Since we're on the topic of Paul's instrument parts on this album, i love how he plays guitar (not counting bass) on at least 11 of the 30 tracks. Also, i'm surprised Julia made it in your top 10 Flyingbrains.

John's White Album songs are packed with emotional content. Paul's are well-crafted but on this album they just don't feel as emotionally engaged as John's. I would quibble over "Long, Long, Long" which is one of my favorites, particularly the drum track. Of particular note on the White Album, though, are Paul's contributions to the others' songs - the piano part in the intro to While My Guitar Gently Weeps, all the overdubs on Dear Prudence, the "Fool On The Hill" recorder bit on Glass Onion, crazy good bass playing everywhere...

As always, the whole was greater than the sum of its parts!  

 Not to mention his mind bending piano line on Sexy Sadie. Although its a John song (and my favorite song of all time) the piano part makes it. 

Ranking all 30 would look something like this. 

Sexy Sadie

Happiness Is A Warm Gun

While My Guitar Gently Weeps

I'm So Tired

Yer Blues

Martha My Dear

Long Long Long

Blackbird

I Will

Dear Prudence

Honey Pie

Cry Baby Cry

Mother Natures Son

Glass Onion

Rocky Raccoon

Savoy Truffle

Birthday

Back In The USSR

The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Billl

Helter Skelter

Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except For Me And My Monkey

Julia

Revolution 1

Revolution 9

Good Night

Wild Honey Pie

Ob La Di Ob La Da

Piggies

Why Don't We Do It In the Road?

Don't Pass Me By

 

I love all songs on the White Album

-Bob Dylan, Subterranean Homesick Blues

It took me a while to appreciate Julia but I love it now.  I'd say it probably has some of John's most sensitive lyrics.

It's also a very nice song to play on guitar.

This is gonna be hard. I'm probably also gonna end up listing songs multiple times which will make my entire list meaningless. I'm also probably going to regret my order as it could change regularly.
