My two are I Want To Tell You and one that is, for reasons unknown to me, so underrated; Old Brown Shoe . It's got one hell of a groove and some great chord progressions. The bass playing ain't too bad either..!!

^ @Vera Chuckandave, those two are also my top George-penned Beatles songs, along with "It's All Too Much ," though if pushed I would have to say "I Want To Tell You " is my favorite of all.  I just love the feel of it.

For solo stuff, tops would be "Simply Shady" and "Run Of The Mill ."  Oh Wait , "Isn't It A Pity " too.  Wait , "Wah Wah " too.  Wait , "When We Was Fab."  Wait ... uh, nevermind.

I'll just list my top 3 Beatle Harrisongs, because why not:

1. While My Guitar Gently Weeps

2. Here Comes The Sun

3. Something

I haven't sorted out the rankings of all the rest yet, I'll get to it someday.

It's difficult but I came up with a full ranking. I'll list my top 3.

3) If I Needed Someone

2) I Want To Tell You

1) Here Comes The Sun

I'm fascinated by those tracks, and to me are way better than what most people think his best songs are in the first place. For comparison, on my ranking Something ranked #10 and While My Guitar Gently Weeps ranked #13.

Not the literal favourite; its maaaybe my 10th fave Beatles Harrisong on its best day...but I still consider "Don't Bother Me " a totally solid effort, and especially so for a first original. He even went the trouble to think up a great solo, one that adds to the song rather than just lazily echoing the vocal melody.

My favorite Beatle Harrisong would have to be "Something " and my favorite solo Harrisong is definitely "Love Comes to Everyone" 

"....When I cannot sing my heart, I can only speak my mind...." 

"....This ain't no party, this ain't no disco, this ain't no fooling around...."
