You disqualified it, but I think that it is a bit of a disservice to the performance. The original song was nowhere as good as successful (or as good in my opinion) as Harrison's version.
I did because that's my opinion. I've only heard the original once and I much prefer Harrison's version but because he didn't write it, I don't consider it as good a song as many other solo Beatles songs.
Like My Sweet Lord, it's a great song but it's a rip-off of He's so Fine. So I don't consider it as great a song.
Another way of putting it would be for me to say that Harrison, McCartney and Starr all wrote their best songs whilst part of the Beatles. Lennon wrote his best song as a solo artist. So that would be why Lennon gets my vote for favourite solo Beatle.
