"Something" Beautiful

I would have loved to have been there to see him play this live. On the radio this morning, they were discussing Coachella and Paul McCartney's performance. At the end of his set, he did a small and incredibly moving tribute to George Harrison by trading in his bass for a ukulele which was apparently the instrument that George was most comfortable playing and what he would test out all his songs on. One day he came to Paul and said he had written a song and plays for him "Something" which is one of the most magical moving songs. This is the clip of Paul beginning the song playing the ukulele as a nod to his late friend and then the band joins in eventually and the audience is singing - i can only imagine how cool that would have been to be in the crowd for that one...
