Outside of the descending chord progression, I don't see a lot of similarity to "Handle With Care"......but those four are exactly the same. I don't know if George was ever a prog-rock fan...

See? This is why they only gave George one song per Beatle album. Couldn't trust him.  ;) :o ;D

Plus...I think we can blame Jeff Lynne for that intro.

To be fair, the climb back to the first chord is one note different.....

Ive always thought of this.

I think George got the title based on something that I used to write on packages when I would mail something made of glass to someone.

To be fair to everyone involved, that is a pretty natural chord progression. Even I can do it.  :P

Still....pretty neat how many good songs can be written using the same notes eh?  8)

Yep I do see the similarity but I have to say they made a really good song from a pretty bad one.
