Caleb Grimm takes a break from singing with his friends over at Anthem Lights and covers one of the most popular songs in the world, The Beatles’ “Here Comes The Sun.” The song was written by George Harrison and was released on their 1969 album Abbey Road.
As a cover, Grimm does a good job of emulating the sound of hope that the song describes. He does an acoustic version, so it was very different from the soft pop version that Harrison would perform throughout his career. I think that was a smart choice because it made it stand out with Grimm’s unique voice as he sings along to the background track. No one can doubt Grimm’s talent and while it is obviously nowhere near the level of the Beatles original version, he definitely is up there with the many covers that have been brought throughout the years.
One final note on the history of the song. Fellow Beatles bandmates John Lennon and Paul Cartney were long considered the lyricists in the group, but “Here Comes The Sun” helped solidify Harrison’s reputation as a songwriter as well. In fact, Lennon does not appear on the original 1969 track at all as he was recovering from a car crash.
