Friday Night Videos - Vol. 2

"Got My Mind Set on You" is a song written by Rudy Clark and originally recorded by the late James Ray in 1962. This cover version, from George Harrison's album Cloud Nine, reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in January 1988. Produced by Harrison and former ELO member Jeff Lynne, the song was his third and last solo US number one, after "My Sweet Lord" in 1970 and "Give Me Love (Give Me Peace on Earth)" in 1973. It was also the last number one single, to date, by any of The Beatles in the USA. [Thanks Wikipedia!!]

I'm dating myself when I say that I remember this video when it first came out, but I don't think I knew it was performed by a Beatle at the time.
