This song has always reminded me of Gordon Lightfoot. There's clearly a George feel about it too, but not as pronounced as it is on some of his other productions. (Like Ringo, etc.)


I know where the Gordon Lightfoot thingy came from now - this guy that used to sit at the desk next to me played his stuff all the time, as well as other early '70s lite rock. (The Air That I Breath by the Hollies, etc.) It drove me nuts! He included Day After Day in his set as well. I need to break the association![xx(]

The intro to "every night" always reminded me of a gordon lightfoot type song.

I think I read somewhere that the original guitar intro was done by Pete Ham, and then done again by George Harrison, and in the end it was a mix of both that ended up on the record....or something like that.[;)]

The Beatles sounded like The Beatles

Badfinger sounded like Badfinger

Oasis sounds like Oasis

Gordon Lightfoot sounds like Gordon Lightfoot

....all are great.[:D]
