Best Classic Bands celebrates the legend by offering a look back at “The Voice” performing, as he describes it: “George Harrison’s hauntingly beautiful love song.” He’s referring, of course, to “Something.”

The recording was included on Sinatra’s 1980 three-record set Trilogy: Past Present Future.

As Sinatra describes the song: “If you ever wanted to sing a love song for your girl, this is the song. It never says ‘I love you,’ but it says it all. George Harrison wrote it, arranged beautifully by Nelson Riddle.”
