Oh, good grief!  :D  Another impossible poll!

George's solo work is so varied, this list would have to be 20 choices long, and I still don't think you'd come close to picking everyone's favorites.

I'm going to be really rigorous and just pick:

ATMP 1: What Is Life and Let It Down
ATMP 2: Beware of Darkness and Hear Me Lord
Brainwashed: Pisces Fish and... and... the whole rest of the album!  ;D

Seriously, on both these albums, there's not a song I would skip (except the remake of MSL but that doesn't really count).

But as for songs that just come out of the blue, "Cheer Down". I still remember hearing that in the theatre and sitting bolt upright and saying "George!" (I think I even said it out loud.)  :B Great song, and always makes me feel happy.

I voted for My Sweet Lord.  I've always liked Got My Mind Set On You, especially the video which was a hoot!

Ooh, I love that one, too. I usually play it off the ATMP CD, and then follow it with the music-only version (because once is not enough).

The trouble with George's songs is that there are so many of them that I truly enjoy, it really depends on my mood. I can't say I have a clear favorite; sometimes one or another appeals most. Cheers!

OH, SO MANY GEORGE SONGS TO CHOOSE FROM!!

Well , I vote for Give Me Love because i love the meaning
of the lyrics & his voice is so beautiful on it. (George was an amazing singer).
Also the guitar solo on his is perfect! No one plays guitar like that now!

for me it always be not only one
Georges famousts song is My sweet Lord - it's beautiful
But I prefer Fish on the Sand, Any Road, Cloud Nine, Stuck inside Cloud and Brainwashed ...
And so on and so on ...

Still can't decide ... cause I love all George's solo songs !
George is such a great artist ... I just love his voice and tone of his guitar

this one is difficult... but the first solo-song i really fell in love with was ballad of sir frankie crisp. this one is amazing, as is give me love (this one can change my mood completely and makes me so happy sometimes) and art of dying.

including his beatle-songs too it must be while my guitar gently weeps. for sure.

well... and i've to mention if not for you.... and i got my mind set on you. i LOVE this song and it has to be said ^^

To me his best solo song is Stuck Inside a Cloud, sometimes I cry when I listen to it. I still don't understand how Brainwashed sold so badly.
