George Harrison - "Dream Away" (1982)

Something characteristic about the melodic line and the harmonic progression but in a song style seemingly unique in his oeuvre, with real compositional economy and propulsion. If the greatest thing about this song is not the chorus, it is surely the bridge, which twice plots its way cleverly through seven lines of text. The greatest Beatle moment of this period.
