What Is Life" is a song by the English musician George Harrison, released on his 1970 triple album All Things Must Pass. In many countries, it was issued as the second single from the album, in February 1971, becoming a top-ten hit in the United States, Canada and elsewhere, and topping singles charts in Australia and Switzerland. In the United Kingdom, "What Is Life" appeared as the B-side to "My Sweet Lord", which was the best-selling single there of 1971.

Tell me, what is my life without your love? Tell me, who am I without you by my side? What I know, I can do If I give my love now to everyone like you But if it's not love that you need Then I'll try my best to make everything succeed
Harrison released a new version, "My Sweet Lord 2000," when he reissued All Things Must Pass. Producer Phil Spector thought "My Sweet Lord" was the commercial hit of the album, and everyone else resisted him on that. According to Phil, George and others worried about how the public might react to the religious overtones and the Hare Krishna influence. But I believe George's effect and gracious life style will be noticed, praised, and honored increasingly through the test of time. Allie from Pine Knob, MiEverybody refers Harrison as the forgotten beatle, but on the contrary he and lennon i think were the two who had the best solo careers and i think that harrison had more hits then lennon this song has quite a deep meaning.
