For me, "It's All Too Much" is what I chose. The musicial arrangement is very powerful and the lyrics are some of George's best.

Yes we can make many additional polls, so we stay busy.

But from this list I chose I Want To Tell You, because that is a good reference to the change of style where George's songwriting was going through but at the same time where The Beatles as a group were in a changing period.

An example is the piano, which produces for that period in the 60's new and 'false' chords and chords changes like where it is 'when you're near, all these things they seem to drag me down' that part was absolute non-combining piano finger picking, also at 'and if I seem to act unkind, it's only me it's not my mind, that is confusing things' and listen to the bass which actually takes over the leading role.

I chose Something because it is my all time favourite song, but close behind it is It's All Too Much.

<font size="2" face="Tahoma, Arial, sans-serif">That is my feeling also. Something has such a beautiful guitar solo and I just love everything about this song-his vocals, lyrics and general emotion of the song. And I love It's All Too Much. "All the world is birthday cake, so take a piece, but not too much"

But I Want To Tell You is a great song also!

I simply adore "Here Comes The Sun." I can't believe I'm the only one who's picked it so far!

Guess which one I chose!?! Bet you can't! I love the guitar sound in "I Want To Tell You", and the bass sound is very heavy and prominent in the song. Which isn't really common in songs, that the bass can be heard clearly.

It was really going to be a coin toss. Between my 2 favourite George Harrison songs. For You Blue (which, I believe was not on the list), and I Want To Tell You. Both of these songs are my absolute favourite Harrisongs.

Definitely a very "hard choice" since I'm a George
fanatic!!! I chose "WMGGW" even tho MY SWEET LORD is my absolute FAVORITE (hmm...I'm surprised it wasn't on the poll).

I've been playing BRAINWASHED like crazy since it came out and there are some pretty great tracks on the CD as well...

TOUGH CHOICE!!!!!!!!!! [img]graemlins/thinker.gif[/img]

I couldn't decide which to choose! (I am a George Fan... so I can say I like all his songs!)

My vote went for "Something", my favorite of all! But if I could vote again, I'll go with "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", because this ballad helps me wake up! (Y'know, the last part... [img]graemlins/laugh2.gif[/img] )LOL!

Just kidding!

I voted for "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," despite the fact that it brings back a pretty painful memory I'd rather not share. It was a tough decision between that and "Savoy Truffle," though. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

I could never chose one George song over another. That would be like chosing one of your own kids of another for me. I can say I have a real love for "While My Guitar Gently Weeps".
