George Harrison's Estate Burns GOP Over Unauthorized Usage Of 'Here Comes The Sun'

When it comes to the RNC's song selection, it's not all right.

When the house band at the Republican National Convention played “Here Comes The Sun” as Ivanka Trump walked on stage, the estate of late Beatle George Harrison was not happy about it:

The estate also sent a followup message saying there was a Harrison song they might approve of the GOP using: 

As the song title alone suggests, “Beware Of Darkness” has a very different message, and includes this verse: 

Watch out now, take care,
Beware of greedy leaders
They’ll take you where you should not go,
While Weeping Atlas Cedars
They just want to grow
Beware of darkness

“Beware Of Darkness” was on Harrison’s landmark 1970 triple album, “All Things Must Pass.”

The clip above shows the song performed at the 1971 “Concert for Bangladesh,” with Harrison and Leon Russell on vocals.
