That's Eric C's guitar on that one, isn't it?

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

For me, it's Beware Of Darkness. Just an incredibly dense song...

 

I feel like the ATMP version was a little overproduced, but it's still a masterpiece.

Great drumming by Ringo, too!

Along with the obvious 'My Sweet Lord', '...Crisp', 'Give me love' etc...one of my George favourites is Hear Me Lord - it is incredibly powerful

 

Yep that's my first post...

Totally agree about Hear Me Lord. If you omit the jams its such a great album closer, very fitting for the album. Have you heard the acetate rough mix that exists, runs for 7:41 and its epic. 

And welcome the the forum Mocker.

Beware Of Darkness (especially the ABKO version, beautiful)

Isn't It A Pity

I Live For You

All Things Must Pass

Let It Roll

Your Love is Forever

Miss O' Dell (This song seriously makes me smile every time I listen to it. The percussion is great, and George's laugh is adorable.)

When We Was Fab

Marwa Blues

Cheers meanmistermustard - I've been addicted to this website for months so I thought I may as well join! I haven't heard that rough mix, I didn't know it existed! I'll be sure to check it out.

The Hear Me Lord acetate isnt on youtube as i would have posted it and i cant remember exactly were i found it but BeatlesSource has a lot of stuff from the All Things Must Pass sessions and the first set has Hear Me Lord so that might be it (just right click on the song and 'save as' - who knew that a ' followed immediately by ) gave you &#39a-hard-days-night-george-10.

Right now my favorite 2 songs by George are Beware Of Darkness (specifically the acoustic 'Beware of ABKCO' version) and Give Me Love (Give Me Peace on Earth).  Both give me chills when I listen.  I f'ing LOVE George Harrison!

Haven't really checked out a lot of his solo work, but I love All Things Must Pass. The Spector production really works on that song. I love What Is Life? too, it makes me feel good for some reason. And When we was fab is of course a great song.

With the Beatles: Well, since Something is one of my favourite songs anyway, I have to include it, obviously. And I like almost all of his Beatlessongs, but 2 other favourites are While My Guitar Gently Weeps and Here Comes The Sun.

I'm not too crazy about the All Things Must Pass album. After a few songs that ''wall of sound'' thing gets kinda annoying. For some songs it works, and it's probably better if I listen to those songs individually. I can't say a lot of it has stuck.

"All Things Must Pass". About a week ago I listened to it 5 times in a row and at the 5th time I still had goosebumps. I just love that song.

My favourite song is 'Stairway to Heaven' by Motley Crue on their 1876 album 'Yellow Submarine'.

I agree with everyone on "Got My Mind Set on You" and "Devil and the Deep Blue Sea" -- fantastic covers.

"Apple Scruffs" -- love that harmonica!

"Blow Away" -- happy!

"Awaiting On You All," "Living in the Material World," "Wah-Wah," "What Is Life" -- these four live in the same box in my mind.

"Your Love Is Forever" -- pretty pretty pretty guitar.

"Give Me Love (Give Me Peace on Earth)"

"Dark Horse" -- elsewhere I've seen lots of criticism of the vocal on this one, but I love its roughness; suits the song.

"All Things Must Pass" and "My Sweet Lord" -- natch.

And finally, in a tie for the top slot, two songs I haven't seen mentioned much on the thread: "Any Road" and "Be Here Now." 

:)

I'm not sure I could ever nominate any one song as my favourite (way too hard)  but this one would be up there. I sing along loudly every time (not pretty!) and it never fails to make me feel good.  George had a knack for songs that make your spirit soar.

Although not solo, I particularly love the version of WMGGW from 'Love' - sends shivers up the spine and George Martin's orchestration augments it beautifully.

WIL definitely makes my top 10 or 15 list of favourite songs, too. Really, it's just a simple love song but it seems so much more than that.

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.

   I can't list them in my favourite order but I can tell you what are the most played George songs on my phone (granted I don't have all of his albums on it but anyways)

My Sweet Lord

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

Any Road

Wah-Wah

Cloud 9

Awaiting On You All

Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp

Don't Let Me Wait Too Long

Got My Mind Set On You

Dear One

 

I have no clue how GMMSOT is on my top 10 played, I never really listen to it...

I'd definitely add Wake Up My Love, Beautiful Girl and This Guitar (Can't Keep From Crying) to the list
