I think there is not one song written by George which isn´t the favorite for somebody.

My personal ranking would be:

1. Something

2. Here Comes The Sun

3. While My Guitar …

4. Within You, Without You

5. Taxman

6. Long, Long, Long

7. Old Brown Shoe

… but now it´s getting tough!

The numbers 1.-3. could be listed in any order … but afterwards it´s certainly a matter of hefty discussion.

I´m sure some would count “Blue Jay Way “, “Only A Northern Song ” and “It´s All Too Much” among the top-10, but I won´t.

The same for “Piggies ” and Savoy Truffle ” … but I really like “For You Blue “, “I Need You ” and “Not Guilty ” (no official release though).

“Don´t Bother Me” is neither the best song, nor the worst … but which one would be #22?

I love(d) George, but no, he was no better songwriter than Paul or John, but at least “Something ” and “Here Comes The Sun ” are equal to everything Paul and John ever wrote.

BTW: my favorite song SUNG by George is “Roll Over Beethoven “.

I was always a Here Comes The Sun guy when this topic came up acknowledging that Something and While My Guitar Gently Weeps got more of the love. Taxman could be the first ‘Hold my beer!’ song ever written and If I Needed Someone is so on message for the times.

Unless Paul McCartney knocks on my door I am unlikely to be impressed.

It’s got to be ‘Here Comes The Sun ‘.  But I really love some of the versions of ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps ‘ ….I think the acoustic solo one is better than the version on the White Album .
