George Harrison— it was such a shame to know that one of the finest musicians of all time didn’t even get the opportunity to shine bright on the light of The Beatles fame. Unlike the legendary songwriting partnership of John Lennon and Paul McCartney, Harrison was only given at least two spots to fill inside the Beatle albums, a burden that encouraged the quiet Beatle to only create songs that are deemed much worthy than the others. It all worked out for him, and in the final years in the band, he emerged as the true rock hero, creating songs that are beloved by many and will continue to thrive long as the music industry is here. Below are the 10 greatest songs of George Harrison in his tenure from The Beatles.


“I Need You” – Help! (1965)

This modest love song from Harrison contains some neat and innovative guitar running through and some simple lyrics. It’s a great start for him to make love songs.

“I Want to Tell You” – Revolver (1966)

“I Want to Tell You,” tells us about the dangers of filling your head with too many ideas at the same time. It belongs to the band’s Revolver sessions, snagging 3 spots for his songs (including “Taxman” and “Love You To”).

“Within You Without You” – Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” (1967)

Exotic and the one who truly carries the distinct, eastern influence on the band, the song is just that. Its lovely sitar and tambura arrangement is what you’d ever need to hear.

“Savoy Truffle” – White Album (1968)

In here, we have Harrison’s take on goofy songs about sweets. “Savoy Truffle” made happen upon knowing his friend Eric Clapton’s addiction to chocolate.

“I Me Mine” – Let It Be (1970)

Egos partially destroyed the friendship between The Beatles inside their Let it Is sessions. Harrison’s “I Me Mine,” it’s not much of a full song, but you can still hear the singer’s bluesy touch to it.

“It’s All Too Much” – Yellow Submarine (1969)

For the band’s first animated movie, the band made 4 new tracks to be included, 2 of which were created by George. “It’s All Too Much” came from the band’s Magical Mystery Tour sessions, so you could spot some eccentric and psychedelic touches on the song.

“Taxman” – Revolver (1966)

The Beatles weren’t much of a political band back then, but they weren’t apolitical either. For “Taxman,” Harrison was keen to write about the ridiculous taxes that the band was obliged to pay at that time. It’s a cheeky move from the singer.

“Here Comes the Sun” – Abbey Road (1969)

For the last album that the band created (Let It Be was released later, but it was made earlier than Abbey Road), Harrison made use of the 2 spots given to him in the Beatle album. With no doubt whatsoever, they’re the best songs from the album. “Here Comes the Sun” is full of positive energy; it gives hope for tomorrow and is one of the lightest songs from The Beatles.

“Something” – Abbey Road (1969)

“Something” is the 2nd song of George inside the album, and it’s easy to just fall in love with it. Frank Sinatra once labeled it as the “greatest love song” ever made and he’s right. With gorgeous riffs and incredible lyricism, it’s Harrison’s most unforgettable song.

“While My Guitar Gently Weeps” – White Album (1968)

One of Harrison’s most well-known songs is also the one with the most remarkable guitar riffs courtesy of Eric Clapton. The song is excellent in many ways and can be easily considered to be one of the greatest Beatle songs to ever exist.
