The Beatles song that John Lennon wrote for George Harrison

In 1964, Harrison was a fair way away from becoming the songwriting behemoth he would later prove to be, writing some of The Beatles most beloved songs like ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’ and ‘Something’. Instead, Harrison chose to provide back-up vocals and harmonies and concentrate on mastering the guitar—but that didn’t mean that the guitarist wasn’t intrigued by the spotlight. It was clearly something Lennon had noticed.
