"All Things Must Pass," best heard in its original February, 1969 demo form. "Crackerbox Palace" is a great one, too.  :)

I love Isn't it a Pity, All Things Must Pass, and Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth). They're so underrated! I mean, are they EVER played on radio?? Ever?? Why only My Sweet Lord? What's that about?

It's radio programmers playing it safe: give the audience the same old thing they've liked before over and over again until they get sick of it and stop listening. Then give them something else over and over again until they get sick of that, too. And so on. By the sound of them, most radio stations have astonishingly short playlists.  :-/

"What Is Life" is my favorite from the ones listed above. But my absolute favorite has to be "Life Itself". It's so beautiful yet so overlooked, I also love Beautiful Girl, Behind That Locked Door and Sat Singing (a rejected track from Somewhere in England)

Art of Dying is one of George's finest songs!  :)

Kind of a strange batch of songs to represent George's "best."

"That Is All" and "Not Guilty"?  Why no "Blow Away"? "Beware of Darkness"? "When We Was Fab"? Or some of his biggest hits, "Got My Mind Set on You" or "All Those Years" Ago"?

But my favourite would have to be "All Things Must Pass."

You're right, Dbone828, it's kind of a small list. Of the ones mentioned, "That Is All" and "What Is Life?" along with "Beware of Darkness" would be at the top of my list, followed by "Blow Away" and "All Those Years Ago". It really depends on my mood. But I like so many of George's songs, it's hard to choose. :)

All Things Must Pass, always. The lyrics are beautiful and the tune is gorgeous.

Art of Dying and That's What It Takes are very close seconds.
