Harrison wrote “My Sweet Lord” which was released in November 1970.

Later in the 1970s, “My Sweet Lord” was at the centre of a heavily publicised copyright infringement suit, due to its similarity to the Ronnie Mack song “He’s So Fine”, a 1963 hit for the New York girl group the Chiffons.

In 1976, Harrison was found to have subconsciously plagiarised the earlier tune, a verdict that had repercussions throughout the music industry. He claimed to have used the out-of-copyright “Oh Happy Day”, a Christian hymn, as his inspiration for the song’s melody. source

  1. AOC, Good one on George Harrison’s “My Sweet Lord”! Unfortunately, the YouTube once klicked says “not available in certain countries.” Thanks for the two “Likes” on my “9th PastaPost” & “More Vietnam, No. 4.” –That’s a good one on Vietnam! Thanks again! Phil from

  2. I remember the first time I heard “My Sweet Lord.” I immediately began singing “He’s So Fine” along with it, and wondered how long it would take for a lawsuit to ensue. But I never doubted that it was an unconscious “borrow” on George’s part.

  4. Fantastic song, a real classic! A group of us at school used to listen to the Beatles stuff, as well as Paul McCartney, George Harrison and John Lennon’s music (in the 90’s) when everybody else was listening to Oasis and the Spice Girls.

    I prefer the music of the 60’s and 70’s, such an abundance of great songs! Thanks for sharing 🙂
