Readers Poll Results: George Harrison's 10 Best Beatles Songs

Readers Poll Results: George Harrison's 10 Best Beatles Songs

Although George Harrison -- aka "The Quiet Beatle" -- died of cancer in November 2001, his influence as a guitarist, songwriter and singer is still felt.

And, despite the fact that Harrison released several lauded solo albums and wrote songs for other artists, his best-known songs are still the ones he wrote for The Beatles.

Earlier this week, in honor of what would've been Harrison's 69th birthday (February 25), we asked readers to choose Harrison's best compositions as a Beatle. The poll offered 22 strong choices, from 1963's "Don't Bother Me" to 1970's "I Me Mine" and "For You Blue."

You'll find the results of that poll in the 10 videos below. Hint: The winning song recently won another Beatles-related poll on Can you guess which one it is?

Anyway, thank you -- as always -- for voting!

10. It's All Too Much (1969)

"It's All Too Much" is one of two Harrison-penned songs on the Yellow Submarine album, which was released in January 1969. The other one is "Only A Northern Song," which finished at No. 15 in our poll.

The video below features the remastered version from 2009.
