"Complications"



I was pretty proud of this song back in the 1970s. It was one of the more adult pieces I wrote during that time. But years later, I listened to it again and realized it was exactly the same chording as "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" by George Harrison.

Now, I never intentionally ripped him off, and there's no melody line so it isn't plagerism exactly, and I don't know if my subconscious was mimicing his song or creating a whole new one of my own. But, ol' George himself did the same thing with "Isn't it a Pity" on his "All Things Must Past" album, since it has the exact same chord progression as in the long fading chorus of "Hey Jude."

All in all, what the hell....
