“When We Was Fab,” written by Beatle George Harrison and ELO’s Jeff Lynne, is about when the Beatles were nicknamed the Fab Four. The song appears on Harrison’s 1987 album, Cloud Nine, and was later released as the second single from that album in January 1988. It peaked at #25 in the UK Singles Chart and #23 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 singles chart in the US. It marks Harrison’s last Top-40 hit in America. Ringo appears in this really fab video courtesy of Sun Country Wine Coolers. We found this video on the just-launched site Rock Eggs. Worth a visit.

Martin Scorsese’s three-and-a-half-hour two-parter documentary, George Harrison: Living in the Material World, airing tonight and tomorrow on HBO looks to be a must-watcher. We’re especially fond of this bit of info we read recently in the LA Times concerning the first song the youngest Beatle ever wrote, “Don’t Bother Me” (on the band’s 1963 album With the Beatles). His widow Olivia says that George didn’t think it was particularly terrific, that he wrote it merely as an exercise. “If John and Paul could write a song, then anyone can,” he’d said.
