Harrison, George

Cheer Down
1989 UK Original 12", Housed In Thin Glossy Picture Sleeve. Light Crease Line At Bottom Edge Of Front Cover. "One Of The Lesser-known Latter-day Hits By George Harrison, "Cheer Down" Could Have Been A Contender For The All-star Traveling Wilburys Project. The Harrison/tom Petty-penned Number Had Circulated As A Rough Mix On Recordings And Outtakes From The Same Sessions That Also Yielded "Handle With Care" And A Very Early Reading Of "Wilbury Twist." Indeed, Jeff Lynne's Production And The Solid, Steady Backbeat Recall "Handle With Care" As Well As The Title Track To Harrison's 1987 Cloud Nine Lp. When The Song Initially Appeared, It Was The Lead Track And Focus Single From The Second Installment In The Lethal Weapon Motion Picture Franchise, Subsequently Turning Up On 1989's Lethal Weapon 2 Soundtrack. The Lyrics Contain Hints Of Harrison's Wit And Irony As He Tweaks The Familiar Catch Phrase "Cheer Up," Adding His Unmistakable And Decidedly Arid Charm To The Lines "If Your Hair Should Fall/if Your Shares Should Crash/you'll Get By Without Getting A Rash/there's No Tears To Be Shed/i'm Gonna Love You Instead/i Want You Around/cheer Down." The Cut Resurfaced Throughout Harrison's Final Concert Tour In 1991, As Heard On 1992's Live In Japan, And Was Included On 1989's The Best Of Dark Horse (1976-1989) Compilation. One Interesting Cover Version Can Be Found As A Syrupy Instrumental On 1990's 20 Greatest Movie Hits By The Alshire Hollywood Pops Orchestra -- Although It Is Not Recommended For Fans Of The Harrison Track."
