    Link: The Beatles` `The Inner Light` - Live - Nice performance of the Harrison classic by Anoushka Shankar (Ravi`s daughter) and Jeff Lynne.

    This song was the b-side to the "Lady Madonna" single released in `68. I bought that single, and I used to listen to this song WAY more than "Lady Madonna."

    While I appreciate the talent involved in Indian music, I just never really got into it. I played the living crap out of my Beatles records, but I always used to skip George`s Indian stuff. Not because it`s bad, just because it`s not my cup of tea.

    Even as a kid, I was very intrigued by "Within You, Without You" from Sgt. Pepper`s. Aside from the exotic sounds of the Indian instruments, as a young musician I was struck by the phraseology of the song. The melodic lines were longer than what we are used to. A line like "When you`ve seen beyond yourself then you may find/Peace of mind is waiting there" sounds to Western ears like it should end at "mind," but it extends beyond and gives the melody an added depth. As a kid I enjoyed following that melody and the way it weaved about. I still enjoy doing that whenever I listen to it.

    I guess my appreciation for "Within You Without You" caused me to immediately like "The Inner Light."
