in 1963. When Harrison released “My Sweet Lord” in 1970 he was sued by Bright Tunes publishing claiming it was a rip off of He’s So Fine melodically. Harrison, for his part, said that he was using the tune from “Oh Happy Day,” a Christian hymn that was in public domain. The litigation surrounding the allegations of plagiarism dragged on until 1981 when, somewhat ironically, Harrison purchased Bright Tunes and essentially paid himself royalties the rest of his life. Paradoxically no one seemed to say anything about the similarities between “He’s So Fine” and the Goffin/ King song “One Fine Day” which the Chiffons recorded as a follow up to “He’s So Fine.” In 1976 Harrison released the album Thirty Three & 1/3, a reference to both the speed an LP and Harrison’s age at the time. Three singles were released from that album including a parody song that made fun of his lawsuit. 31.  Name the song.
