8) “Nowhere Man” (1965)
Few solos sound like they’ve been all but dipped in the sun’s rays, but here is one of them, courtesy of George Harrison. It’s an autumnal sun, befitting the Rubber Soul album to which “Nowhere Man” belongs, and pure melody that seems to shimmer right out of the speakers. The concluding note manages to blend the timbre of a church bell with the plink of a drop of water landing back into another body of water. With, of course, more dappled light.
