There is nothing like a song that can powerfully touch the heart and lift your soul to the heavens. “My Sweet Lord” by George Harrison is one of those songs that do just that. It raises your spirit, improves your mood for the day, and creates a way to calm yourself down after a long, hard day.
We all have bad days. Ones filled with stress from work, drama from coworkers and bosses, and deadlines that seem impossible to meet. Some of us take our aggression and depression out at the local gym or the closest body of water. Others will disappear into the wilds, hiking up a long trail or drowning a worm at the bottom of your best fishing hole.
No matter how you choose to deal with the issues loaded on your shoulders throughout the day, one thing should always come into the spotlight. Music can be one of the best ways to wind down after a day filled with demands and upset people. Not just any song, though. “My Sweet Lord” is an uplifting song that creates an inner calm that cannot be explained.
It has been over 50 years since this song was first introduced to the masses. Even so, it is a harmonious combination of instruments and vocals that stick in our memories, constantly playing in the background of our minds. Even those who do not find solace in the Lord can appreciate the calm feeling that this George Harrison song can produce.
It has been said by many fans that this type of music will be forgotten as the new generations of people come into power and the older generations pass on. The truth is, though, that the only way that this song would be forgotten is if it had never been created in the first place.
It is an unfortunate truth that many of the songs that we have grown up listening to will not be heard by the ears of our grandchildren. We can always play out favorites, such as this one, so our friends and family can listen to how beautiful the music can be. George knocked this one out of the park. It will continue to live on through the souls of those who hear “My Sweet Lord.”
