One thing about George is that he has a magical ability to produce fantastic music, so I’ll make just do five (had to change to ten once I started the list), and I won’t even touch All Things Must Pass . In no particular order. 

Don’t Let Me Wait Too Long

Give Me Love

Miss Odell

Blow Away

Tired Of the Midnight Blue

Love Comes To Everyone

Dark Sweet Lady

Save The World

I Got My Mind Set On You

Any Road

Mmmh… Probably “”Blow Away”, “Soft-Hearted Hanna” and “Shanghai Surprise”. Oh, and “Cloud Nine ”.

My Sweet Lord
The Lord Loves the One (That Loves the Lord)
See Yourself
Save the World

All of these songs touch me on a personal level. They are not just good tunes but much more.

If Not For You

Bangla Desh

Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)

Dark Horse  

Ding Dong Ding Dong

Crackerbox Palace

True Love

Blow Away

All Those Years Ago

Teardrops

I have a good few Desert Island George songs, it’s difficult to narrow them down.

 

I’d Have You Anytime  

Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp

Try Some, Buy Some

Soft-Hearted Hana,

Faster

Someplace Else

Any Road

 

I generally like the songs with a less-produced vocal, gives his natural voice plenty of time to shine rather than it being hid by layers of noise.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 I agree about your production comments. (I thought it was just me because I’m getting old). 

I’m going to try and do a fav song from each album list on the 25th. For now, I’ve been listening every morning to a looped version of the Shiva chant at the end of Brainwashed. After 15 minutes I feel like I’ve been hangin’ out with George.

In order to properly choose my current favorite song from each album, I am enjoying a marathon listen. 11 albums (skipping Electronic Sound ) featuring 134 songs is about 8 hours of music. Here are the You Tube playlists (select “Watch on You Tube” to see the song lists) if anyone wants to join me. The only song that is predetermined is Give Me Love, my all time favorite which won’t change. Btw-I believe the guitar overdubs for Give Me Love were completed at the Friar Park Studio 50 years ago this week.

Wonderwall Music

 

All Things Must Pass

 

Living In The Material World

 

Dark Horse

 

Extra Texture

 

Thirty Three & 1/3

 

George Harrison

 

Somewhere In England

 

Gone Troppo

 

Cloud Nine

 

Brainwashed

 

Singles & B-Sides

I haven’t dug much into George’s solo music other than All Things Must Pass , but I know a few other tunes as well.

I’m saving my marathon for Georgemas proper… which has been difficult, as there have been quite a few times in the last few days when I’ve really wanted to put a Harrialbum on a-hard-days-night-paul-7

However, I can probably pick a favorite from each album off the top of my head (save Wonderwall and Electronic a-hard-days-night-paul-10) – let’s see, here goes:

All Things Must Pass : this one is hard because there are just so dang many good tunes OWIE OUCH THIS HURTS but this is one of my favorite Harrisongs of all time so… “Run Of The Mill ” with an honorable mention to “Ballad Of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll)”

Living In The Material World : “Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)”, of course. That was easy (if only because “Miss O’Dell” is technically not on the album ahdn_george_06). Next –

Dark Horse : “It Is ‘He’ (Jai Sri Krishna)” – A bright spot on a rough album

Extra Texture : “You” – this is not one of my favorite albums but this is a fun tune

Thirty-Three & 1/3: “Crackerbox Palace”

George Harrison : This one’s also difficult because I love at least three-fifths of this album and very much like the rest. I guess I’ll go with “Your Love Is Forever”, but “Blow Away” could’ve easily taken the top spot and “Soft-Hearted Hana” deserves an honorable mention.

Somewhere In England : My favorite song from this album (“Sat Singing”) got booted off the album (“Oh! How rude!” – C-3P0) a-hard-days-night-john-7, so I’ll go with “Life Itself”.

Gone Troppo : “That’s The Way It Goes” with honorable mentions to “Greece” and “Unknown Delight” (I’m a sucker for a good ballad by a doting dad for his small child heart).

Cloud Nine : “This Is Love”, by a mile

Brainwashed: “Marwa Blues”
