To celebrate autumn, here's Paul Simon singing 'Here Comes the Sun'

It's George Harrison Week at Conan, and on Tuesday — the official first day of autumn — Conan O'Brien had on Paul Simon to sing Harrison's hit "Here Comes the Sun." It isn't too far off how the late former Beatle performed his song, but with just two guitars and two singers (the other guy is Mark Stewart, Simon's musical director), it's different enough to be interesting, and sweet. As Conan points out later in the program, Simon performed the same song with Harrison on Saturday Night Live back in 1976. Both men also reminisce about their encounters with the legendary guitarist.

On Monday night, Conan had on Beck to perform "Wah-Wah," from Harrison's solo record All Things Must Pass. You can watch that here. --Peter Weber
