The real song is Love You To. But I pick Within You Without You. Great lyrics. Nice sitar and vocals. One of George's best and one of my favorite Sgt. Pepper songs.

Within you without you, I think the meaning to life is in those lyrics somewhere.

Though I love the beginning to Love You To, I'll vote for Within You Without You because the composition of it is beautiful. And also the line "Are you one of them?" and the following music always gets me.

For a minute there, I thought this was a battle between Within You, Without You and Love Me Do.

I'll go with Love You To. I don't know why, but I could never get into Within You Without You, and it doesn't seem to flow well with the rest of the Sgt. Pepper lineup in my opinion.

"Within You Without You" all the way. Cosmic, powerful, inner, beautiful. Lovely words and melody.

Within You Without You... it's possibly my favourte George song, phisolophically speaking. The sound is perfect, what it explains is powerful, important and at the same time simply... and man! He was in his 20s when he wrote that!

It has to be Within You Without You. I love all of George's Indian songs(esp. when Love You To is played in Yellow Submarine) but WYWY is so deep in meaning. That is the only song on Sgt.Pepper that I put on repeat when I listen to my C.D. I love the beginning esp. the sound of the sitar,it almost sounds like a harp(I think so anyway.I'm not musically gifted). I loved hearing him singing and as Amalthea says he was only about 24 when he wrote it. The best thing is that he didn't need the help of a collaborator. He wrote himself. WYWY just sounds more profound than"Love You To"

I'll be the one to break the cycle, I guess. Although I love both songs, I pick "Love You To" because it has one of my favorite lines from George in it that melts me anytime I hear it. "I'll make love to you, if you want me to" - it's incredibly sexy.
Sorry for such a shallow response!

I just edited the topic title in case you're wondering. I vote for The Inner Light, I think that's his best Indian themed song. Ok ok, sorry. I guess I'd have to go with WYWY for the lyrics.
