By the way, am I the only one who imagines an extra T at the end of the topic title every single time?

Maybe I should just grow up...

lets face it he could never belt out a song like John or Paul could, I mean.....could he sing Oh Darling or Twist & Shout ?

could he even belt out 'it was twenty years ago today....' or the difficult Eight Days a Week ?

George was very limited in his singing, always sort of gentle and not very expressive.

About who couldn't or could do what...

Imagine George's Something sung in a style of refrain of Oh!Darling!
That would sound... How???

Could Ringo sing Twist 'n' Shout? No. But he could marvelously hit the drums!
Second, could Beatles be without Ringo as a drummer? Paul plays drums on
Back in the U.S.S.R., Dear Prudence, The Ballad of John and Yoko, so is his (Paul's) drumming
bad on that songs - or is it worse than Ringo's drumming? It isn't - Paul could certainly
play the drums! So why didn't they stay as a trio (without a drummer), or even a duo
(Paul & John)? Probably 'cause it wouldn't function like a trio or duet. Was it George
(or Paul) who said on Anthology: When Ringo came, everything melted together perfectly...
John & Paul wrote WALHFMF for Ringo to suite his vocal capabilities - and that's why
song sound so good!

John & Paul weren't two bad guys who didn't give others any space.
When Ringo was asked by reporters for band's plans, he often replied: Don't know. Ask the other
members!
- and George once said, after the Beatles: I really like to BE IN THE BAND - I don't do
any dance steps while I perform like some others do, I just stand and play the guitar...
- and concluded,
ironically: I really didn't have career after the Beatles...
So that statement about being a part of the bend (and not the lead singer) and I just stand and play guitar
says everything about George.

Every George's song on an Beatle album is a little treasure. Within Without You doesn't fit in rock album
called Sgt. Pepper, it's too exotic - but it's great song! It should have been a single!
I won't say - oh, they should put more George's stuff on records - if you want to listen just to his songs,
you can make your own compilation, from Don't Bother Me to I Me Mine...
Album Yellow Submarine has two of his great masterpieces:
Only A Northern Song and It's All Too Much.

And, of course, it's impossible for George to have John's or Paul's voice...

And now, tell me that you didn't notice George's screaming on It's All Too Much.
You'll say: What screaming? He's singing it in a rather mellow voice. Yes, true.
But he also screams. Through his guitar. That is, George could scream!
His guitar could gently weep and scream loudly, if neceseary!

Conclusion:
If you want to hear George singing like Paul or John, you are asking
him to do dance steps. And he doesn't do that, he just stands and plays
the guitar...

Are you dense or something? Nobody said that there was anything wrong with George's singing. All that was said was that he had a weaker voice than John or Paul and he couldnt belt out rockers like they could. If you cant understand that then I dont know what to tell you.

It would sound like sh*t but whats your point? The fact is that Paul or John could sing 'Something'. George couldnt sing 'Oh Darling'. Dont know why you brought it up.

Probably because they played live all the time. If they were nothing more than a studio band, they could have lived without Ringo.

Lol. Yeah, ask George how easy it was for him to get a song or two on any of the albums. He practically had to beg.

No, its pretty much universally known as the worst song on the album. All of Georges indian music sucked and he had clunkers too. Piggies,,,good lord.

Great, the first Beatles single that would have bombed.

Masterpieces? Cripes, nobody but true Beatle fans have even heard those songs before.

Screams through his guitar? Come on now. Your too invested. George was a decent player, but he isnt bringing that kind of emotion through his playing to the table.

Basically what we've been saying throughout this entire thread.

;D  please explain these rather bogus/simplistic/over-indulgent statements to me. ;D
your eccentric, garden variety ruminations are boorish and absurd.

what's a comfort zone and why aren't you going to get a helter skelter out of george. one more time george sang many hard rockers when the beatles played live. you seem totally unable to grasp this simple yet important point.  ???

Ah, these f***ing people. So blinded by their own idolization of the band that anything negative said about them is shot down even though they know the truth. You cant talk to them in a civil manner. Each Beatle was perfect and could do no wrong. If you say anything less than George Harrison was the greatest guitar player and greatest singer ever, then you get crucified.

Christ, you know it ain't easy. You know how hard it can be.

Of course you're right Todd. Even the untouchable John Lennon once stated that George wasn't the greatest singer of all. Because people like George, they tend to overrate George's compositions. Before 1966 it was hardly worth noting as far as I'm concerned. Taxman was a good song, Guitar Weeps (and he needed Eric Clapton to weep it), Something and Here Comes The Sun. And that's about it. He sang those songs and he did a good job there. His solo years were mostly mellow songs and his voice suited that best.

The sad thing about it though Cor, is that I like almost all of Georges output with the Beatles, but i'll admit to the shortcomings.

Thats not even realistic actually. Hell i'm bored, lets list them.

'Dont Bother Me' - Guilty pleasure of mine, but its not a very good song.
'I Need You' - A throw away
'You Like Me Too Much' - Sucks
'Think For Yourself' - Decent song
'If I Needed Someone' - His first really good tune. I like it a lot.
'Taxman' - Alright song that I can listen to mainly due to Pauls guitar playing. Ironic isnt it?
'Love You To', 'Within You Without You', 'Inner Light' - All sh*t
'I Want To Tell You' - I like this song. Great hook and melody.
'WMGGW' - Beatles biggest, bloated, most boring song ever. If John or Paul wrote it, it would have been just another Beatle song.
'Piggies'- An embarrassment
'Long long Long - Another guilty pleasure of mine only to be screwed by the worst production ever.
Savoy Truffle - nice, clever song. It thumps.
'Only A Northern Song' - I like this song too, but I used to smoke a lot of dope.
'Its All Too Much' - see above
'Something' - Bores me and gets too much credit, but its good I suppose
'Here Comes The Sun' - One of his best. Still sounds fresh today. great melody.
'I Me Mine' - this tune drags for me. Brings me down for some reason.
'For Your Blue' - I have never liked this song. the guitar plucks annoy me to no end.
'Blue Jay Way' - Sucks
'Old Brown Shoe' - I like it, but its monotonous. The break kind of saves it.
