Question: So, who's the better songwriter?

George Harrison
Graham Nash?


  1. harrison...genius, inspired, just the right level of 60s idealism, love the influences of eastern spiritualism in the melodies and lyrics.

  2. george in the late 60s early 70s

  3. Based on their best 4 or 5 songs, I'm going with Harrison:

    From what I know, Harrison had three pop masterpieces: the Beatles' "Here Comes the Sun" and Something," and the Traveling Wilburys' "Handle With Care." Two other gems are his solo song "Blow Away" and "Photograph," a collaboration with Ringo Starr.

    Nash was responsible for a couple of good Hollies songs, and other than that I know only of his CSN(Y) work. "Wasted on the Way" compares favorably to Harrison's best, and while "Just a Song Before I Go," "Teach Your Children," and "Our House" are each excellent, I'd say Harrison, hands down.
