Song of the Day: Got My Mind Set On You
Today’s song is Got My Mind Set On You by George Harrison.
Such a interesting deviation for this Beatles member.
Has this fascinating 80’s feel that really hooks you.
It’s actually a cover for a 1963 song by James Ray.
I thoroughly enjoy the original too. The choir backing is such a neat element.
I got my mind set on you.
Love this goofy music video. Really throws you for a loop when the back-flip arrives.
The juxtaposition from the calm guitar playing and jumping into zany animated movement always makes me smile.
It also received a hilarious Weird Al rendition.
The song itself isn’t six words long and makes it genius.
