My favourite George songs by the Beatles at this very moment are:

  1. Run Of The Mill It's All Too Much
  2. Salad of Sir Frankie Crisp You Like Me Too Much
  3. This Guitar Can't Keep from Crying Not Guilty (Anthology version)

Of course there are other great ones like WMGGW and Something and Don't Bother Me and Think For Yourself and For You Blue and I'm Happy Just To Dance With You and Old Brown Shoe and I Want To Tell You and Love You To and I Need You ...

I made a Spotify playlist for him of my favorites:

I think I may have just discovered one of my new favorite Harrisongs actually, though my pick may surprise you.a-hard-days-night-john-7It's actually I Don't Care Anymore.  Ya know, the extremely obscure b-side from the Dark Horse sessions?  I'm not exactly sure why I love it so much, and it'll probably never top my all-time favorites (Isn't It A Pity , Hear Me Lord , Here Comes The Sun , The Light That Has Lighted The World, All Things Must Pass ), but that particular song has just really grown on me lately.  I think the reason why is... well, just how much George doesn't care.  I mean he literally says "come on everybody, we've got a b-side to make, so let's just get right to it" at the beginning of the song.  Also, Dark Horse is an album about change and loss, and I always listen to I Don't Care Anymore right after the album's done, and it's pretty effective.

I actually quite enjoy that song too. It could be better produced but then again, that would defeat the object of a song where George doesn't care anymore!a-hard-days-night-john-6

@pepperland 

Actually, I read somewhere that he overdubbed the Jew's harp (or jaw harp, whatever you wanna call it) part later, so I think he's saying "more juice in the 'phones".  'Juice' as in electricity, not fruit. I could be wrong of course, but that's what it sounds like to me.

Anyway, I've been listening to the unreleased track Window Window quite a lot lately.  Very Dylan!ahdn_george_08

Your theory makes much more sense but I can definitely make out the word 'harp', so who knows? Maybe he said it in anticipation of overdubbing the Jew's harp?a-hard-days-night-paul-7

@pepperland 

That may be so.  Maybe it's one of those studio mysteries that we'll never know for sure.  Like how nobody knows for sure how John Bonham did the percussion in Ramble On.

.....I should stop before I name every single Harrisong that I've ever heard in my life. ahdn_george_08  

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 That

My top five ten fifteen twenty.... I dunno... currently consists of 'Long, Long, Long ,' 'Something ', 'Here Comes The Sun ', 'I'd Have You Anytime ', 'What Is Life ', 'Run Of The Mill ', 'All Things Must Pass ', 'Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)', 'Miss O'Dell', 'Beautiful Girl', 'Blow Away', 'Your Love Is Forever', 'That's The Way It Goes', 'This Is Love', 'Cheer Down', 'Any Road', and last but not least, 'Marwa Blues'. 

Oh dear... ahdn_george_01 

I guess my top five would be 'Here Comes The Sun ', 'What Is Life ', 'All Things Must Pass ', 'Blow Away', 'This Is Love', and 'Marwa Blues'. 

Damn! That's six! paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

I'd have to say Within You Without You is my favourite. (I have an unhealthy obsession with sitars) But I also love While My Guitar Gently Weeps , Long Long Long, Don't Bother Me , I Me Mine , Wah Wah , Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth), My Sweet Lord , oh I think I love all of them. Never mind. ahdn_george_08

I do love Long, Long, Long . Disappointing that it never seems to get much recognition. It's easily one of my favourites on the White Album

Agreed. It is stunning. The drums are like a sequel to A Day In The Life and the production is perfect.

Dark Sweet Lady and Your Love Is Forever capture the essence of George in my opinion. Such a sweet and gentle somgwriter. He could depict love like no other

This is easy, While My Guitar Gently Weeps is hands down my favorite Harrisong (and is probably my favorite Beatles song as well). Other ones that i really like include Something , Here Comes The Sun , and Think For Yourself . My least favorite one is probably You Like Me Too Much .

I would say The Inner Light is my favourite George song from his Beatle years (followed by Old Brown Shoe and Taxman ). A while back it was I Want To Tell You , but admittedly, I'm a bit bored with that song now. My favourite George song from his solo years is What Is Life (followed by Blow Away and It Is He (Jai Sri Krishna))

That song will forever remind me of the Harrisonette. a-hard-days-night-ringo-13
