THE BEATLES TOP 60 SOLO SONGS: #22: “CRACKERBOX PALACE”- GEORGE HARRISON

George Harrison - Crackerbox Palace (1977, Vinyl) | Discogs

The Beatles Top 60 Solo Songs: #22 ” Crackerbox Palace”- George Harrison. “Crackerbox Palace” was the second single from George’s -Thirty-Three 1/3 album- his age at the time. While “This Song” made this list of Top 60 Beatles Solo Songs- “Crackerbox Palace” is my favorite track from this fine album. The song was inspired from a comment made by George Greif- who had been the manager of the late comedian Lord Buckley- who Harrison admired- that Harrison resembled Buckley. Greif invited Harrison to visit Buckley’s home- which was called “Crackerbox Palace” – Harrison jotted down that title- and the rest is history. In the instrumental break George sings “It’s twoo, It’s twoo” from a line said by actress Madeline Kahn in the movie Blazing Saddles. “Crackerbox Palace” peaked at #19 in the Billboard Hot 100.

  1. Another single I won while skating…this one and later on I won Life’s Been Good by Joe Walsh. The video really showed his sense of humor.
