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.

The following people thank mr. Sun king coming together for this post:

"Isn't It A Pity" is monumental -- amazes me that The Beatles turned it down.

Among my other favourite solo George songs are "What Is Life", "My Sweet Lord", "Beware Of Darkness", "Blow Away", and "Cheer 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..

I didn't give attention to Geogre's solo work that much, but my currently favorites are: "Got My Mind Set On You", "Give Me Love (Give Me Peace)", "All Those Years Ago" and "Isn't It A Pity


Oh I also like the beginning riff of "Wah Wah".

It is weird, it certainly is better than I Me Mine for e.g.

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

I really love 'the light that has lighted the world' too.

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. a-hard-days-night-george-10

Recently been on an Art of Dying kick after it came on shuffle and my significant other said how good it was. I had always been indifferent to it before but keep wanting to listen to it now, fiery guitar work.
