Does anyone else have this problem? This song is so beautiful and evocative and poignant that the only way I can channel the feelings through me is by slitting my wrists. Otherwise, I fear I'd explode with emotion.

By the way, was Mike sick when he recorded this song? His voice sounds really strained, but the struggle is what sells the song. When it's that hard for a guy to sing, it makes you appreciate the frailty of the human condition.

The one thing I can say with confidence about this song is that George Harrison would have absolutely hated it.

Like the track. The lyrics are the sort you love when your grandpa makes them up for you but lazy for a published song.

This song has been floating around YouTube for years.  And, it doesn't seem to conform to the Mike-"style" that is generally attributed to him.  It is more lyrical in nature, "telling a story" and truly a "snapshot" captured of a more spiritual experience that became a commonality for many of that era's musicians, looking "beyond and outside of themselves" but which, according to an interview of Olivia Harrison, after George died, left a lifelong change in lifestyle, which, George carried to his death.  She reported that George meditated more, as he was in Hospice, and that his exit from life, was more accepted as peaceful.  

This whole Eastern mysticism was perceived as a whole new way of looking at life, throughout the Western world, as a means of looking inward, and in a detached (from material goods) manner, brought to the masses via the translation in the Beatles' music and to a certain, perhaps lesser extent, the Beach Boys, and other high profile actors, etc. gave the Eastern philosophy perspective a "voice" with their music, and the use of the sitar.  

This song isn't "news" per se because it has been around for about 10 years, but has a certain "official dedication" in a timely fashion, to George Harrison, whose absence is no less felt, alongside John Lennon, and the departed Beach Boys, Dennis and Carl.  And, in a certain sense, John Lennon's death was as incongruous as Dennis' drowning.  And Carl's death seems analogous to George's; lung to brain cancer.  

I guess Mike had a story inside himself to tell that isn't an easy one to put into words, that took shape in that song.  But it is, I find a "snapshot," of an era and influences that won't be duplicated, and oddly the TM thing is being carried forward, as a vehicle to make schools less violent in the States.  Especially schools, where there are metal detectors at the door, a sign of kids coming from homes where guns and violence are just part of their lives.  Mike got that award, in part, as a result of the social conscience that the music world acquired from Eastern influences, grounded in a difference in perspective from Western thinking.  And the encouragement of tolerance.

Mike writes a song which doesn't have nor nostalgic fun in the sun lyrics neither references to old BB hits.

I like the vocal melody. It's one of Mike's better vocal melodies in awhile. The music is pretty ok.

But rhyming "Hare Krishna" with "Gonna miss ya" is NOT cool. It's cringeworthy. And hold back the repeated washes of sitar. Not that I don't like sitar in general, but the manner in which it's used on this tune is just. so. cheesy.

It's very MOR, but if Al can get a record deal Mike can. He has the name.
