Not really sure....I just recently acquired his solo disc All Things Must Pass, but so far only had one spin through the first disc....I thought it was pretty good though from what I heard.

Something.

One of the best songs written by anybody in my opinion, and that solo....and that chorus.

I don't think his solo stuff is all it's cracked up to be, I mean they're good songs, but it gets monotonous. George needed the Beatles moreso than Paul and John IMHO.

"My Sweet Lord," "What is Life?" and "All Things Must Pass" were the best songs he released without The Beatles. I think my favourite is "It Don't Come Easy" which he let Ringo take credit for and played guitar on.

^Let the record grow on you, it took me a few listens to hear the standouts.

Too many to mention. He actually had two solo records during the Beatles, "Wonderwall Music" and I think it's called "Electronic Sounds" (it's like Lennon and Yoko's experimental "Two Virgins" LP).

From his solo career "My Sweet Lord", "Hear Me Lord", "All Things Must Pass", "All Those Years Ago", there's so many songs I could mention too. His second two records were good, most people say he slumped in the late 70s, early 80s till the records, "Cloud 9" and he joined up with Bob Dylan, Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty and Roy Orbison and made the band, "The Travelling Wilburys". His last solo record was good too, it's called "Brainwashed".

From the Beatles "Something", "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", "Here Comes the Sun", "For You Blue", "Taxman", "Blue Jay Way", "It's All Too Much", and a couple of his songs on the "Revolver" and "Rubber Soul" LPs. He's a good songwriter not as good as John or Paul but certainly right up there!

Out of the Beatles while artistically good, I feel many of his songs could be catchier, I think the same about John too. On the other hand Paul's solo career can be too poppy, though he was the most commercially successful.

P.S. Dayum, no one's gonna read ^that!

That song ("Something") came to mind as soon as I saw the title.

I think Taxman's awesome too. It's quite funny if you listen to the lyrics.

To add to all the others Think For Yourself is a favourite of mine. I love the bass in it and he just wrote a really catchy tune.

Out of the Blue is a sick jam.... you'd never hear any of the other Beatles put out an 11 minute instrumental jam. Wah Wah, My Sweet Lord, What Is Life? are all great songs. All of George's Beatles songs (except for Blue Jay Way) are amazing and are just as good if not better than any Paul or John song.

Oh yeh, Wah Wah is awesome.

I liked the line; "Although your minds opaque, try thinking more than just for your own sake". I loved Georges Rubber Soul and Revolver songs (except the indian ones).

^^ That song is the only song I've ever heard that uses the word "rectify."


Wah wah...one of my favorite riffs ever. Isn't It a Pity...underrated.

Obviously his notable songs during the Beatles are widely cited, several from his solo career were also well written. I will go with a few songs not mentioned here that are on par with some of the best he did.

Blow Away
This Is Love
When We Was Fab
That's The Way Things Go
Life Itself
So Sad
Dark Horse (which was mentioned)
Just For Today

^I totally forgot about Badge. That's in contention for my favorite Cream song. The riff that kicks in midway through with the rotating speaker is one of the finest moments in music.

With Beatles : I Me Mine (I cant believe it was only said ONCE!!!) the only reason I can pick out ONE single george song is because when I learned it I didnt play another song on my guitar for weeks!

Without Beatles: Beware of Darkness

Nobody mentioned "Isn't it a pity"? I think that was a pretty good song when he went solo. With the Beatles, however, I think "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" is one of his best. "I Me Mine" is really good, too. <-- Forgot about that one.
