BKAllmighty
Everybody (well, almost everybody) loves the Beatles, and there are top ten lists about their best songs everywhere. This list consists of the ten greatest Beatles songs written and (usually if not always) performed by George Harrison.

The Top TenXW

1While My Guitar Gently Weeps

This is by far the best 'Harri-song'. Both the real version and the Love version. It's an amazing song. This is George's songwriting peak.

Great song! The best song in the White Album!

2Something

One of the Beatles greatest songs, and the only other song that rivals this for best love song ever is "Your Song". What makes this song a great love song is that it is real. It doesn't have those fantasy elements that you hear in songs like Everything I Do I Do It For You and in every romantic movie. That's not real love; that's fantasy love. George Harrison sings about REAL love on this song. "You're asking me will my love grow, I don't know, I don't know". Love is one of the strangest human feelings and is the most complex to understand. This is a beautiful song, but George also keeps it real. Definitely his best Beatles song.

George Harrison is hands down, the best writer and member in The Beatles. - Mumbizz01

The best romantic song I've ever heard - ahmedaser

This is The Beatles, at a period where their record sleeves on their albums noted which Beatle wrote which track, when Harrison, still trying to grow as a musician in any way possible. Whether it was learning and heavily using the sitar, proving himself independent and musically unique to the McCartney/Lennon songwriting powerhouse (not to downplay their brilliance! ), Harrison took real politics, troubling politics, and slightly comedic politics and boiled it down into one of the best opening songs on a Beatles record. Brian Wilson recorded his masterpiece "Pet Sounds" in many ways as a response to this record, "Revolver", and George Harrison had an undoubtedly and absolutely vital importance in the formulation of a record that with original track after unique track, a fruitfully different record, more anything ever to be recorded and Wilson saw that in this album, and he was hooked with... YEAHEAHEAH TAXMAN!

5If I Needed Someone

One of the best songs to sing along to at the top of your lungs - braindamage

6Within You Without You

Nastily underrated tune if his

I feel like this song is one of George's most underrated songs, but yet it happens to be one of my favorites. George has always been my favorite Beatle.

7Think for Yourself

Totally under rated song. Can play it over and over and never get tired of it.

The fuzz bass in this song is awesome and it has a truly rhythmic quality to it. Geoge at some of his best and should be ranked much higher.

8It's All Too Much

Love it. So psychedelic and still meaningful.

Most underrated song by the most underrated beatle on the most underrated album.

The greatest song ever recorded.

9Long, Long, Long

Some people say that it is just a slow song about an annoyed loner. I think it is as perfect and deep than Here comes the sun

This Is The Masterpiece of the masterpiece from george harrison!
Deep And Full Of Meaning.. I just can thingking why this Song Out from top Ten?

10I Want to Tell You

This song is my favourite Beatles song, so underrated should be higher.

This song is just beutiful I've been a musician 60 years since I was a kid and still my favorite song all the other musicians I know say that's one of their favorite very hard to come up with a song like this I don't think anyone actually relizes this
