Inspirations behind "Secret," etc.

YouTube doesn't have a video for the Stereos' "I Really Love You." Apparently it did at one point, but due to a terms of use violation, the vid was removed. However, George recorded a zany and flavorful cover of the song for his 1982 album Gone Troppo. Enjoy:

For the sake of completeness, here's "I'm Wishing," the song from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs which John's mother Julia used to sing to him (which then partly inspired the lyric for "Secret"). And besides, it's Disney.

And, finally, here's a random cover of "Do You Want to Know a Secret." What an inspired gem.
