Other: 'What Is Life" which was unbelievably relegated to the back of 'My Sweet Lord' in many countries (certainly was here!) - top song in its own right...

What a hard choice - I REALLY, REALLY LOVE George Harrison!  :) :) :)

I picked "Blow Away" but I almost picked "Other" to enter "What Is Life", and debated whether to pick "Crackerbox Palace" too.

concrete blonde recorded a version of "beware of darkness" on one of their records, and the week george harrison died i saw them @ the roxy in boston and they performed it -not a dry eye in the house :'( :'( :'( :'(i will never forget it. i'm seeing todd rundgren @ the roxy this tuesday(tomorrow), and he's going to be doing "while my guitar gently weeps" which he recorded for a george harrison tribute album,and even though it's been a while since george left the material world, i'm predicting a similar emotional response(from me,anyway).

Yep, followed by 'When we was fab'. It's a simple song but it has such a nice feel to it.

I never thought much of 'My sweet lord'. It does have that kind of 'He's so fine' by The Chiffons feel to it - and I didn't think of that song either.  :-\

Well, I bought "My Sweet Lord" whe it was out, but now have to admit it is a bit....repetetive...  ::)

Of the above choices I would go with "Give Me Love" - I disliked it in 1973, but it sounds nicely nostalgic now.

Also points for "Dark Horse" as Harry-boy had a very interesting "I'm on heavy drugs and mumbling" performance in that one...  :P

My favorite solo hits of his are "My Sweet Lord" and "I've Got My Mind Set On You" (the latter of which was parodied by Weird Al).

I'm with you nally on "My Sweet Lord" and "My Mind set on you"  but as someone said they are a bit repetitive.
 
Is there a Ringo poll somewhere?   I love Ringo!

I know they're a bit repetitive but I like 'em anyway. In fact, I heard "My Sweet Lord" on the radio the other day, and I knew there was a George Harrison song poll, but I hadn't voted in it yet, so I decided to post in it. Of course, I haven't voted yet, since I'm torn between that one and "I've Got My Mind Set On You."

A few months back I started a thread about this, but...

Anybody see or have "The Concert For Bangladesh"?  It came out on DVD last November, and the DVD is awesome!  :D

In the concert film you'll recognize several rock luminaries besides George, including Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, the (recently) late great Billy Preston, Badfinger, and Leon Russell.

Highly recommended!  :)

"My Sweet Lord" again... sums up a sunny afternoon in the 70s. "Got My Mind Set On You" was great too.

"My Sweet Lord" was re-released in the UK after George's passing. I'm sure it went top 10.

Re-released in the UK in Jannuary 2002 and reached number one for the second time.
