joe_cocker.jpgSo, I was watching last Sunday’s Desperate Housewives Episode “Don’t Look at Me” (Episode 219) and saw a scene with Karl and Susan right before a Bar Mitzvah. They were listening to a band, trying to decide if the group was good for Edie’s wedding. Then, as Susan was rejecting a resilient Karl, the band started to play the classic song “You Are So Beautiful” (Made popular by Joe Cocker).

That scene inspired me to find (or make) chords to this song. I found two really promising versions by Rimsky, Darryl McMullen, or Joe Cocker and Anonymous. I’ve combined the two versions and added a little of my own flair (and countless fixes) after close listening and relistening to the episode and the original Joe Cocker recording. What’s really weird is that when I was chording this song, I recognized a marked similarity between “Find Your Wings” and “You are So Beautiful.” Does anyone else hear that? It would be interesting if Mark Harris sought inspiration from this song!
