I’ll be singing George Harrison’s “Beware of Darkness” tonight at our local Star Community Bar, as part of the annual St. George Birthday Bash, along with a bevy of other great local singers, backed by the Metro Atlanta Dark Horse Orchestra. Can I admit I was totally unfamiliar with this song, until I was invited to sing it? I’ve transposed some of George’s highs into lower harmonies, I think it will sound OK without deflating the power and mystery of the original.
From the event posting:

What would Sir George think about mandatory, experimental government injections that have been proven ineffective and even harmful, in order to enjoy music together? //MB
