In celebration of what would’ve been George Harrison’s 74th birthday, we count down his best Beatles songs.
Today (February 25) would be the legendary George Harrison’s 74th birthday. Before the Beatles split, the guitarist contributed several of the very greatest songs in the Fab Four’s canon. Here are his 10 best Beatles tracks.
10. ‘I Need You’ Appears on: ‘Help!’
About the song: A simplistic love song was the first of many that Harrison would go onto write. Essentially, this was his big break as a songwriter for The Beatles after releasing two albums with no songwriting contribution from the guitarist. They decided to use it and recorded ‘Ticket to Ride’ that same day.
Best lyric: “Please remember how I feel about you, I could never really live without you.”
9. ‘You Like Me Too Much’ Appears on: ‘Help!’
About the song: This song, released on the ‘Help!’ album, was written by George Harrison and uses vocal overdubs for his voice. Bob Dylan later used the piano introduction in the song for his song ‘Temporary Like Achilles’.
Best lyric: “You’ll never leave me and you know it’s true/’Cause you like me too much and I like you”.
