1. While My Guitar Gently Weeps - This wins for me based on the awesomeness of the album version, as well as the acoustic demo, and the LOVE versions combined. They are all amazing, and enhance each other, and goes to show that no matter how it was going to be recorded by the Beatles, it was going to be a masterpiece.
2. Here Comes the Sun - A very close second for me
3. Something - It wouldn't be any other top 3 for me.
4. Piggies - what I think is one of Harrison's catchiest, and unjustly-hated songs.
5. Long, Long, Long - Very close between this and "It's All Too Much." A year ago, I would have easily put the latter in my top 4 Harrisongs, but I am finding the song hasn't grown much on me with time, whereas "Long, Long, Long" has.  Also, I give it extra points how amazing it sounds in Mono (as would have been originally intended by Harrison)

Honorable mentions: "It's All Too Much," "I Me Mine," "Old Brown Shoe," "If I Needed Someone," "Think for Yourself," "The Inner Light," "I Need You," "Not Guilty" (demo), "You Know What to Do" (demo)

Impossible for me to put them in order, but the five that make my list are:

Something
If I Needed Someone
While My Guitar Gently Weeps
Here Comes The Sun
Savoy Truffle

The "next" five, bubbling under... Don't Bother Me, Only A Northern Song, You Like Me Too Much, Think For Yourself, Long Long Long...

My five least favourite George tracks (I'm only counting those he wrote himself here by the way, no cover versions) during his time as a Beatle (again, in no particular order):

Blue Jay Way
The Inner Light
Piggies
For You Blue
Within You Without You

Finally, there were by my reckoning half a dozen "official" releases by The Beatles where George took lead vocal but didn't write the song. In my order of preference these are:

1. I'm Happy Just To Dance With You

(by a long margin, then.....)

2. Do You Want To Know A Secret?
3. Devil In Her Heart
4. Roll Over Beethoven
5. Chains
6. Everybody's Trying To Be My Baby


If forced to have a favourite, I guess it would be Here Comes The Sun.

If forced to have a worst: Blue Jay Way.

Something
I Want To Tell You
Here Comes The Sun
Piggies
Think For Yourself


While I'm here, I've always been intruiged by some of the Beatles most famous songs that have a minimal input from George. For example, Penny Lane - ok, he is on there doing something, but a lot of the songs from 67, that dont have a full on guitar bit, he's not really at the forefront.
Does everyone get my drift?  I always thought its kind of odd...
