It's almost too long ago to remember such details, but I do remember not being too fussed about a number of early to mid-period George songs, from Don't Bother Me, I'm Happy Just To Dance With You to You Like Me Too Much all the way to Love You To and I Want To Tell You. I have a better appreciation of the ideas in those songs now, they're not always the greatest songs structurally, but I've grown to really like his harmonic ideas, particularly his love of semi-tone progressions. His songwriting grew up in public.

(About the above comment: The songs on YSS are good; it's the fact that they've been torn off their proper albums and shoved together in no particular order that I hate.)
Believe it or not, when I first heard Here, There And Everywhere, it was a Paul live version, and I wasn't that impressed... until I heard the proper album version. *MIND BLOWN*
Now, of course, I think it's world peace, bliss, love, and generally positive vibes all wrapped up into a tidy package of two minutes and twenty seconds.

Maxwell's Hammer I actually love this song now; I find the lyrics deliciously macabre (and funny), and the music - while sounding deceptively nursery-rhyme-ish ("granny music"?) - is, I think, actually very complex. It has the light touch and dark, brooding heart of the Grimms' fairy tales, in my opinion.

At one point I couldn't stand I Saw Her Standing There but it's grown on me.

I used to hate Happiness Is A Warm Gun. I've re-added it to my playlist recently, and now I love it.

Paperback Writer did nothing for me at first since I consider its' B-Side to be far superior as a show-stopping single (besides the whole storyline sounds drab).
I've now warmed up to it over the past few days.

Long, Long, Long. It took
a long long long some time to grow on me. I think it had something to do with George's vocal being so soft that sometimes I couldn't even hear him, now I always turn up the volume whenever it comes (loud and with good headphones the song is thrilling).
