Found on: All Things Must Pass (1970)
Picked by: PA, JG
Harrison wrote more than just his two or three song allotment on every Beatles album, so when the time came to make his first solo record, he had a treasure trove to choose from. What Is Life is an especially shiny and valuable bauble. It's driven by surprisingly muscular horns and a locked-in rhythm section. It also may have single-handedly inspired the Christian rock genre, with lyrics that could refer to a lover or Jesus himself.
