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.
"Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans."
"When I cannot sing my heart, I can only speak my mind."
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).
"I told you everything I could about me, Told you everything I could" ('Before Believing' - Emmylou Harris)
"Don't make your love suffer insecurities; Trade the baggage of "self" to set another one free" ('Paper Skin' - Kendall Payne)
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.
"You can manicure a cat but can you caticure a man?"

I'd have you anytime.
I was shocked to discover it was written by Dylan and Harrison.
Here comes the sun….. Scoobie-doobie……
Something in the way she moves…..attracts me like a cauliflower…
Bop. Bop, cat bop. Go, Johnny, Go.
Beware of Darkness…
"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..
Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see.
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.
SHUT UP - Paulie's talkin'
my top five are
5. all those years ago; wonderful tribute to john
4. give me love give me peace on earth; really underrated
3. isn't a pity; about the breakup of the beatles
2. my sweet lord; masterpiece george werent ashamed of showing his religious beliefs
1. Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll); brilliant never get tried of hearing it.
george was so underrated as a solo artist and i dont understand why?
peace and love folks
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
Once there was a way to get back homewards. Once there was a way to get back home; sleep pretty darling do not cry. And I will sing a lullaby
I really love 'the light that has lighted the world' too.
Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.
(Passover - I. Curtis)
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.
“I was special. I always have been. Why didn't anyone notice me?"
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.
