"don’t YOU want to play a pirate?"

Thanks to the neverending supply of entertainment provided by YouTube, I ended up watching lots of George Harrison tonight, and forgot just how funny some of his solo stuff was. In addition to making some hilarious music videos, he also made appearances on SNL and various Monty Python programs, including this one:

I’m not sure if there is anything better than George Harrison playing a one-legged pirate. But some of the aforementioned hilarious music videos come close:
Crackerbox Palace – This has always been one of my favorites. SO random.
This Song – This song (hah) was written after George was sued for unintentionally copying the Chiffons’ “He’s So Fine”. Whatev…at least a funny song came out of it.
When We Was Fab – Love the Beatles references in this one (also includes Ringo and Jeff Lynne), but it’s borderline creepy. Too many arms!
Got My Mind Set On You – Really unexpected part in the middle = WIN. Also, this song is insanely catchy. Supplementary picture thanks to GraphJam:

Yes there’s no doubt about it, George was by far the coolest Beatle.
