In late September, Conan O’Brien devoted a week to the music of George Harrison, in honor of some of his music being re-released. I’ve mentioned before that my realization of how much I experienced George’s loss was much more gradual than the shock of John Lennon’s murder.

I’ve become newly interested in the Beatles song Piggies since its inclusion in a musical review at church.
