And for the first time, the song writing talents of George Harrison appear in Neil’s Top 30 Beatles Songs Countdown. Taken from the Sgt Peppers album, Within You Without You introduces the sitar – an Indian stringed instrument – to the Beatles audience. Once again, we see a totally different genre being presented on this amazing album – this time a more mystical, eastern sound.

Heavily influenced by his time in India, Within You Without You is a great example of George talents that were so often overlooked in the shadows of his band mates.
