"This Song" is the fourth track on George Harrison's 1976 album Thirty Three & 1/3. It was written after the week George spent in a New York courtroom, (unsuccessfully) trying to convince a judge that his 1970 song, "My Sweet Lord", did not intentionally infringe the 1963 Chiffons hit, "He's So Fine". According to Harrison, the prosecution got ridiculously in-depth, breaking "My Sweet Lord" down into several melody lines, or "motifs", as they referred to them. Apparently, the prosecution also drew up several charts with large musical notes on it to prove their point. Harrison said in his autobiography, I Me Mine, that after several days, he "started to believe that maybe they did own those notes". After he lost the case, Harrison wrote "This Song", which released his frustration of the infringement case in the form of an uptempo, piano-driven boogie. "This Song" was released as the leadoff single for Thirty Three & 1/3 and reached #25 on the American pop charts. It features Billy Preston on piano and organ, and the Rolling Stones's Ron Wood calling out the now-famous falsetto "Could be 'Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch'", "No, sounds more like 'Rescue Me'!" interjection right before the instrumental break. The song also has a humorous music video (shown on the November 20, 1976 episode of Saturday Night Live), which features George in a courtroom along with a cast of many of his friends dressed up as the jury, bailiff, defense experts, etc. Drummer Jim Keltner appears as the judge.
His last single from Roy Orbison's 1988 album, Mystery Girl. The song reached #9 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on the Adult Contemporary chart, as well as #3 on the UK singles chart, in the spring of 1989, several months after Orbison's death of a heart attack at age 52.

Charles Trenenet was a singer/ songwriter from France in the 1930's through 1960's in which time he wrote prolifically, his songs numbering in the thousands. His influence on French music is unquestionable. This clip is taken from the film la Route Enchante (1938) was a comedy staring Charles Trenet and Julien Carette. The songs theme is love and the joys of being in love, a common theme for songs of its time period.
Also from their 1978 album entitled Jazz. Words and music were by Freddie Mercury. It was recorded in August/September 1978 in Nice, France. Musically, the song is based around Mercury's piano playing, with John Deacon and Roger Taylor providing a bass guitar and drums backing track. On the studio version, Brian May's only guitar playing is in his guitar solo, however on live versions performed on the band's 1978 and 1979 tours, May would also play rhythm guitar throughout the rest of the song to add a rockier feeling to it. The song also provides an example of Queen's trademark style of multitrack harmony vocals for the chorus lines. Several recordings were laid over each other to achieve the final sound.
Great video rendition of this famous Miller tune. Glenn at his best. (make sure to turn up your volume!)
Hit single released in 1978 on the album Jazz. The song was written by Queen guitarist Brian May and was one of the few Queen songs played in an alternative guitar tuning commonly called "drop D tuning". The lyrics express the axiom "Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder", although the song has a humorous and overtly sexual tone for such a serious subject.
