I've got to say I love all the songs in the All Things Must Pass album now, even with Phil's arrangement. I've also heard George's version for Got My Mind Set on You, I barely even recognised his voice.

"And in the End the Love you take is equal to the Love you make"
"When I was a robber *Piano Chord* in Boston Place"
"Let's hope this turns out pretty darn good huh"
"Pete may be the best, but Ringo is the star"
Paul:"Don't be nervous John"
John:"I 'm not"

"All Things Must Pass". About a week ago I listened to it 5 times in a row and at the 5th time I still had goosebumps. I just love that song.

I've got quite a sad fact about myself about ATMP (song) I can't listen to it without crying…. Same as Paul's song Little Willow :(

^^ I'm the same. I bought both songs on iTunes because of how simply beautiful they are, and I really wish I hadn't now as every time I put my iPod on shuffle and they come on, I just brake down. But 'LW', though, it's not really because of Maureen. I just think of loads of sad situations that that song can apply to, even though I try not to.

Same with LW. When I heard it the first time I just thought ''Oh my god'' and started crying a bit.

GMMSOY is one of the few covers I actually prefer over the original. Love the video too. Fun fact: Weird Al Yankovic made a parody of the called ''This song is just 6 words long'' or something along those lines.

ATMP is a profoundly beautiful song.  Isn't It A Pity also reduces me to tears every time.  I especially love the Concert For George cover of that.  Another song that is a real favourite of mine is Horse To Water, particularly for the lyrics – they say so much about human nature and our often misplaced priorities!

For me Blow Away does it every time. I was 17 went it was released and it thrilled me to hear a George hit during "my time" and not from the past. To me it's a happy cousin to Here Comes The Sun. I didn't see it's video til years later and found that it unfortunately may not help Blow Away's stature as one of George's best (it's kind of dated IMO)…

Just bought the CD box – can't wait to listen to it again; I bought the album(s) the day of release but (yes, I know I keep repeating myself) sold them all ages ago and just replacing now.  It was one of my favourite albums all those years ago …

Oh, I also like the title track off Dark Horse more than I should.

Dark Horse is a great George song, no shame in liking that too much. The album pretty much sucks tho.

Of course the George classics are indisputably great ("I Need You", "Savoy Truffle", "Here Comes The Sun", "Something", etc.).

But there's something I like about "Sunshine Life for Me: Sail Away Raymond" (a song written by George for the first Ringo solo album, sung by Ringo) that tickles me the best.
