[Top 5 Tuesday] Top 5 Beatles Songs Written By George Harrison

On this day in 1943, George Harrison was born.  I’ve done previous [Top5] lists for Beatles songs written by Paul, Beatles songs in general, and now this time I’ll focus on those written by “The Quiet One.”

5 – Within You Without You

I’ve always been a big fan of the Indian influence George brought. Sitars and tablas have such an interesting sound, and to incorporate it into pop music without feeling silly required a skillful songwriter like Harrison.


4 – Taxman

This was written with a little help from Lennon, but it still makes my Harrison list. One of the angrier songs by the Beatles, I like the sneer that comes through.


3 – Here Comes the Sun

This top 3 is pretty much interchangeable.  Who could really argue against this grouping, in any order?


2 – Something

Frank Sinatra said this was “the greatest love song of the past 50 years”…and if it’s good enough for Frank, it’s good enough for me.


1 – While My Guitar Gently Weeps

Like I said, this is pretty much a toss-up for first, second & third place. My opinion could vary on any given day, but for now, this one stands atop the mountain.
