around with joy, and a steady piano topped off with George's earnest, simple, and spiritual vocals. This song, paired with Guided By Voices "Hold On Hope" (here, the 90s alt group offers sharp acoustic guitars, piano, and organic lyrical takes on the concept of hope) offer two positive jams for Thanksgiving. "Hold on Hope" has also been beautifully covered by Glenn Campbell.

Anyways, thanks for reading! Enjoy your Thanksgiving.
