8. All Things Must Pass – George Harrison
Do you want another controversial statement? Okay, good. George Harrison was just as good a songwriter as Lennon or McCartney.
Okay, that may not necessarily be completely true, but if one was to make such an argument, All Things Must Pass would be the quintessential evidence needed to sway any doubters. An incredibly spiritual song that reflects on the very existence of human life, the lyrics to this one are so profound that, more than any other Beatles song, musical journalists swarm to it to analyse its meaning and content. Everybody seems to think it’s about the breaking up of the Beatles, you see.
