It’s hard to believe that #AbbeyRoad still holds up after all these years. But then again it’s a bloody cool album…
Paul McCartney was spotted with Michael Jackson’s sister in an unearthed photo recently. In other news regarding The Beatles and Paul McCartney, with the news that Abbey Road has reached number one in the United Kingdom, fans of the fab four, like this one on subreddit for The Beatles have come up with a definate track-by-track ranking of each song on the album. As it should be stated, this ranking is clearly their opinion.
As Reddit user u/sanantonium writes:
“Abbey Road is my second favorite Beatles record and one of my all-time favorite albums. it is a timeless masterpiece, which sounds just as fresh today as it did in 1969. ranking this album was incredibly difficult, especially the top 10, as all of these tracks are of paramount quality.
This is just my opinion and I would love to hear your input as well about what your rankings look like
17. Her Majesty – Her majesty is barely even a song and it doesn’t have a lot to say, her majesty is barely even a song and it’s just paul singing away, I want to tell you that it’s a great song, but it ranks last on here, her majesty is barely even a song and I would just stay clear, oh yeah, i would just stay clear
16. Octopus’s Garden – Oh Ringo Starr. One of the only songs credited to Ringo Starr is a goofy, light, fun song, but it doesn’t come close to the other tracks on this album, in terms of substance.
15. Sun King – A sort of companion to “Here Comes The Sun” that fails to be es memorable as other songs on the album, and a weak part of the first medley.
14. Mean Mr. Mustard – I like to divide the last half of abbey road as two medleys. the first one starting with “you never give me your money” and ending with “she came in through the bathroom window” and the second “medley”, being the 3-track “golden slumber”/”carry that weight”/”the end”. both medleys taken all together would land far higher on the album, but to inspect these tracks separately, I ended up ranking this song as the lowest among the short, fun, playful tracks.
13. Polythene Pam – Ahh john’s ode to a dominatrix, as the medley progresses I feel like it gets better and better.
12. She Came in Through the Bathroom Window – Paul’s fantastic melody deserves this spot as it brings the Abbey Road medley to a roaring close.
11. Carry That Weight – The second part of the three-part “Golden Slumbers”/”Carry That Weight”/”The End”, is not as impressive as its counterparts, however, it is still great and the medley put together would rank much higher.
10. Maxwell’s Silver Hammer – A silver hammer-wielding, teacher-killing, a violent murderer is the main protagonist of this quirky Mccartney song. and it’s fantastic.
9. Here Comes The Sun – Perhaps one of the most famous Beatles songs and a favorite among non-Beatles fans. this shows how unutilized George Harrison’s contributions were to the band’s discography.
8. Golden Slumbers – Largely a song composed by Paul, that sees him adopt a poem that he saw into a musical phenomenon.
7. The End -“And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make” John, Paul, George, and Ringo all breathe a sigh of relief as if they’ve finally been set free. a beautiful ending to the Beatles era.
6. Because – Eerie psychedelia, featuring harrowingly beautiful melodies over a crude synthesizer. one of my favorite Beatles songs and I cannot believe this song only ranks 6th, but everything below somehow manages to be of slightly better quality.
5. You Never Give Me Your Money – A phenomenal song and the strongest of the first medley, that lingers with melancholia.
4. Oh! Darling – Paul McCartney sings his heart out on this gut-busting song about a desperate plea to win someone back.
3. Come Together – One of the most iconic bass lines in rock. this swampy Lennon campaign song is a masterful symbol of Beatles’ history.
2. I Want You (She’s So Heavy) – An epic of a song and a grandiose dedication to Yoko Ono from John.
1. Something = George Harrison’s shining moment. This is one of the best love songs of all time, if not the best. a great testament to Harrison’s artistic quality, as he was always on the backdrop, while john and paul were in the spotlight.”
