Mine has to be All Things Must Pass . I haven't heard huge amounts of his solo stuff yet though, so there may be some gems that I am still to come across.

That reminds me. A couple weeks ago coming back from Florida, When We Was Fab came on the radio. I instantly starting singing. I love the piano riff in the song. The video always makes me smile (more because Ringo is absolutely adorable in it).
Well we all shine on like the moon, the stars, and the sun.

Deep Blue, Fish On The Sand, Give Me Love, Dark Haired Lady and Cheer Down come to mind. I Live For You is an excellent outtake from ATMP (so many from ATMP ). P2 Vatican Blues (Last Saturday Night) is also a really good song and i really like Rocking Chair In Hawaii from the same album (which ive literally just realised was around during ATMP ).

All Things Must Pass is simply divine. I love it, and it is one of those near-crying experience songs. I really like the version from the Concert for George, too. There is a little bit where Paul and Eric Clapton look at each other and do a little funny guitar thing. It's heartening to see George's friends honor him that way.

Your Love Is Forever. If anyone ever insults his guitar work, show them this song.

"Isn't It A Pity " is monumental -- amazes me that The Beatles turned it down.
One really good, but often overlooked, Harrisong is "So Sad" (from the DARK HORSE album)... great guitar strums in this one.
I've got nothing to say, but it's okay..

Tough One. Here are my choices:
Your Love Is Forever, If That's What It Takes, That's The Way It Goes, I Live For You, Beautiful Girl & Run Of The Mill
The further one travels, the less one knows
I've always been a massive fan of You, easily the best song on Extra Texture. Practically every song on All Things Must Pass . Also Cheer Down, Dark Sweet Lady (which I must credit MeanMisterMustard for introducing me to), Give Me Love (Give Me Peace on Earth), Don't Let Me Wait Too Long and Got My Mind Set On You.

Lettherebbeatles4ever, I don't think Isn't It A Pity is about the band's break up, it was written in 1966 (and played to john in the same year who thought it was junk; george says that during the get back sessions). And Give Me Love was a number 1 hit in the usa, I don't think a number 1 can be underrated, you also wouldn't say let it be is underrated (great song, though). Anyway My Sweet Lord and Let It Roll are also my favourite george solo songs

Continuing the short discussion about Isn't It A Pity
from a few posts ago:
I agree that it's definetly not about the hardships in the band, considering there were none when it was written.
I believe it was about an argument with Pattie (Who is, BTW, my favorite Beatle Wife).
Either way, it's an amazing song; my favorite George song, next to My Sweet Lord , of course.
