George Harrison's Best Beatle Songs

1. Something (1969) George's best song, one which Frank Sinatra described as "the greatest love song ever written." The first number one by the Beatles not written by John or Paul.

2. Here Comes The Sun (1969) From the album "Abbey Road". Peter Tosh and Richie Havens both had hit versions of this song.

3. While My Guitar Gently Weeps (1968) George's best song off  the white album. Some people might be surprised to know that it was Eric Clapton doing the guitar solo. Jeff Healey did a great Cover version.

4. Taxman (1966) George's protest song which appears on the album "Revolver". The guitar solo is actually played by Paul McCartney. Stevie Ray Vaughn, Franz Ferdinand and Power Station all did cover versions.

5. Within You Without You (1967) This song helped popularise world music. Featuring mostly Indian musicians, George is the only Beatle to perform on this track from "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band".

6. Old Brown Shoe (1969) Released as the B-side to "The Ballad Of John And Yoko". George plays both guitar and bass on this one.

7. I Need You (1965) From the movie and album "Help!". One of the first original compositions by George to appear on a Beatles record since 1963's "Don't Bother Me".

8 I Me Mine (1970) The last song recorded by the Beatles (without Lennon). Also the title of his autobiography.

9. For You Blue (1969) From the album "Let It Be". Released as the B-side to "The Long And Winding Road".
