George Harrison’s journey to Hinduism is well documented. His 1970 version of this Billy Preston song was his public declaration of his faith. It is a hymn to the Hindu god Krishna, featuring traditional Hindu prayer phrases. The song features references to the Abrahamic faiths as well, making it somewhat of an anthem for the rampant and chaotic spirituality of that time period. Even with all this religiosity, it didn’t keep the song from being the subject of a copyright dispute.
