Got my mind set on you
Ah, the late 1980s. When even a former Beatle could release one of the most annoying songs ever.
On this date in 1987, George Harrison released his cover of "Got My Mind Set on You," the centerpiece of his comeback album Cloud Nine. As you might recall, it went on to get stuck in the head of each and every breathing American for months. I was a grade-schooler at the time, and remember rocking out to Cloud Nine while dancing like a madman and playing air guitar on an aluminum baseball bat. I was awesome. Too bad my guitar skills haven't improved since. Let's relive those days, eh?
Not hard to believe it shot up to #1 by January 1988. But good grief, that chorus...
George Harrison - Got My Mind Set on You
By the way, bad album cover or the baddest album cover? Nice shades, George.
I think Weird Al had it right:
Weird Al Yankovic - (This Song's Just) Six Words Long
But then again, doesn't he usually?
