‘Give Me Love, Give Me Peace on Earth’ by George Harrison – Classic Hit or Miss

“Give Me Love (Give Me Peace on Earth)” is a song by English musician George Harrison and the opening track of his 1973 album Living in the Material World. It was released as the lead single from the album in May that year and became Harrison’s second US number 1, after “My Sweet Lord”. In doing so, the song demoted Paul McCartney & Wings’ “My Love” from the top of the Billboard Hot 100, marking a rare instance where two former Beatles held the top two chart positions in America. The single also reached the top ten in Britain and Canada, and in other singles charts around the world.“Give Me Love (Give Me Peace on Earth)” is one of Harrison’s most popular songs, among fans and music critics, and features a series of much-praised slide-guitar solos from Harrison. The recording signalled a deliberate departure from his earlier post-Beatles work, in the scaling down of the big sound synonymous with his 1970–71 collaborations with co-producer Phil Spector. Other musicians on the recording include Nicky Hopkins and Jim Keltner. The lyrics’ subject matter is reincarnation, and Harrison described the song as “a prayer and personal statement between me, the Lord, and whoever likes it”
