2002 : 11 "Brainwashed" by George Harrison

Brainwashed in our childhood
Brainwashed by the school
Brainwashed by our teachers
And brainwashed by all their rules
Brainwashed by our leaders
By our kings and queens
Brainwashed in the open and brainwashed behinde the scenes

This song right here is how I am going to remember George Harrison, at least as a solo artist. I thought that this album was so great. It was released posthumously, and that is a little sad. It has the feeling of mortality and finality. So few artists get the chance to make one last statement before they die. I think there is something beautiful in the way George Harrison faced his mortality with this album.
